    Default Confirmed: Rob Zombie in for Halloween Sequel - H2

    For the gore freaks out there...

    Just two weeks after the rumor first hit, Variety is reporting today that Rob Zombie is officially on board to write and direct a sequel to his 2007 re-imagining of the Halloween classic. The film will be titled H2 - not to be confused with 1998's Halloween H20 - and is intended as an October 2009 release. Given this timeline, the film is to start production as early as March, which means Zombie has a lot of writing to do to get this ready - a fact that worries me a bit, considering that French directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Muary had also put in a good deal of work on the script when they were attached previously. Variety claims that H2 will pick up where Zombie's original left off, and will follow his new vision for the story.

    Shortly following his 2007 film, Zombie's claim that he would not return for a possible sequel was broadly reported. However, the man now says, "I was so burned out. (But) I took a long break, made a record and I got excited again. Now, we'll be hauling ass, and that's the problem making a movie called Halloween: If you come out Nov. 1 or after, nobody cares. If it was called anything else, I'd be fine." As a show of progress, I suppose, Dimension Films also released a teaser poster for H2, as seen below, though nothing about it speaks to progress on the film. Hopefully the expedited schedule won't affect the final product, but only time will tell if Zombie can deliver as well as he did the first time around.

    Tyler Mane retains his role as Michael Myers. We also have the animated Haunted World of El Superbeasto & Tyrannosaurus Rex. Zombie makes some hardcore, nasty shit!

    I thought the first one was a pointless piece of shit.

    Loved the first film.

    Didn't screw the Original set over, and made a good alternative story.

    Must remember to watch Devils Rejects again, that's some funny shit!
