‘H2: Halloween 2’ reveals Michael Myers!

'H2: Halloween 2' reveals Michael Myers!

For those of you who are still interested in H2, Rob Zombie’s follow-up to his execrable remake of Halloween, Comingsoon.net have bagged the first look at one of Michael Myers’ many looks in the upcoming film.

‘One of…?’ We hear you cry. ‘Many looks…?’, we hear others yell. And the answer is, ‘yes!’ Apparently this time Myers (the returning Tyler Mane) will be sporting some different looks throughout the film – including a maskless little number which we hear he pulls off beautifully – as he hunts down his sister, Laurie Strode.

For now, though, today’s first look sees Myers sporting his classic Bill Shatner mask – albeit a more bloodied, torn and burned version than we’re used to, which indicates that a)things aren’t going too well for the slash-happy psycho, and b) he’ll probably ditch that thing at some point.

Rob Zombie has called it a wrap on H2 and is celebrating the occasion by releasing your official first look at Michael Myers in the film. The writer/director stresses this is “one of the many faces Michael 2009.” This comes shortly after fans learned this week that Myers will be shown in various guises (sometimes maskless).

H2 is set for an August 28, 2009 release.

‘Halloween 2’ is coming to a theater near you!

'Halloween 2' is coming to a theater near you!

We just got word that Dimension Films will make “H2,” the sequel to Rob Zombie’s 2007 remake of “Halloween.” The film made $58.3 million domestically and was considered a success. Will the sequel do better?

Here’s a look at the press release Dimension sent us:

Once again, Rob Zombie has been tapped to write and direct. Malek Akkad of Trancas International Films, who also produced 2007’s Halloween with Dimension, will produce the sequel, along with Andy Gould of Spectacle Entertainment Group, Zombie’s long time manager and producing partner.  The announcement was made today by Bob Weinstein, Co-Chairman of The Weinstein Company.

Dimension’s “Halloween” scored the highest Labor Day weekend opening ever with a record-breaking $30.6 million in its first four days of release and went on to gross nearly $60 million at the domestic box office in 2007.

Zombie’s “H2” will pick up at the exact moment the first movie stopped and follow the aftermath of Michael Myers murderous rampage through the eyes of heroine Laurie Strode.
 
“H2” will be Zombie’s fifth written and directed feature.  Prior to the success of Halloween, Zombie released the critically-acclaimed film “The Devil’s Rejects” (2005), the follow-up to his cult classic “House of 1000 Corpses” (2004).  Zombie just wrapped production on his animated feature film “The Haunted World of El Superbeasto” due to be released in 2009.  Zombie, also an accomplished recording artist, has sold over fifteen million albums worldwide, making him one of Geffen Records’ top selling and longest running artists.
 
Bob Weinstein stated: “Following the success of 2007’s ‘Halloween,’ we are thrilled to be back in business with Rob Zombie, bringing a sequel to theatres.  The fans have made it clear – and we agree – that they feel the franchise is in great hands with Rob Zombie.”
 
Rob Zombie said, ”I am very excited to be working with Bob Weinstein again and returning to the world of ‘Halloween.’ The remake laid the groundwork, now it’s time to really take Michael Myers to the next level. I believe we’ve just barely scratched the surface of where we can take this series.“
 
John Carpenter’s “Halloween” launched the Halloween franchise in 1978 and Moustapha Akkad, founder of Trancas International Films, executive produced the original classic. Akkad’s son Malek has continued with the franchise, producing “Halloween” (2007), “Halloween H20: 20 Years Later” (1998) and now, “H2.”
 
“I am thrilled to be making ‘H2’ at Dimension, the home of the ‘Halloween’ franchise for the last 15 years,” commented Malek Akkad.  “I look forward to working again with Bob Weinstein, as well as a filmmaker of Rob Zombie’s talent and stature.”
