Despite previous reports of delays, Fango has been tipped off that shooting on Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN has quietly begun—as the outcry over the writer/director’s vision of Michael Myers’ saga grows more heated.
According to Fango's source, Zombie began yesterday with some soundstage work deep in the heart of Hollywood. And reports are coming in that devoted fans of the franchise savvy enough to know the location of the HALLOWEEN production offices are expressing their disdain over Zombie’s re-imagining. Usually, the genre’s greatest detractors who publicly voice their judgment come in the guise of religious zealots or parenting groups; however, this morning, picketers on Sunset Boulevard wielded signs of protest that proclaimed Zombie was “raping” a classic, along with various other phrases that cried for a halt to the production. They’ve since disappeared—whether calling it a day or ushered away by security is unknown. We’ll let you know more as HALLOWEEN’s shoot continues.
