Rob Zombie announced today that Malcolm McDowell is returning to play Dr. Sam Loomis in H2 (his sequel to his Halloween reboot), while also taking a jab at press for reporting he might not return (even though it’s 100% true that he wasn’t signed as of last week). “Rumors have it that Malcolm will not be returning as Dr. Loomis. Well, as usual the rumors are wrong. Malcolm McDowell will be back and ready to deal with big Mike,” Zombie writes on his blog forgetting to mention he personally started the CHUD remake rumors last year. 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.
