Halloween (2018): Jamie Lee Curtis is heading back to Haddonfield!

Over the course of the film series, Curtis did return for Halloween II, when we find out that she is actually Michael's long-lost sister, hence his fixation on her.

Curtis, 58, will once again play Laurie Strode, the babysitter who faced the deadly hockey-masked serial killer Michael Myers in John Carpenter's 1978 horror "Halloween".

Curtis took to her Twitter account this afternoon to say, "Same porch". Same clothes. Same issues. There has been ample talk of another Halloween movie for years, and now it looks like it's finally going to happen next year - just in time for the original's fortieth anniversary.

The announcement is a little confusing, considering Curtis' character seemingly died in "Halloween: Resurrection". Plus, this new installment will have to answer a lot of questions (cuz like, um, isn't Michael Myers totally already dead?). Why can't Laurie be, as well? Jason Blum, producer of recent horror hits Get Out and The Purge and the Paranormal Activity franchises, and Malek Akkad of Trancas International Films, which has produced the Halloween series since the beginning, will produce the new movie, which was written by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride.

Well, it sure is a freaky Friday. By the time this new Halloween reboot arrives in theaters, it will have been 20 years since that movie and 40 years since the franchise made its debut.

Jamie Lee first represented the character, Laurie, in the original slasher film released in 1978.

She also had an uncredited voice role for the third Halloween III: Season of the Witch.

Of course, we'll have to wait until next October to find out for sure, or at least for the first trailer to drop so we can unfairly start speculating.
