Around Hollywood, one dark topic has been spoken about in whispers: Who’s directing HALLOWEEN 9? It’s a mystery that’s confounding message board users and Michael Myers fans across the web—not to mention a secret that the execs at Dimension Films have been protecting as if their lives depended on it. This writer is amazed that the following hasn’t been leaked already…
Remember a few months back—around the time THE DEVIL’S REJECTS made its DVD debut—when writer/director Rob Zombie teased us with how his next project was going to be “big”? One could presume he was speaking of a silver-screen adaptation of the IDW comic book BIGFOOT he created with Steve Niles, a project currently set up at Rogue Pictures. But Fango has learned from many sources around town that Zombie has, in fact, been in talks with Dimension about helming HALLOWEEN 9! We’ve attempted to confirm this, but no one is talking. Furthermore, it’s uncertain as to whether he’s aiming to do the oft-rumored “lost years” prequel or an original chapter of his own. We can assure you, however, that the buzz concerning Zombie’s flirtation with the white-masked one has grown progressively louder.
If this is indeed confirmed, remember where you heard it first. If it’s a whole lotta bunk, chalk it up as one more HALLOWEEN sequel rumor to throw on the ever-growing pile!
