Rob Zombie announced today on his official Halloween MySpace page that Michael Myers will be played by none other than Tyler Mane (pic inside) in Dimension Films’ Halloween remake! I’m sure you all remember Tyler as Rufus from The Devil’s Rejects, Sabretooth in the X-Men and the unstoppable Ajax in Troy. He joins Malcolm McDowell (Dr. Loomis), Sheri Moon, Daeg Faerch (young Michael Myers) and Heather Bowen in the quasi-remake, which hits theaters everywhere August 31st. Danielle Harris is still yet to be confirmed. After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, is mistakenly released from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
