Rob Zombie’s ‘Halloween’ Continues Casting, Still No Strode

The cast is quickly growing and Laurie Strode is yet to be seen, but while we wait, Rob Zombie has added two more to his growing list of names for his remake of Halloween, which is being set up for Dimension Films to release on August 31st. So far the names include Tyler Mane, Malcolm McDowell, Daeg Faerch, Heather Bowen, Pat Skipper, Dee Wallace Stone, Sheri Moon Zombie, William Forsythe, Ken Foree, Danielle Harris, Adrienne Barbeau, Clint Howard, Courtney Gains, Daryl Sabara and Brad Dourif – read on to see who will be joining them.
Rob Zombie revealed today on his MySpace blog that Lynda will be played by KRISTINA KLEBE (Delirious) and UDO KIER (Blade, Shadow of the Vampire, Grindhouse, Mother of Tears, Suspiria) will play Morgan Walker head of Smith’s Grove Sanitarium.

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.
