The revived Halloween franchise from Blumhouse is back and it has two more movies to offer fans of the slasher series. Its star Jamie Lee Curtis shared what to expect from what’s to come.
Halloween kills and Halloween Ends are the two installments currently underway. The two movies are slated for an October and October 2021 premiere respectively. While the second installment of the trilogy is nearing its production, Curtis dished details while speaking to online outlet Bloomberg.
The actress shared her excitement over reprising her character Laurie Strode which gives her a chance to delve deep into the character’s trauma.
“The trauma that occurs for this character for forty years, I felt was very important that David understood that and was really giving Laurie great honor to acknowledge that her experience of her life was very challenged,” Curtis said.
Curtis went on to explain that Halloween Kills will “unpack the first movie” and show how the story’s 1978 murders affected the lives of characters in its wake. As for Halloween Ends, Curtis says the film will be an in-depth examination of how the topic of violence has cemented itself as a cultural phenomenon. The actress says director David Gordon Green will end the trilogy in a “sensational” way.
The Hollywood actress recently received recognition as Best Actress at the Saturn Awards for her reprisal of Laurie Strode in 2018’s Halloween. Coincidentally, the original 1978 film of the same title was Curtis’ feature film debut in acting. She has since appeared in a total of seven installments in the movie franchise.
