One of the best aspects of 2018’s Halloween reboot was that it brought back Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, one of the original scream queens, centering her as the protagonist of the film. That will not be the case in the film’s followup, Halloween Kills.
According to David Gordon Green, cowriter and director of this film trilogy, while Laurie will still be the “emotional core” of the film, it will be Allyson, Laurie’s granddaughter, who will take on more of a leadership role. Additionally, there will be a lot more focus on the town of Haddonfield reacting to yet another influx of violence and child death in their community.
“If the first film was somewhat retelling the origin of Meyers and getting us up to speed with where Laurie had been all those years, then part two is about the outrage of Haddonfield,” Green told Total Film. “Mob Rules was our working title for the film. It’s about a community that’s united by outrage, and divided in how to deal with evil.”
According to Green, a lot of Laurie’s story will be her dealing with the injuries from the first film, while the other women in the family deal with the aftermath.
