It was not until the 1981 sequel - Halloween II - that Curtis's character Laurie Strode was revealed to be the younger sister of Myers, a plot twist that has kept the two characters connected for decades since.

According to Us Weekly, the newest Halloween film will be directed by David Gordon Green who will also co-write the script with his fellow collaborator, Danny McBride. Same issues. 40 years later.

When it comes to the Halloween movies, pretty much everyone can agree on two things: the original, 1978 movie directed by John Carpenter is unbelievable, and the 1981 sequel that Carpenter wrote and produced is mostly good.

The actress captioned a photo of herself on the porch of the classic house where all of the Michael Myers drama first began. "Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween", Curtis added in a tweet. The man himself, John Carpenter, will executive-produce and serve as a creative consultant, and said at the time the project was announced that he might even do the music for it: "Maybe".

'Halloween' Movie: Jamie Lee Curtis Set to Return To Her Iconic Role As Laurie Strode

Jamie Lee Curtis is making a return to the horror film franchise "Halloween", which is being rebooted as the final film of the series. "In terms of the sequels, I think I probably lucked out and got the best I can".

Curtis first played Laurie in the original 1978 slasher film, which was also her debut on the big screen.

Laurie's inclusion is a bit of a surprise since she was seemingly killed off in 2002's "Halloween: Resurrection". Having Jamie Lee Curtis come back is certainly a great place to start.

Halloween hits theaters October 19, 2018.
