Jamie Lee Curtis and Michael Myers are back in first trailer for Halloween reboot
Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode in the new Halloween reboot. This new film will take 40 years after she and Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) had it out with the psychopathic masked murderer Michael Myers.
“For a lot of people, out of sight, out of mind,” Curtis said in an interview for Entertainment Weekly when they visited her on set earlier this year. “For her, out of sight, out of her mind. Michael Myers is her sole focus. Because she [knows], the same way Loomis knew, that Michael Myers is a threat — and no one else seems to take him so.”
Laurie remains a traumatized woman, as seen in the new trailer, but Curtis seems to be having a blast playing Strode in the new film which will act as if the many previous sequels to John Carpenter’s 1978 horror classic never existed.
“The vibe here is the same vibe as 40 years ago,” Curtis told Entertainment Weekly. “David Gordon Green and [co-writers] Danny McBride and [Jeff Fradley] and their cameraman and their sound mixer are all best friends. Everyone who’s come here has come here to honor Halloween 1978. The prop master, Mick Flowers, did The Revenant. He did the f—ing Revenant! Do you know what I’m saying?”
This new Halloween also stars Judy Greer, Will Patton and Nick Castle (who played Myers back in the 1978 version), among many others.
