Michael Myers returns for the 40th anniversary of thein of the same name. is also back as scream queen Laurie Strode.
The first official trailer is coming out, June 8. A few days in advance, shared the first photos from the movie.
This time, Curtis told, Laurie won’t be “running for her life.” Instead:
“[S]he is well-matched, she is prepared, she is focused. She will be the one people are standing behind when that moment comes, because she’s the one ready.”
Damn right. Apparently Laurie had been, um, vocal about her past with Michael Myers — to the point that no one around her wanted to hear more about it:
“It becomes a little bit ‘The British are coming!’ and everybody just gets tired of it. It’s the girl who cried Michael, and they’re all like, ‘Oh, my God, Laurie, shut the (expletive) up.’ And that’s why I like where we find her.”
The new film includes Laurie’s daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak). They, too, are very aware of her past.
Director David Gordon Green added:
“We’re being very honest and truthful about that, how it would affect the upbringing of her daughter, who has a lot of conflicts because of her mother’s obsession with this incident, and her granddaughter, who’s trying to connect.”
