The director of two 'Halloween' films has stated that he will not direct another installment of the horror franchise, but refused to share the reason why.
There may never be another "Halloween" film for director Rob Zombie. Being interviewed by MTV at San Diego Comic Con 2009 during which he promoted his upcoming movie "H2: Halloween 2", the director stated that he will not make a third "Halloween" movie, saying "No. I could not see that in any shape, way or form. Never."
However, Zombie, who previously directed "Houses of 1000 Corpses" and "The Devil's Rejects", refused to explain why he is unwilling to be involved in the third installment of the film. "If I told you [why], you wouldn't believe me," he stated. He moreover added that he doesn't have desire to share his reason, saying "And, I don't want to tell you."
Similar statement was previously released by Zombie when talking about possibility of "H2". Back at that time after he finished directing "Halloween", the helmer insisted that he wouldn't return to do the sequel and if Dimension Films wanted to make the sequel, they would have to do it without him. Soon after, however, it was announced that he will be involved in the second film.
Rob Zombie's 2007 "Halloween" is a remake to John Carpenter's 1978 film. It follows the premise of the original film with Michael Myers stalking Laurie Strode and her friends on Halloween night. "H2: Halloween 2", on the other hand, witnesses the time Myers returning to his hometown of Haddonfield, Illionis to bring "closure to the secrets of his twisted past." Tyler Mane and Scout Taylor-Compton are among the original cast to reprise their roles in the sequel, which will open in U.S. theaters August 28.
