It’s no surprise this year belonged to Halloween, and even though we don’t know whether or not there will be a sequel, Jamie Lee Curtis says she’s on board if there is.
Curtis created the character Laurie Strode in 1978 in the original and has reprised it four times, could there be a fifth?
“I have no idea at this point, today, I have no idea,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “I would make an assumption that, if David Gordon Green has a story to tell, that the people involved with the movie would encourage him to tell it. [Laughs] I haven’t been told whether or not he has a story to tell and whether or not he would include Laurie Strode in the telling. Really, time will tell. I know David is a busy guy.”
Even though some loved the recent installation, some weren’t so pleased creating a polarity within the fandom which may determine if a sequel is made or not. If we go on box office numbers (studios often do) then the answer is most likely yes.
“I’d be happy to do it, sure,” said Curtis. “This was an extraordinary experience. David was a fantastic director, writer, but obviously this 2018, 40th anniversary, was Laurie’s story, and obviously, there are now other people’s stories that would need to get told. But Laurie’s story was told beautifully this year, and I would have no way of knowing how they would incorporate her into future.”
Halloween will be released on Digital and via the streaming platform Movies Anywhere on Dec. 28, and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand on Jan. 15.
