Jamie Lee Curtis is on the brink of bid farewell to the Halloween franchise and is attempting to persuade the remainder of us that that is really the ultimate entry within the collection. While I imagine that she is finished, I’m not satisfied that we’ll by no means get one other Halloween film. I imply, come on, they haven’t let it go for the previous 40 years, will we imagine that it’s really over?
At New York Comic Con this previous weekend, Curtis spoke in regards to the finish of the franchise. “I’m ready to end it, but I’m going to miss you all so much.” she stated throughout the Halloween panel, which was moderated by Drew Barrymore. “Endings are a b***h, but so is Laurie Strode.”
It was fairly an emotional second as Curtis has been enjoying the function of Laurie Strode for almost 40 years, on and off. It’s not straightforward to say goodbye and stroll away from a task that you simply’ve held near you for therefore lengthy. I’m undecided how this franchise would look with out her!
Jamie Lee Curtis says goodbye to the Halloween franchise
Halloween Ends will choose up about 4 years after final yr’s Halloween Kills, throughout which Laurie’s daughter Karen (Judy Greer) died in a really dramatic vogue. In the brand new film, Laurie’s granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) is writing a memoir, and Michael Myers has been MIA because the final time he went on a killing rampage.
Curtis shared that Laurie will likely be in a distinct mindset throughout this remaining film as a result of she’s lastly completed one thing she’s by no means completed earlier than: remedy!
“She’s gotten grief therapy, so she’s not able to heal fully, but she’s able to live alongside her grief now. It doesn’t consume her, so maybe for a second, you get this idea that she’s going to be okay,” Curtis stated. Interestingly sufficient, she additionally revealed that in Halloween Ends, Laurie will discover herself being an object of ridicule from different residents of Haddonfield. They’re over it, they usually blame Laurie for all of the dying and homicide their city has needed to face.
We’ll have to attend and see how this franchise goes to “end,” however I’m wanting ahead to Jamie Lee Curtis’ remaining hurrah as Laurie Strode. It’s going to be powerful to say goodbye!
