This will be a fight to the finish…with a twist.
Halloween Ends–the final chapter in the iconic horror saga–is only a month away now, and Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis is fanning the flames even more as the fateful day approaches.
The much-anticipated film–landing in theaters and on Peacock Oct. 14–will find Laurie Strode and Michael Myers locked in mortal combat for the last (?) time, and Curtis this week shed some light on why this bloody battle will be a bit different, according to a report on Collider.
While acknowledging that the upcoming film will be “a final reckoning between Laurie and Michael,” Curtis said the 2018 and 2021 movies were “about a woman who was prepared for Michael–every day of her life, since she was 17 years old. This is a movie where she’s actually moved on–Laurie doesn’t see Michael coming.”
So, this battle with Michael “is much more violent, unexpected and like a street brawl,” Curtis said, adding that there’s “this other character that she’s concerned about–and she’s not thinking about Michael. And then, Michael comes back. So the fight was unexpected.” Predictably, Curtis gave no more insight into this “other character”. And the movie is still a month away…
Halloween Ends–directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay he wrote with Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier–follows Laurie Strode (Curtis), who’s living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) as she finishes her memoir, according to the synopsis.
But, when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell), is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it starts “a cascade of violence and terror that forces Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control.”
The film also stars James Jude Courtney, Will Patton, Kyle Richards, Omar Dorsey, Michael O’Leary and Nick Castle.
