Halloween: Jamie Lee Curtis Transforms Into Laurie Strode in a New Photo From the Reboot

Halloween 2018 just got kicked up a notch.

It was recently announced that Jamie Lee Curtis will be reprising the iconic role of Laurie Strode in Halloween, another reboot of the beloved horror franchise due out on Oct. 19, 2018. It's an exciting reveal for one of the first-ever scream queens because truly nothing is scarier than watching her fend off her psychotic, murderous, William Shatner-mask-wearing younger brother with only a wire hanger in the 1978 original. Then again, doesn't Laurie get stabbed by her deranged sibling and thrown to her death in the franchise's eighth movie, Halloween: Resurrection?

According to John Carpenter, who's on board as an executive producer and creative consultant, the reboot will ignore everything after the original film. "It's kind of a . . . I don't know how to describe it. It's almost an alternative reality," he explained to Stereo Gum. "It picks up after the first one and it pretends that none of the others were made. It's gonna be fun. There's a really talented director and it was well-written. I'm impressed."

Regardless of how they handle the storyline, the horror film sees Laurie facing down Michael in one final, bloody confrontation. Curtis is definitely attached as Laurie, and Judy Greer is reportedly in talks to play her daughter, Karen Strode. Jason Blum, of Get Out and Paranormal Activity fame, is also on board as a producer, while David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are in charge of the script (Green is also directing).

In other words? Best. Halloween. EVER. Check out the first few photos from the reboot below.
