According to Fangoria.com, Rob Zombie is rumored to be in talks with Dimension Films about helming the ninth installment of the "Halloween" franchise. It is unclear as to whether he's aiming to do the oft-rumored "lost years" prequel or an original chapter of his own.World Entertainment News Network reported last month that plans to make "Halloween: The Missing Years" were shelved when producer Moustapha Akkad died in last year's terrorist attacks in Jordan, but writer Jake Wade Wall has confirmed to MovieHole.net that the series is back on. Wall told the site that the prequel will be set before the events of "Halloween 2: Halloween Resurrection", and will focus on the life of serial killer Michael Myers as a young man, before he was placed in a mental institution. Wall said, "I've been hired three different times for it (the film)... It looks like it's finally set to go. "I know that they're (studio executives) in the process of nailing down a really big director but I haven't been able to figure out who it is yet."
