Back in a news report from June of this year, word got out that French director’s Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury were in talks to helm HALLOWEEN 2, the sequel to Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN remake. Now, the director’s themselves have commented about the upcoming flick in the pages of Rue Morgue magazine according to SHOCK.
Maury says, "it’s a proposition we couldn’t refuse." (From the SHOCK post:) He explains they’re reverent of Zombie’s re-imagining of Michael Myers and they’re out to put their stamp on the character not copy what came before them. "Therefore, our vision will be done with upmost respect, with a continuity of [Zombie’s] work but also a real evolution of the world he set in place."
Have you guys seen INSIDE yet? The flick these 2 crazy bastards made? It’s by far one of the most brutal and bloody movies that this writer has seen in years, so the idea of these guys making a Michael Myers flick is intriguing. We would assume that Scout Taylor-Compton would return as Laurie Strode. Rumor has it that Tyler Mane (Michael Myers) and Malcolm McDowell (Dr. Sam Loomis) signed sequel contracts when they signed on to the first film. September’s issue of Rue Morgue magazine will have the full interview with the director duo. More when we hear it!
