She's been back in the franchise before, but Jamie Lee Curtis is looking to have one final encounter with Michael Myers, returning as Laurie Strode for the new sequel to Halloween.

Billed by Blumhouse Productions and Universal as the "final" Halloween (we'll see if that sticks), the new horror comes from director David Gordon Green, who wrote the script alongside Danny McBride. The original film's writer/director John Carpenter is aboard as executive producer and will also offer his deep knowledge of Myers and co. as a consultant.

Little else is known about what Green and McBride aim to do with the movie, though McBride has promised that it won't be a comedy horror or reboot and aims to bring the scares. Curtis' Strode will once again be facing the killer who nearly ended her life decades ago. The latest movie has a US release date set for 19 October next year, and it'll likely be out around the same time in the UK.
