Yup, you guessed it, we’ve got even more casting news for Rob Zombie’s Halloween (more here), but thankfully Rob’s making his final “big” announcement early next week. Soon we’ll be finished talking about the who’s who and talking about what’s going on next. But here’s the score for you uber-fans out there before we break some big news: Tyler Mane, Malcolm McDowell, Daeg Faerch, Heather Bowen, Pat Skipper, Dee Wallace Stone, Sheri Moon Zombie and William Forsythe. Who’s next? Read on and see!
Here’s the skinny folks, Bloody-Disgusting has learned via a few various scoopers that Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead, The Devil’s Rejects) will have a role in Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake. He will play Big Joe Grizzley, a truck driver who encounters Michael on his travels.
The casting is incredible thus far and I have to say I am extremely impressed, if the script is as good as they say I’m thinking Dimension Films might have another winner on their hands.
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.
