Curtis shared the first image from the new movie on Twitter, which not only includes her in a costume similar to Laurie's from the original movie-because denim never goes out of style-but director David Gordon Green has an important piece of movie history in his hands. And perhaps even cooler than bringing back the original actor behind The Shape, director David Gordon Green is also using John Carpenter's original clapboard from the first movie back in 1978. In those photos, Curtis was still sporting her usual short haircut along with the threads Laurie Strode wore back in 1978 when Michael Myers chased after her for the first time. She later resurfaced in Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, and was last seen in Halloween: Resurrection. "Same slate. Same Laurie", Curtis writes.
The new Halloween film is cowritten by Green and Danny McBride and is indeed released October 19.

You can hold off on purchasing your costumes, pumpkins and candy for several months, but if there is one Halloween-related task you must accomplish today it is checking out Jamie Lee Curtis' Twitter. She first appeared as the sister of Michael Myers in the original, followed by Halloween II in 1981.
Strode will have her final confrontation with the masked figure who has haunted her since she barely escaped his killing spree four decades ago.
Carpenter said he would act as executive producer and 'consult and offer [his] advice and feedback as needed'.
"First shot. Halloween 40 years later".
