Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Lourie Strode in a new set photo for the upcoming horror film, Halloween Ends.
Back in 2018, audiences and critics were once again treated to a Michale Myers killing spree with Jamie Lee Curtis returning as franchise heroin Lourie Strode. The Halloween reboot was a big success with a 79% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and earned over 255M worldwide on a $10M budget. Its sequel, Halloween Kills, on the other hand, faced a few additional hurdles than its predecessor.
Halloween Kills was quickly put into development before it was decided to shoot it and its sequel, Halloween Ends back to back. Both films were delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The first of these two was released in October of 2021, earning roughly $100M less than its predecessor, and currently maintains a 40% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Despite all of this, Halloween Ends is currently in production and has been suggested to be the ending of this story. A new set photo from the film gives us our first look at Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode in the sequel. You can see the full image below:
Here is the plot synopsis for Halloween Kills:
