“I’m 61 and my motto now is: ‘If not now, when, if not me, who?’ I’m excited to have a creative home to explore my own ideas and others. Jason and his team have made me feel welcome. Comet is ready to bring these stories to screen life,”
Jamie Lee Curtis says.
Blumhouse produced the 2018 revamp ofHalloween,which Curtis starred and executive produced; the pic becoming the highest installment ever in the franchise with over $255M WW. The pic, directed by David Gordon Green, also repped the biggest box office debut for a horror movie with a female lead and the biggest opening for a movie with a 55+ female lead. Two additional films have been slated in the franchise —Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends— which are scheduled to be released on Oct. 16 and Oct. 15, 2021 respectively. Curtis also serves as EP on those sequels.
Jason Blum, Blumhouse CEO and Founder had this to say about working with Curtis.
“Jamie is a force of nature and was a real partner on Halloween. So it’s both an honor and incredibly apt that she’s making her first feature film as a director with Mother Nature,”
Theres no question one of the industries original Scream Queens is more than qualified to deliver scares behind the camera. We look forward to her new project. How about you?
