Get Ready for a Very Zombie "Halloween"

by | June 5, 2006 | Comments

If you love the original "Halloween," but have grown a little weary with the endless sequels, it looks like shock-maker Rob Zombie might have just the answer: He’ll be writing and directing an all-new installment in the series (don’t call it a sequel!), which will be ready for release in October of 2007.

One of the little guys got there before The Hollywood Reporter did, so let’s give fair credit to "Dimension Films is proud to announce that they will make a new “Halloween” movie with Rob Zombie ("The Devil’s Rejects," "House of 1000 Corpses") writing, directing and serving as a producer. Malek Akkad of Trancas International Films ("Halloween H20: 20 Years Later") will produce the feature along with Andy Gould of Vision Entertainment Group ("The Devil’s Rejects," "House of 1000 Corpses"). Zombie will also serve as music supervisor on the film. Miramax Films will co-finance the development with Dimension Films. The announcement was made today by The Weinstein Company co-chairman, Bob Weinstein.

Zombie’s vision of this film is an entirely new take on the legend and will satisfy fans of the classic "Halloween" legacy while beginning a new chapter in the Michael Myers saga. This new movie will not only appeal to horror fans, but to a wider movie-going audience as well. It will not be a copycat of any prior films in the "Halloween" franchise. The film is set for an October 2007 theatrical release."
