Rob Zombie, who is set to direct a new version of the horror film HALLOWEEN, talked about the upcoming film in an interview with www.halloweenmovies.com.
Some interesting quotes from Zombie:
"I am basically making a prequel and a semi-remake of the first film all in one. So really in theory there will be more original content than remake content. That's why I don't like the word "remake.""
When asked if he was planning to go into Michaels childhood, Zombie said, "I think this aspect of the story is very important in order to bring new life to the character of Michael Myers. The film begins in 1978."
"I wouldn't even go near this project if I didn't feel like a had a fresh, worthwhile approach to the material. Besides, I'm not touching one single frame of Carpenter's classic. That film will remain as it always has."
"I talked to John about it and he was vey supportive. He basically said, "That's great Rob, go for it and make it your own." What more do I need?"
