Will Jamie Lee Curtis Bite The Bullet In The Halloween Sequel?


Well, that was certainly quick.

Only two weeks have passed since Jamie Lee Curtis announced her Halloween return, and already, the actress has wrapped filming on David Gordon Green’s spooky sequel. Via Instagram, Curtis posted a heartfelt message of thanks to the cast and crew at Blumhouse, though her relatively short spell in front of the cameras has raised some concern.

We know she’ll be reprising the iconic role of Laurie Strode (AKA the one true scream queen) come October, who has matured into a doting grandmother since her first run-in with Michael Myers all the way back in 1978. Judy Greer (Ant-Man and the Wasp) and Andi Matichak have been cast as Karen and Allyson Strode, respectively, and while there’s every chance Curtis will return for a possible round of reshoots/pick-ups, fans have interpreted this status report as a potential clue that Laurie will bite the bullet upon returning to Haddonfield.

Via Instagram, she posted the photo seen in the gallery below (which also includes a few other recent set pics) along with the following message:

So sad to leave all my new friends in Charleston. Thanks to @kuduchs for the friendship and morning noon and night caffeination and carbohydrates, @hajsalon for my much-needed wash and trim, @dogwashcharleston for my little dog’s much-needed wash and trim, the stylish folks @hampdenclothing for my new kicks and mostly to everyone @thedewberrycharleston for their hospitality and elegant, comfortable care. #halloweenmovie

It’s impossible to know for sure, of course, as Halloween is still in the midst of filming. But assuming those rumors are true, David Gordon Green’s sequel may well crown Andi Matichak’s Allyson as the new face of Halloween – human face, of course, as Michael Myers is never too far away.

Either way, the forthcoming sequel has all the makings of a generational horror hit, and though some have taken issue with Blumhouse’s decision to bypass all other sequels in the franchise, the creative retcon lends Halloween a relatively blank slate – even if it winds up tweaking the ending to Carpenter’s classic.

Halloween is poised to deliver a blast from the past on October 19th, and we couldn’t be more excited. More on Green’s sequel as it nears the finish line.
