Danielle Harris Tried to Get Jamie Lloyd into New Halloween Movie

One of the top films all of us are looking forward to the most here at Dread Central is Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel/reboot thing to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

The new Halloween (2018) film is written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green and is all set to be directed by Green this year. Recently we learned that original Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis was going to be returning to the new film.

Not only that, but Curtis’ classic character Laurie Strode would have a daughter… played by Judy Greer. But what about Danielle Harris?

After all, Harris was the star of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Curse of Michael Myers. Let alone, she had a starring role in both Rob Zombie’s remake and it’s sequel. So how about the new film?

Turns out Harris tried to get her character Jamie Llyod (aka the daughter of Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode) from Halloween 4 and 5 into the new film… but she was turned down by Blumhouse and the new creative team. That sucks.

Harris was pretty bummed about the whole deal and took to Facebook recently to clear the air. You can check out quotes from her video, along with the video itself, below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know how much you would have liked to see Harris return to Halloween in the comments below or on social media!

“What I am bummed about is… [Laurie] has a daughter,” Harris says. “I was okay with it when she had a son… but they’re saying it’s the last one and… she has a daughter. And it’s not Jamie. It’s just kind of a bummer, I guess. I think somebody had said, it wouldn’t have hurt the movie to have Jamie reunited with [Laurie]. But that didn’t happen.”

“We did put in a call, thought it’d be kinda cool even just to have a little flashback…” She continues. “They were not interested. So. I tried.”

Blumhouse’s Halloween hits theaters October 19, 2018.

    It would of been nice if they had added Jaime Lloyd character into the new movie. Halloween 4 was one of my favorite from the franchise besides the original Halloween. Jaime (Danielle Harris role played a huge role in the halloween franchise besides Laurie Strode.Its pretty sad they completely ignore or erase her character from the new movie. They could of added her into the plot and the movie still would of been as good as it was. And who ever says or comments shes being stubborn or blah blah you must mot be a Halloween fan. The Halloween franchise is just as iconic as the Night mare on elm street and Friday the 13th. And again Jaime character was an great one for the franchise.

    Laurie died in Resurrection and still brought her back.

    When will Danielle Harris get it through her stubborn head? She had her fun with Halloween 4 and 5. Plus Jamie Lloyd wouldnt have worked out well in the new Halloween sequel reboot since technically Jamie wouldnt have been born maybe since Laurie probably didnt get to hook up with Jimmy, maybe. But then Rachel would still probably be alive and still deal with her love life with Brady and Meeker’s daughter
