The man himself finally commented on having to re-cast the role of young Michael Myers because intended actor Daeg Faerch has hit a hell of a growth spurt since the first film.
Says Zombie on his MySpace page:
“I know some of you are confused as to why Daeg is not in the film. Recasting young Michael was not something I wanted to do, but the scenes just didn’t work anymore. Daeg is no longer a little boy, he is a teenager with a deep voice. Once you see the film you will understand why I made this choice. It was not an easy choice and was not made lightly. Daeg kicked ass in Halloween, but things change. I think Daeg is very, very talented and I wish him all the best.”
No word yet on who will be replacing Daeg, but the kid will have some really big small shoes to fill.
Look for “>Halloween 2 on its release date of August 28th, 2009.
