Halloween Ends is Jamie Lee Curtis’ eighth appearance as Laurie Strode in the Halloween franchise, and it is also believed to be her final, with Jimmy Kimmel attempting to hold the actor to those statements by making her to sign a contract agreeing to that deal.
The gesture, rather than constituting a legal agreement, was made in fun, according to the Haddonfield, Illinois police department.
However, with Curtis frequently declaring that this would be her final appearance as Laurie Strode, we believe she didn’t even need the contract to agree to leave the franchise forever. On October 14th, Halloween Ends will be released in cinemas and on Peacock.
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host presented Curtis with the contract, which read, “I declare this is my last Halloween movie. I, Jamie Lee Curtis, queen of scream, daughter of Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis, mother of Lindsay Lohan. Hereby sweareth under penalty of perjury, that Halloween Ends will be the last Halloween movie I will ever appear in. For all time, across all sequels, and multiverses. Enforceable by the Police Department of Haddonfield, Illinois. May God have mercy on all of us.”
Curtis then joked, “I should call my lawyer first before I sign anything,” but then went ahead and signed anyway.
