ROB ZOMBIE To Begin Filming 'H2' Tomorrow

On Monday, February 23, Rob Zombie will officially start shooting "H2", the sequel to his successful 2007 remake of "Halloween". The release is tentatively scheduled for late August.

Zombie said in an interview an interview with Icons Of Fright that he decided to come back to the "Halloween" franchise because he wanted to expand the story beyond just remaking the original.

He explained, "I originally envisioned it as two movies ... but unfortunately I couldn't convince anyone to take the stance and make two films back to back." He added that the new movie will focus less on serial killer Michael Myers and more on his sister, Laurie, saying, "Everyone she knows is basically dead, and she is related to the person that did it all and doesn't even know who the f*** she is. So it's really the journey of figuring out who she is."

Following the success of the newly released "My Bloody Valentine 3D", Zombie said he'd be interested in shooting in 3D, but only if "you can use 3D without making it a 3D movie ... just tell a story, but you don't have to shove anything in your face."

Zombie is going to delay the release of his new album until after he is finished shooting "H2". He said in the interview, "I'll probably put that out after I'm done shooting the movie. The record's done and sitting on the shelf waiting to come out, but I don't want to put it out while I'm shooting 'Halloween 2' because I can't deal with it too much. I'm really excited about it, though."
