L.L.'s Turn In "Halloween" Will Arrive Soon

L.L. Cool J will be on movie screens sooner than expected in "Halloween H20," the latest in the lengthy slasher series.

The film, which also features original "Halloween" star Jamie Lee Curtis returning to her breakthrough role, was originally supposed to open in Halloween, but the film has now been bumped up to August 5.

As we previously reported (see L.L. Cool J Dresses Up For Next 'Halloween'"), the film, the latest slash-fest from the "Scream" peddlers at Dimension Films, marks the 20th anniversary of the original, and features L.L. as a struggling novelist who is moonlighting as a security guard.
