The first look at Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode on the set of Halloween Ends has been revealed. Curtis has played Strode since John Carpenter’s original Halloween in 1978, appearing again for the sequel, Halloween II in 1981, then again for Halloween H20 in 1998, and in Halloween: Resurrection in 2002, which saw Strode killed off. However, director David Gordon Green reset the franchise with 2018’s Halloween, a direct sequel to the original film, which set up a new trilogy for the franchise, allowing Strode’s story to continue.
Last year saw the release of the second part of the new trilogy, Halloween Kills, which saw Strode mostly laid up in the hospital dealing with her wounds accrued from the first film. Halloween Ends, the final chapter of the new trilogy, brings Strode back to continue her journey in battling The Shape, aka Michael Myers, the masked serial killer who has haunted her since 1978. Green is again directing and brings back trilogy cast members Curtis, Andi Matichak, Kyle Richards, and James Jude Courtney and Nick Castle as Myers.
Filming on Halloween Ends has commenced and today the first look at Curtis as Laurie Strode in the final chapter has been revealed (via Cris Parker). Curtis is in a new outfit and looking fairly healthy, overall, suggesting that Halloween Ends will be taking place at least a short while after the events of the first two films in the trilogy. Curtis can be seen facing what appears to be a house in a residential area with a police car nearby, which could mean any number of things. Take a look at the set photos below:
Curtis has remained steadily busy since returning to the franchise. The actress starred in director Rian Johnson’s hit whodunit Knives Out in 2019 and will next be seen in the fantasy/adventure film Everything Everywhere All at Once with Michelle Yeoh. Curtis also recently wrapped the Eli Roth-directed adaptation of the popular video game series Borderlands, taking on the role of Tannis.
Both Halloween and Halloween Kills were box office successes, reinvigorating the long-running franchise with the same type of suspense and nostalgia that made the original so compelling. Some fans had misgivings about the direction of the new trilogy, however, and much is riding on the final chapter sticking the landing to make it a well-rounded effort with a satisfying conclusion. Final chapters are always difficult, but there’s no doubt that the hype to see how Halloween Ends is high.
