After the success of 2018 Halloween movie, Blumhouse announced that two sequels, Halloween kills and Halloween ends, were in development to wrap up the story for this recent reboot sequel series.
Now, in an interview with Total Film MagazineLaurie Strode actor Jamie Lee Curtis confirmed that the third episode will most likely be the last time she reprises the role.
“I’d say, given what I know about the next movie, I think it’s going to be the last time I’ll be playing her,” Curtis said. “And I don’t say something like, ‘Oh, because I’m dying!’ It has nothing to do with that. I’m talking about emotionally what they’ve built. I think it will be a spectacular way to end this trilogy.”
