Many fans are understandably excited about David Gordon Green’s upcoming Halloween film and the fact that it is being sold as the direct sequel to John Carpenter’s classic.
And when one reminisces about the original film, next to Carpenter, the person most associated with Halloween is Laurie Strode herself: Jamie Lee Curtis. Curtis announced today via twitter that the production was coming to a close and that all of her scenes have been filmed.

The other cast members pictured in the tweet are Judy Greer who plays Karen Strode, Laurie’s daughter, and Andi Matichak who will portray this version’s “final girl”.
The news that Curtis finds the film “astonishingly scary” is certainly encouraging, but all fans will be able to judge for themselves when the new film is released on October 19th of this year.
