Jamie Lee Curtis Returns to New 'Halloween' After Iconic Character Was Killed In 'Resurrection'
Universal Pictures
More Scream Queens: Then & Now

The character of Laurie Strode was stabbed and thrown off a building by "Halloween's" killer Michael Myers.

Scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis is back with a vengeance, reprising her role as Laurie Strode for Miramax's 2018 sequel "Halloween."

Universal Pictures released the first photo of Curtis in costume, as killer Michael Myers lurks behind her with a butcher knife.

"Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago," explained the press release.

"Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween," Curtis added in a tweet.

The Laurie Strode character was unceremoniously killed off in "Halloween: Resurrection" back in 2002, which the new movie will apparently ignore.

"'Halloween: Resurrection was a joke,'" Curtis told TooFab back in 2015. "The only way I could do 'Halloween: H20' was to agree to come back in a next movie ... because of the way 'Halloween: H20' ends."

"I would never have been in that movie," she added, before saying that her character had to die in order to get closure.

"It needed to be one or the other [meaning Laurie or Michael Myers]. Until that menace is gone or you're gone, you're not free," she explained. "You can't live in that limbo. I just wanted to make sure, if we were going to end her story, that we ended it correctly."

The original film's director, John Carpenter, will executive produce and serve as creative consultant on the new movie, which comes from David Gordon Green and Danny McBride. Green will direct.

McBride previously explained his "Halloween" is not a remake, but will "continue the story of Michael Myers in a really grounded way." "And for our mythology, we're focusing mainly in the first two movies and what that sets up and then where the story can go from there," he added at the time.
