4 More Join Zombies HalloweenDirtyRobot
Rumours of rewrites and production delays notwithstanding, the cast continues to grow with a couple familiar names. According to Zombie's official Halloween MySpace page Adrienne Barbeau, Clint Howard, Courtney Gains and Daryl Sabara have joined the cast. No word yet on who they will play. Rob 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 new movie will not only appeal to horror fans, but to a wider movie-going audience as well. It will not be a copycat of any prior films in the "Halloween" franchise.
Rob Zombie ("The Devil's Rejects", "House of 1000 Corpses") writes, directs and servs as a producer. Malek Akkad of Trancas International Films ("Halloween H20: 20 Years Later") will produce the feature along with Andy Gould of Vision Entertainment Group ("The Devil's Rejects", "House of 1000 Corpses"). Zombie will also serve as music supervisor on the film. Miramax Films will co-finance the development with Dimension Films.
