Rob Zombie recently stopped by the Jimmy Kimmel show and waxed a little bit about his plans for the upcoming reboot of the HALLOWEEN franchise. He first mentioned that it wasn't even his idea to update the franchise. Bob Weinstein apparently gave him a call during the Christmas holiday and pitched him the idea. Zombie was hip to it and reboot goodness was born. As far as the story, he mentioned that he intends to make at least half of the flick a prequel of sorts likely explaining exactly how Mike Myers came to be the homicidal psycho we all know and love with the second half being a reimagining of the original film with some patented Rob Zombie flair. As far as casting, he was reluctant to mention any names for fear that once the actor got wind of it, he'd demand more money but the actual look of Meyers would have Zombie's "own little spin to it".
