Variety reports that Hanna Hall (The Virgin Suicides) and Daryl Sabara (Spy Kids) have joined the cast. Hall plays Michael Myers' older sister, Sabara a school bully whom Myers stalks.
Rob Zombie's vision of this film is an entirely new take on the legend and will satisfy fans of the classic Halloween legacy while beginning a new chapter in the Michael Myers saga. This new movie will not only appeal to horror fans, but to a wider movie-going audience as well. It will not be a copycat of any prior films in the Halloween franchise.
Halloween will be released on August 31st, 2007.
