Actress Jamie Lee Curtis has confirmed that filming has begun
for the upcoming "Halloween" movie. She also said that the clapper board from
the original film has been used.
In a post on Twitter, Curtis wrote: "First shot! First day. Same slate. Same Laurie. David Gordon Green directing from his script. Happy Halloween 2018 everyone. See you 10/19/18 'Halloween' movie."
Curtis will once again portray Laurie Strode and will have to try and survive the murderous clutches of Myers, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The 59-year-old actress has reprised her famous role three times since John Carpenter's original in 1981's "Halloween II", 1998's "Halloween H20: 20 Years Later" and 2002's "Halloween: Resurrection", but the new film from Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures will be the final "Halloween".
Curtis shared the news on her Twitter account, uploading a photograph of herself in character, standing outside the infamous house in Haddonfield, Illinois, where many of the horrific events of the first film took place with Myers's white masked face looming behind her in the shadows.
The movie is being created by director David Gordon Green.
