Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Jamie Lee Curtis has signed on to star in the next installment in the Halloween film franchise.
"Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode in Halloween Movie, coming to theaters October 19, 2018," Universal Studios Entertainment said on its Facebook page Friday.
No other details about the project were immediately released, but the post did include a photo of Curtis standing outside a house with white-masked, serial killer Michael Myers in the doorway behind her, holding a knife. A jack o'lantern is on the porch by her feet.
"Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween. Release date 10/19/18," Curtis tweeted, alongside the same photo.
Laurie appears in six of the existing 10 Halloween movies. Curtis played the role in four installments from 1978 to 2002 and Scout Taylor-Compton portrayed the character in two reboot features released in 2007 and 2009.
