More than 40 years ago Jamie Lee Curtis she played a role that would eventually become part of the English cinematic idiom: “the final girl”. It seems the moniker rings truer now than ever because things have come to an end, says the actress Halloween is over it will be the last time he plays his role, Laurie Strode.
Last night on ABC sites Jimmy Kimmel Live the 63-year-old actress signed a mockumentary that essentially said she would never appear anywhere else. Halloween film again.
The humorous oath says:
Me, Jamie Lee Curtis, scream queen, daughter of Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis, mother of Lindsay Lohan. I hereby swear, under penalty of perjury, that HALLOWEEN ENDS (2022) will be the last Halloween movie I ever appear in. For all time, in all sequels and multiverses. Applicable by the Haddonfield, Illinois Police Department. God have mercy on us all. Baba booey.
Even before her appearance on the talk show, the star’s hands, feet and signature were honored with a seat in front of him. TCL Chinese Theatre. Her work spans every genre of film, from romance to action to drama. But her legacy is firmly planted in the horror genre, playing the haunted nanny in the Halloween franchise.
Although Curtis appeared in several of the proper sequels to the series, the Blumhouse The retcon version is basically her character’s story, picking up after the first one. In her interview with Kimmel, when asked if this would be her last film in any capacity, including a “multiverse,” Curtis, pen in hand, said yes, and with a “definite flourish” puts Laurie behind her.
She then signed the contract. Of course, whether this deal is legally binding or not remains to be seen, but the star seemed pretty confident of closing the deal.
Halloween is over will be released in theaters and Peacock on October 14.
