Instead, the idea for this new Halloween came from Danny McBride and filmmaker David Gordon Green, who previously worked together on Pineapple Express and the HBO series Eastbound & Down and Vice Principals.
She shared the first photo from the set and it features her and Green holding a slate used on John Carpenter's original 40 years ago.
Judy Greer will portray Karen Strode, Laurie's daughter, and Andi Matichak will play Allyson Strode, Karen's daughter, and Laurie's granddaughter. "Same slate. Same Laurie", she captioned the pic. McBride and Green wrote the screenplay and Green will direct, but before you go assuming they're making a comedy out of the franchise, know that this is anything but. Happy Halloween 2018 everyone.
You can hold off on purchasing your costumes, pumpkins and candy for several months, but if there is one Halloween-related task you must accomplish today it is checking out Jamie Lee Curtis' Twitter. "See you 10/19/18 "Halloween" movie". Though that wasn't true, she was killed off in Halloween: Resurrection, which debuted back in 2002.

Curtis added an image to the tweet of herself standing on a porch in a light blue button-up top and dark blue jeans, with the horror film's masked antagonist, Michael Myers, lurking behind her with a knife. She also appeared in 1981's "Halloween II" and 1998's "Halloween H20: 20 Years Later".
A plot for the new Halloween has yet to be revealed.
Not much is known about the story for the new "Halloween", other than that Laurie and Michael will be involved. As if that wasn't enough, John Carpenter is involved as a producer and may or may not be providing the music.
The new Halloween film, which could end up being the final one in the franchise, hits theaters on October 19.
