Laurie Strode is coming home.

The buzz around the newest Halloween movie has been building for the past few months now, with the loyal fanbase becoming more (cautiously) optimistic with each news item that gets released. Now comes word from Blumhouse that Halloween heroine Jamie Lee Curtis will be returning to the franchise to go up against Michael Myers one more time.

Both Blumhouse and Curtis took to Twitter on Friday afternoon to make the announcement:

Two additional takeaways from Blumhouse's announcement: it would appear that the film is going simply by the title Halloween (though that may still change); and contrary to earlier reports and crossed-fingers, the film will be released on October 18th, 2018, and not on Halloween 2018.

While specifics of the storyline are still being kept secret, we do know that Halloween will be a direct sequel to Halloween I & II  (which means that Curtis' turn in Halloween: H20 is thankfully no longer canon). You're also going to see a ton less "power-walking" going on:  Michael Myers will be much more grounded in reality this time around (translation: no super or supernatural powers).

Famed horror director John Carpenter is returning to his franchise, excited over the new approach that Green and McBride are taking to the point where he's even considering coming back to score the film:

"David and Danny both came to my office recently with [Blumhouse producer] Jason Blum and shared their vision for the new movie and …wow! They get it. I think you're gonna dig it. They blew me away."

Set to begin filming this fall, the film is being written by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride, with Green directing. Carpenter will executive produce the new film with Malek Akkad producing for Trancas and Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse. Green and McBride will also executive produce under Rough House Pictures.
