Rob Zombie continues to show his love for the classics by casting four classic actors in his remake of Halloween, which is aiming at an August 31st release date. Inside you’ll find out who’s joining Tyler Mane (Michael Myers), Malcolm McDowell (Dr Loomis), Daeg Faerch (young Michael Myers), Heather Bowen, Pat Skipper, Dee Wallace Stone, Sheri Moon Zombie, William Forsythe, Ken Foree and Danielle Harris in the film, which has been getting both positive and negative attention on the internet.
Rob Zombie revealed on his official MySpace blog for his remake of Halloween that Adrienne Barbeau (Creep Show, The Fog), Clint Howard (Evilspeak, Leprechaun 2, Ice Cream Man), Courtney Gains (The Phobic) and Daryl Sabara (Solace) have all joined the cast of the film, which is prepping for shoot soon.
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.
