Jamie Lee Curtis and Blumhouse are no strangers to one another, having worked together in recent years bringing Laurie Strode back to the big screen in the new Halloween films, and Deadline now reports Curtis has signed a three-year, first look deal via her company, Comet Pictures, with Blumhouse for both film and television.
Their first collaboration is the horror film, Mother Nature, which is centered around climate change. Curtis will direct the film that Russell Goldman and she are writing together.
"I’m 61 and my motto now is: ‘If not now, when, if not me, who?' I’m excited to have a creative home to explore my own ideas and others. Jason [Blum] and his team have made me feel welcome. Comet is ready to bring these stories to screen life," said Curtis.
Curtis' previous directing credits include episodes of "Scream Queens" and "Anything But Love".
It was recently announced that Curtis will star in, direct and executive produce, How We Sleep at Night: The Sara Cunningham Story for Lifetime. The film is a passion project for Curtis who optioned the rights to Cunningham’s memoir last year.
