Rob Zombie Gets Halloween Gig

Hold on to your wigs, keys, and inverted William Shatner masks, everyone — word has just come down that Bob Weinstein has hired Rob Zombie to defibrillate the Halloween franchise. No details on what Zombie plans to do, but the studio promises an “entirely new take” that will appeal “not only … to horror fans, but to a wider moviegoing audience as well.” Hope they plan to keep Zombie on a very short leash in that case, since his features to date have been specialty movies if ever such a thing existed. That’s not a dis, by the way. I’m very glad The Devil’s Rejects exists, and if someone has to make a new Halloween movie, it may as well be someone with a personality.
