Instead of scaring up moviegoers on the Halloween week, the sequel of "Halloween", "H2", will be coming out sooner. According to Bloody-Disgusting, Dimension Films have officially placed the horror thriller movie for U.S. release on the August 28 slate in place of "Tyrannosaurus Rex".
While the set release date puts "H2" to be up against Screen Gems comedy "Max's Mardi Gras", it has the same time frame as its predecessor which has been debuted in the theaters on August 31, 2007 and took the #1 spot at the box office. Originally, the movie's director/writer Rob Zombie had indirectly hinted at an October debut.
"H2" reportedly will center on the aftermath of Michael Myers' murderous rampage through the eyes of the sister he hunted. Rob Zombie reportedly has begun casting for the movie, and Tyler Mane will be returning to portray the infamous slasher, Myers. Pre-production is expected to begin sometime in January, while the principal photography is to start in early March.
