Jamie Lee Curtis returning to the Halloween franchise in 2018’s Halloween was something that excited fans of this horror film series. From the reviews, we can see that she is being lauded as being one of the best things about this movie and, in a roundtable interview at a press day in Los Angeles, Jamie Lee Curtis had the chance to speak about Halloween.
This is what Jamie Lee Curtis had to say on the reaction she had when she was coming back to play Laurie Strode again in Halloween:
“That was a call from Jake Gyllenhaal, who had worked with David and said, ‘My friend David, who I love and had a really good experience with, wants to talk to you about a thing. You’ve gotta call David.’ So, we spoke, and he sent me the script. I read it, and I called him that day.”
“The two things that popped in to my mind, right when I read it, and I read it on vacation, was that there was a scene where Allyson went on a run in the neighborhood and then she went into her house to get ready for school, and she opened the closet door.”
“It’s not in the movie, but that was on page 2, and I thought, ‘Oh, that’s beautiful.’ Forty years ago, I ended in that closet, and now, here was my granddaughter, opening the closet and getting ready for school, to go on with her day.”
“I thought that was beautiful. I thought the journalists were great, and that they were British was just perfect. Right away I was like, ‘Okay, this is fantastic.’ I finished it and thought it was great.”
