David Gordon Green reveals Jamie Lee Curtis’ secret second role in ‘Halloween’

Jamie Lee Curtis, the queen of scream herself, managed to bag two roles in the recent David Gordon Green Halloween. 

Having smashed Box Office sales upon its release last weekend, David Gordon Green’s ‘Halloween‘ reboot is enjoying a surge of excitement as it hits cinemas across the globe. Written by Green, Jeff Fradley, and Danny McBride, Halloween is the eleventh instalment in the Halloween film series and a direct sequel to the 1978 film of the same name.

So far, the film has grossed over $95 million, making it the highest grossing film in the franchise.

Here’s the film’s synopsis:

“It’s been 40 years since Laurie Strode survived a vicious attack from crazed killer Michael Myers on Halloween night. Locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape when his bus transfer goes horribly wrong. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the masked madman returns to Haddonfield, Ill. – but this time, she’s ready for him.”

Now, discussing the film in a new interview with Collider, director Green was drawn on a particular scene which involves a screaming baby as Michael Myers invades a house. At one point, as the baby begins to cry, the killer moves ominously in that direction.

Interrupting, Green said: “By the way, that’s Jamie Lee Curtis’ baby sound,” before adding: “She’s making that sound of the baby. Yes, it’s terrifying in its own right.

Detailing more, the director added: “It was a last minute idea; I mean, why is there a baby crib in the living room? But it was gonna be her husband sleeping on the couch, but then he didn’t show up and we scrambled and put a baby crib in there,” he confessed. “And then, yeah, I thought it was interesting to see one ethical choice that he made in the movie, so that’s the one ethical choice he makes.”
