NEW YORK — Jamie Lee Curtis has agreed to a rematch with her oldest foe.
Thesp has committed to topline Dimension Films’ “Halloween: The Homecoming,” volume eight in the ongoing saga of misanthropic mental patient Michael Myers.
This time around, the mayhem turns on an Internet entrepreneur’s plan to stage a live Webcast from the old Myers home in Haddonfield, Calif.
Curtis made her feature film debut in the first “Halloween” in 1978. Dimension picked up worldwide rights to the franchise in 1993 and pumped new blood into the series with 1999’s “Halloween: H20,” which grossed $55 million.
Rick Rosenthal, who helmed “Halloween II,” will direct the pic from a script by Larry Brand and Sean Hood.
Pic will be exec produced by Moustapha Akkad of Nightfall Prods., an exec producer of the original “Halloween” who’s had a hand in every sequel to date.
Paul Freeman will produce the pic, which begins lensing Monday in Vancouver.
