Icons of Fright sprach kürzlich mit Rob Zombie über "Halloween 2", in dem Laurie Strode im Mittelpunkt stehen soll...
Bei STYD kann man einen Blick auf die neue Maske von Michael Meyers werfen...
[...] Dimension Films has confirmed that Rob Zombie will direct the Halloween sequel and he's racing to bring the film to theaters in October.
Zombie will write and direct H2, the sequel to his 2007 reinvention of the John Carpenter horror classic. Production will begin in March.
The new film picks up right as the first remake ended, following the aftermath of Michael Myers' murderous rampage through the eyes of the sister he hunted.
Zombie said it won't resemble the original second installment, as the House of 1000 Corpses helmer continues to take the franchise in different directions.
Wie STYD meldet, steht es so gut wie fest, dass Rob Zombie auch "Halloween 2" drehen wird...
Dread Central meldet...
Creepy just checked in with us from the Halloween 30 Years of Terror convention going down in Pasadena, CA with some news direct from Malek Akkad about the sequel to Rob Zombie’s Halloween!
First off, the movie will be a direct sequel to Zombie’s re-imagining, but actual plot details couldn’t be revealed as of yet. Tyler Mane will be back as Michael, though, and other cast members are in talks to return, as well. They’re hoping to star pre-production in January and shooting to start up in March.
So who will direct? That’s still in negotiations, as well. Last word was that Inside partners Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury would be behind Halloween 2, or whatever it ends up being called, but Akkad couldn’t say if that was final yet or not. [...]
Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury's departure from Dimension Films' new Hellraiser film was not a sour farewell after all.
An industry insider tells ShockTillYouDrop.com under strict anonymity the French duo behind this year's artsy bloodbath Inside, are in discussions with Bob Weinstein at Dimension Films about another potential film to make their American debut.
Our source tells us Weinstein has offered them an opportunity to helm Halloween 2, the inevitable follow-up to Rob Zombie's Halloween. And even though Bustillo and Maury recently said they were developing another new French thriller, Snow (details), these Halloween 2 rumblings corroborate whispers we've been hearing that the pair were close to committing to a U.S. picture.
Zombie has expressed publicly his disinterest in helming another Halloween. The writer-director's reworking of Carpenter's slasher milestone made $78 million worldwide.

[...] I can only Recommend this to those seeking a new take on the story. Those who are open-minded about remakes or relatively unattached to the mythos of Myers will find a wonderfully disturbing horror film here. [...]
Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik von Moriarty...
[...] ROB ZOMBIE’S JOHN CARPENTER’S HALLOWEEN is creatively bankrupt from the start. It is a fairly awful, leaden film, regardless of whether it’s a remake or a sequel or an original. It’s got huge structural problems, and there are stretches of the film that play like self-parody by Zombie, a real problem considering he’s only three movies into his career. [...]

[...] Zombie keeps Michael Myers (and the entire movie) grounded very solidly in reality without taking away the size, strength and presence of the main character.
This probably goes without saying, but Halloween definitely squeezed by with an 'R' rating and is not for women who are pregnant or nursing, those with high blood plessure or the faint of heart. The kills might not be the most creative murders in the Shatner-masked killer's film history, but I guarantee that they are the most brutal. [...]

Some crazy new Intel came into B-D this morning as we've been informed that Rob Zombie has been hard at work filming new material for his remake of Halloween, which is slated for release on August 31. Today ended seven straight days of grueling filming around the Los Angeles area, which included the addition of six, count 'em, six new death sequences! The film has been given a serious boost in violence, gore and bloodshed... but that's not the big news - we received word that an entire new finale has been shot. Details are mum on what is different, but we're told the new ending is quite gruesome!! [...]

Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik zu einer Testvorführung von Rob Zombie's "Halloween"-Remake...
[...] As a huge fan of the original, I did enjoy the movie. It never dragged. It was shocking and there are many surprises. The dialog is just what you'd expect from a Rob Zombie film. This is Rob Zombie's 'Halloween'. He took away most of the suspense, but brought us more relentless action. [...]
Bei JoBlo.com kann man einen Blick auf das Poster zu Rob Zombie's "Halloween"-Remake werfen...
Seeing as Malcolm McDowell spilled the beans earlier this week that he is signed on for two more Halloween films, the new Michael Myers, Tyler Mane, felt comfortable enough to tell Shock that he is also locked for a sequel should one come a-callin'. "I am signed for one more," Mane told us at the Saturn Awards where he and co-star Danielle Harris presented for Best Horror Movie. [...]
[...] "While the notion of Rob Zombie's "Halloween" remake may divide fans, the idea of a remake trilogy must be at the very least interesting. [...]
"I've signed for three," said Malcolm McDowell, who is playing Dr. Loomis. "How about that? They obviously think it's going to be a big hit."
Having never seen a "Halloween" movie before, McDowell is confident that his portrayal of Loomis will be unique. "I have to tell you that I've never seen Halloween 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7. I must be one of the only people on the planet never to have seen any of the films and I'm so glad because I asked the director, Rob Zombie, whether he thought I should see them and he said, 'No, better no.'"
Though friendly with Donald Pleasance in his life, McDowell never managed to catch his friend's iconic role. "I could imagine him playing Loomis of course with that sinister thing that he has but it's a new look, it's a reinvention of it and he is completely different, my Loomis, I presume. So I guess there will be some people that will be sort of disappointed if they think I'm just going to copy him because I'm not."
McDowell was also informed that there were 8 "Halloween" movies before this remake. "Well, I'm obviously talking to an expert."

SK: How about DAY OF THE DEAD (2007) and HALLOWEEN (2007). Where are you at with those scores?
TB: [...] Rob Zombie is in his third week of filming HALLOWEEN. I’m going to start working on the score next week. I usually go over to his house and watch dailies and talk about it. I’ve been working for awhile to develop a palette of sounds for that just because I had the opportunity to do a version of the John Carpenter original theme but in the Rob Zombie aesthetic. Some of that was developed while working together on THE DEVIL’S REJECTS (2005). That led to a whole palette of some pretty disturbing sounds.
SK: So the Carpenter theme will definitely be an major ingredient in the HALLOWEEN score?
TB: Yeah. You can’t do that without it. It’s part of the fantasy come to life for me. To not do that would be totally lame.
SK: It wouldn’t be HALLOWEEN.
TB: No, it wouldn’t and while Rob is making a Rob Zombie movie, it’s definitely HALLOWEEN. I think it’s really going to blow people’s minds. I think it’s going to be a lot more intense than people expect. [...]

[...] Rumor has been circulating around town that this draft is NOT even close to the draft that was being used for the shoot that was supposed to take place this month in California. Anyways, what we've heard from industry buzz is that after the online fiasco, shock-rocker Rob Zombie is going back to the script and doing more re-writes, thus pushing the shoot back a bit, thus forcing the release back from it's August 31st date.

Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik zu einem frühen Drehbuch-Entwurf für Rob Zombies' "Halloween"-Remake...
The script has a very high body count, ample nudity and a solid cast. But I firmly believe Zombie completely missed the boat on Myers and is making a big mistake with the story. The script really feels like he just wants to make Halloween... but super-badass hardcore and fuckin' extreme, without a thought to the character work that went into the original. The dialog is distractingly bad at times. He does keep Lynda's overuse of the word totally, but then he adds in Annie and Lynda always calling each other "bitch" every time they see each other. "Hey bitches!" [...]
Moviehole berichtet über Rob Zombies' "Halloween"-Remake...
[...] Update! : Apparently Michael Myers has also been cast. He'll be played by "X-Men" star Tyler Mane (Sabretooth). Contain your excitement.
As far as I can tell, there isn’t going to be much of a link between the original John Carpenter "Halloween" [series] and Rob Zombie’s reimaginging/remake/prequel/do-over... well, there didn’t seem to be initially, anyway. Now until this latest bit of news surfaced.
Seems - probably to please the purists; but then again, if that was the plan, Jamie Lee Curtis or P.J Soles would be cameo-ing, no? - director Rob Zombie has asked series’ star Danielle Harris (Jamie Lloyd in "Halloween 4" and "Halloween 5") to return for the new film, according to Fangoria.
Obviously, Harris (a little girl back then) would be playing a different character - unless part of the storyline involves Lloyd using a time machine to go back in time in an effort to save her mother, Laurie, from being sliced and diced by her maniacal brother - with some predicting she may be up for the lead role of Laurie Strode herself, the role made famous by Jamie Lee Curtis.
No doubt Zombie will officially announce Harris’s attachment at his MySpace page in the coming weeks. [...]
