Jamie Lee Curtis made horror fans everywhere thrilled beyond belief when she returned to her iconic role of Laurie Strode for 2018’s Halloween. And before she returns to play the role once again this fall, she and several of her castmates are revisiting the most recent sequel/reboot with a special Twitter Watch Party. If you’re anything like me, then this news already has you hearing John Carpenter’s iconic music in your head.
Via Bloody-Disgusting, we’ve learned that this Saturday, May 16, Curtis will be joined by the film’s director David Gordon Green, along with producer and cinema legend John Carpenter, the man who got this whole ball rolling. Blumhouse’s very own Jason Blum will be also on hand, as will Judy Greer and both actors who play “the Shape,” James Jude Courtney and Nick Castle. All one has to do is follow and use #HalloweenAtHome to join in the sure-to-be bloody good time.
This Watch Party will be perfect preparation, as Jamie Lee Curtis, David Gordon Green and John Carpenter are all scheduled to return for two back-to-back sequels, with Halloween Kills hitting theaters this fall first. This initial follow up to the 2018 film is set to release on October 16, 2020. But of course, that all may change depending on what form the COVID-19 crisis takes later in the year. The third part of this modern Michael Myers trilogy is Halloween Ends, which is currently aiming at an October 1, 2021, release date.
Jamie Lee Curtis is always a blast to listen to talk about her iconic role, and always has amusing anecdotes to share about being the world’s most iconic Scream Queen. or years, John Carpenter had little to nothing to do with the franchise he created. But now he’s back in the fold as a producer and composer. So it should be fascinating to hear what he has to say about returning to the world of Michael Myers after so long. Here’s hoping some other surprise Halloween alumni join in the fun as well.
