Jamie Lee Curtis: Never Say “Never” To Another ‘Halloween’

by Thomas Tuna

Will it ever really end?

Jamie Lee Curtis–the Scream Queen, the Ultimate Final Girl–will battle one last time with Michael Myers next week in Halloween Ends. Or will she?

Halloween Ends–billed as the final chapter in the iconic horror franchise–may not (in the best of all worlds) be the last time fans see Laurie Strode on the big screen. Curtis herself is not ruling that out.

The beloved actor–in a recent interview with SFX–said she received a phone call out of the blue from Jake Gyllenhaal back in 2017 during which he said, “Hey Jamie, my friend David Gordon Green would like to talk to you about a Halloween movie.”

Curtis admitted “the last thing I thought five years ago is that I would be doing a Halloween movie, and here I am–having now completed three of them with a fantastic, creative group of people.”

That experience, she added, “has not only been satisfying for me personally and creatively, but it has launched me into a whole other world. I have a creative life now. I have a production company, I’ve written a horror film that I will direct, I am producing a TV series.”

So, Curtis said–addressing whether she would (or could) ever return as Laurie Strode in another Halloween film–“to say never is stupid.”

Halloween Ends–directed by Green from a screenplay he wrote with Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier–finds Laurie polishing up her memoir while living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak).

But a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell), is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, resulting in “violence and terror that forces Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control,” according to the synopsis.

The film–which hits theaters and Peacock Oct. 14–also stars James Jude Courtney as Myers, Will Patton, Kyle Richards, Omar Dorsey, Michael O’Leary and Nick Castle.
