Jamie Lee Curtis on Friday revealed she’ll be reprising her role in a reboot of the horror movie Halloween, which will be released nearly 40 years to the day the original film directed by John Carpenter hit theaters.
Curtis added an image to the tweet of herself standing on a porch in a light blue button-up top and dark blue jeans, with the horror film’s masked antagonist, Michael Myers, lurking behind her with a knife.
Curtis has played the role in a number of sequels throughout the years, including 1981’s Halloween II, 1998’s Halloween H20: 20 Years Later and the 2002 film Halloween: Resurrection.
Carpenter in February revealed that the film was in the works, taking to Facebook to tell fans, ‘So you say you want a Revolution? You want to shake things up and bring back Halloween and make it rock again? Well so do I.’.
With horror movies a hot property thanks to It’s smashing success, the box office prospects for the film look strong, as the 10 films in the franchise have racked up nearly $400 million in international box office receipts.
The original film was a smashing success, as iMDb reports it set a record for independent films at the time, making $47 million off a budget of $300,000.
The film is set to hit theaters October 19th, 2018..
