Following the success of 2018’s Halloween movie, Blumhouse announced that two sequels, Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends, were in development to wrap up the story for this recent reboot sequel series.
Now, in an interview with Total Film magazine, Laurie Strode actor Jamie Lee Curtis confirmed that the third instalment will most likely be the final time she reprises the role.
“I would say, given what I know about the next movie, I think it will be the last time that I will play her,” Curtis said. “And I’m not saying something like, ‘Oh, because I die!’ It’s nothing to do with that. I’m talking about emotionally what they have constructed. I think it will be a spectacular way to end this trilogy.”

Curtis has been playing the role of Laurie Strode since 1978 for the original Halloween movie, which was also her feature film debut. She would later reprise the role in 1981’s Halloween II, 1998’s Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, and 2002’s Halloween: Resurrection before returning once again in Blumhouse and Universal’s reboot trilogy.
Minutes after Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer), and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor. But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster. The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all.
Halloween Kills is directed by David Gordon Green from a script by Green and Danny McBride and sees Jamie Lee Curtis (Laurie Strode), Judy Greer (Karen), Andi Matichak (Allyson), Jibrail Nantambu (Julian), Kyle Richards (Lindsey Wallace), Nancy Stephens (Nurse Marion), Charles Cyphers (Sheriff Brackett) and Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney (The Shape) all reprising their roles, while new additions include Anthony Michael Hall (The Dead Zone) as Tommy Doyle and Robert Longstreet (The Haunting of Hill House) as Lonnie Elam.
