It may be Halloween 2017, but many horror fans are already looking forward to next fall when Laurie Strode and Michael Myers have one final confrontation in the new Halloween movie. To celebrate the big "31" on the calendar and look ahead to next year's autumn, Jamie Lee Curtis shared a new photo of her and Michael Myers.

Posted on Curtis' Twitter account with the caption "SOME WOUNDS NEVER HEAL, Michael & I will see you all next Halloween 10/19/18," the new photo features Laurie, The Shape, and a recreation of the shoulder wound Laurie got from her encounter with Michael Myers on Halloween night in 1978.

Slated for an October 19th, 2018 release, the new Halloween movie will feature the return of Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, who will have her "final confrontation with Michael Myers." Judy Greer is also in talks to play Laurie's daughter, Karen, in the new film (if the sequels are in a separate timeline from the new movie, it's likely that Laurie's daughter, Jamie, and son, John, won't factor into the new story).

According to comments made by John Carpenter, who will executive produce the new Halloween movie and potentially provide the score, the new Halloween movie written by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride will not reference the sequels.

Interestingly enough, Zac Efron also shared a photo of himself with Jamie Lee Curtis (see below) today on Twitter with the caption "On Michael Myers patrol." It's not yet known if Efron will be joining the cast of the new Halloween movie, and it's uncertain how recent Efron's photo is. Filming on the new Halloween movie is expected to get underway in Charleston, South Carolina in November, and we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed. In the meantime, here's the official press release with full details:

"Universal Pictures will release Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax’s HALLOWEEN on Friday, October 19, 2018.

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

Master of horror John Carpenter will executive produce and serve as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.

HALLOWEEN will be produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the HALLOWEEN series since its inception. Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.

HALLOWEEN will be distributed worldwide by Universal Pictures."
