The photo features Curtis with shoulder length hair and rimless glasses. She’s wearing a chambray button-up with belted brown pants, a jacket and hiking boots.
The caption on both Instagram and Twitter reads, “First shot. @halloweenmovie Halloween 40 years later. Same slate. Same Laurie. David Gordon Green directing from his script. Happy Halloween 2018 everyone. See you all 10/19/18 #halloweenmovie”
Fans were quick to repost side-by-side photos of Curtis as her character from 1978 and the present.
Some commented with gifs and video clips from the original movie.
“Every day you tweet a pic from set it legit makes my day! Love you! So happy! Can’t wait!” one fan commented.
“I AM A GROWN MAN WHO JUST SQUEALED WHEN I SAW THIS TWEET!” posted another.
Also on Tuesday, actor Miles Robbins posted a photo on Instagram from the set. The photo also features Virginia Gardner, Andi Matichak and Green creepily holding hands in a yard filled with Halloween decorations (and movie crew members).
The movie is set to be in theaters Oct. 19. It is expected to be filming in South Carolina for the next month.
