And just when you thought we were done for the week… we’ve just scored some exclusive casting news directly from the mouths of some of the “Rejects” from Rob Zombie’s first two films! Read on to see three more names added to the laundry list of cast members in Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake, which hits theaters everywhere on August 31st. From what I hear the script is f-cking unbelievable! Bring it on Rob! Halloween begins shooting later this month.
We’ve received word from that Lew Temple (The Devil’s Rejects, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Danny Trejo (Grindhouse, The Devil’s Rejects, From Dusk Till Dawn) have also joined the cast of Rob Zombie’s ‘Halloween’!
Temple will play Nole Kluggs, a co-worker of Ismael at Smith’s Grove and Trejo will play Ismal Cruz, a sympathetic worker at Smith’s Grove Sanitarium
Earlier today William Fortsythe and Sheri Moon Zombie joined Tyler Mane (Michael Myers), Malcolm McDowell (Dr. Loomis), Daeg Faerch (young Michael Myers), Heather Bowen, Pat Skipper (Mr. Strode) and Dee Wallace Stone (Mrs. Strode).
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.
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 is a bit of a prequel and a remake, combined,” says Zombie.
