Jamie Lee Curtis Opens Up About How Jake Gyllenhaal Apparently Facilitated The Creation Of The New 'Halloween' Movies

A few years back, when David Gordon Green revived the dormant "Halloween" franchise with original Final Girl Jamie Lee Curtis back in the lead role, it felt like the horror gods were trying to right several wrongs that had occurred inside of that franchise. The original John Carpenter "Halloween" is widely considered to be one of the best horror movies ever made. But lame sequels had watered down the reputation of the "Halloween" series (leading to some of our writers losing interest in the series completely), and it was time for Curtis’s Laurie Strode to step in and set things right. Naturally, Curtis and Carpenter are key figures in reviving the "Halloween" series, but did you also know that Jake Gyllenhaal played a significant role?

As it turns out, Jake Gyllenhaal was the one who put Jamie Lee Curtis in touch with David Gordon Green in the first place. The filmmaker had already established himself through well-received dramas (All the Real Girls) and comedies (Your Highness), but had a concept for a "Halloween" movie that he wanted to share. And, as Jamie Lee Curtis explains it to SFX Magazine (via GamesRadar), it was Gyllenhall who facilitated the conversation.
