So the rumor mill keeps on churning concerning Halloween 2, the sequel to Rob Zombie’s re-imagining of the once great franchise; and it seems like RZ could be coming back for another round of Myers madness.
STYD reports today that “an insider phoned in this afternoon exclusively informing ShockTillYouDrop.com that Rob Zombie is going to reprise his duties as director and carry on the new Myers legacy that he forged with Tyler Mane behind the mask.”
I’ll tell you this … while not the biggest fan of last year’s remake, at the very least Zombie saved the franchise from being sent directly to Home Video Only Hell. Wherever he takes the series, I’m sure there will be lots of blood, profanity, nudity, and of course the employment of Frenetic Shaky Cam™ to give viewers that faux out-of-control feeling that I loathe so very much.
Will he reprise his directing duties? Considering he’s got a new album, T-Rex, and the ever elusive The Haunted World of El Superbeasto already on the fire, I cannot say that I’m positive, but stranger things have happened. We hope to find out soon. Filming for Halloween 2 is set to begin in March.
