“Laurie/Jamie, we’re the same thing after 43 years,” said Jamie Lee Curtis as she greeted the Venice Fest press corps today, September 8, 2021.

In town to receive a Lifetime Achievement Golden Lion as well as to world premiere Halloween Kills, the actress discussed playing Laurie Strode for more than four decades, what to expect from the trilogy’s ultimate conclusion and her longevity with horror: “If you really boiled it down, the thing that made me successful in this genre is that I scare easily and naturally… I do not like to be frightened.”

Halloween Kills is David Gordon Green’s follow-up to 2018’s hit Halloween, which saw Curtis reprise her iconic role as Laurie Strode and took over $250M worldwide to become the highest-grossing chapter in the franchise.

Production is soon to begin on Halloween Ends, which will close out the series; Curtis revealed she had just read the script on the plane over to Italy and “did not sleep” afterwards.
