Jamie Lee Curtis has an interesting take on directing another Halloween movie

Jamie Lee Curtis knows better than anyone to be wary of something that seems kaput. Ask the unassailable Michael Myers. Back in 2017, the last thing Curtis was thinking about was doing another “Halloween.” But, she told SFX, her pal Jake Gyllenhaal called her and made her an offer she couldn’t refuse. “I picked up the phone and he said, ‘Hey Jame, my friend David Gordon Green…would like to talk to you about a Halloween movie'” (via GamesRadar+).

Five years later, Curtis says the trilogy changed his creative and professional life. “I now have a partnership with Jason Blum at Blumhouse, I have a production company, I wrote a horror movie that I’m going to direct, I produce TV series, I buy books. All that was the last thing I thought I would do it five years ago.” Curtis attributes the turn of events to his “never say never” attitude. If that attitude holds, fans can’t rule out the eventual resuscitation of the beloved franchise.

Curtis’ proactive spirit should embolden cynical “Halloween” fans who anticipate that Michael Myers will persist despite the promise of the franchise’s conclusion. Even David Gordon Green admits “Halloween” could go on, with or without Laurie Strode. “You can kill all the characters and still find a way to continue their stories,” he told SFX. “So as long as they’re successful…the stories will find ways to go on, I’m sure.”
