It was only a couple of weeks ago that the returning Laurie Strode shared her first picture from that famous Haddonfield porch. Now Jamie Lee Curtis has posted the following image that appears to suggest her time on the Halloween sequel is at an end.
Does this mean that the original scream queen’s role is merely a cameo, or just that the production is shooting at a rapid pace and her scenes are in the can? Here’s hoping it’s the latter.
So sad to leave all my new friends in Charleston. Thanks to @kuduchs for the friendship and morning noon and night caffeination and carbohydrates, @hajsalon for my much-needed wash and trim, @dogwashcharleston for my little dog’s much-needed wash and trim, the stylish folks @hampdenclothing for my new kicks and mostly to everyone @thedewberrycharleston for their hospitality and elegant, comfortable care. #halloweenmovie @halloweenmovie
