Jamie Lee Curtis, one of our first and most iconic Final Girl, is coming back to Halloween, the franchise that made her a superstar.
Blumhouse, who is in charge of the property this time around, tweeted this great photo today:

This iteration of the Michael Myers story will be David Gordon-Green, comedy director responsible for Pineapple Express and Eastbound and Down, will direct. His partner in crime, Danny McBride, has co-written the screenplay with him.
In case you’re a little wary of these two in charge of rebooting a franchise that has continuously been driven into the ground over decades, John Carpenter popped up on his Facebook page to assuage any doubts:
David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are joining the project to complete the creative team. David and Danny will write the script together and David will direct. I will continue in my executive producer role to consult and offer my advice and feedback as needed.
David and Danny both came to my office recently with 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.
And now, here is Jamie Lee Curtis, stoking those nostalgic fires even more. This new Halloween will hit theaters October 19 next year. Get hyped.
