Judy Greer (“Archer,” “Ant-Man,” “War for the Planet of the Apes”) is in talks to play Karen Strode, the daughter of Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode, in the upcoming new entry in the “Halloween” franchise.
Curtis will return to arguably her most iconic role which kicked off her career, with the character coming to a final confrontation with the pale masked Michael Myers.
Though Curtis’ character was unceremoniously killed off in “Halloween: Resurrection” in 2002, the new film will ignore the continuity post-“Halloween 2” in favor of telling its own story.
Original director John Carpenter is said to be heavily involved in the new entry and will executive produce alongside Malek Akkad and Jason Blum. David Gordon Green will direct from a script he co-wrote with Danny McBride. The film opens on October 19th 2018.
