Zombie Confirmed for Halloween Sequel
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.
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 theaters. 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."
"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."
