In 2018, the horror franchise was rebooted by Blumhouse, with a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 film. It featured Curtis’ return as Laurie Strode after 16 years since appearing in Rick Rosenthal’s Halloween: Resurrection. The 2018 Halloween film had earned positive reviews from critics and fans, with a worldwide gross of over $250 million. Because of this, the studio immediately ordered two sequels, Halloween Kills, and Halloween Ends.
