The "Halloween" reboot will bring back a very familiar face: Jamie Lee Curtis.
The original Scream Queen who starred in the 1978 original and several sequels, is returning to her roots as heroine Laurie Strode, sister of Michael Myers.

Laurie's inclusion is a bit of a surprise since she was seemingly killed off in 2002's "Halloween: Resurrection." Then, the franchise was rebooted by director Rob Zombie and star Scout Taylor-Compton as Laurie in the 2007 "Halloween" and its sequel.
Well, everything is getting rebooted again (this time under director David Gordon Green), and Curtis is back as Laurie, because time is a flat circle.
In fact, co-writer Danny McBride (yeah, the "Eastbound & Down" and "Vice Principals" guy) said that he and Green are just ignoring all of the movies except for the first two. "
"It's not a remake," he told CinemaBlend. "It's gonna continue the story of Michael Myers in a really grounded way. And for our mythology, we're focusing mainly in the first two movies and what that sets up and then where the story can go from there."
Curtis hinted that this is her last go-around as Laurie, when she shared the same photo on her Twitter with the caption "Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween."
"Halloween" is slated for release Oct. 19, 2018.
