NEW YOUNG MYERS IN TOWN...

We have learned that Daeg Faerch has been recast as young Michael Myers in Rob Zombie's H2, which is currently filming around Georgia. Word on the street is that Faerch was too "grown up" for the film (now standing taller than Sheri Moon) and won't be making it into the finished project. No word on his replacement, but we'll let you know as soon as we find out. Tyler Mane is still playing adult Michael Myers in the sequel to Zombie's Halloween remake hitting theaters August 28 from Dimenon Films. We'll miss you Daeg.

I wont. Never did like that kid.

On the other hand... I wish they hadn't dumped him. I hate it when they recast characters (even if I find them very annoying). What the hell is young Michael doing in this movie anyway?

Maybe some flashback scenes?? Heck, it was obvious they were gonna do a sequal in the first place so they should had filmed some scenes in the first place

I couldnt stand that pudgy hit me faced kid. He sucked and the only kid actor Ive seen worse than him in

a big spot was the android puppet that played Annakin in PHANTOM MENACE. I dont understand though....Rob MUST be doing flash backs to pre HALLOWEEN myers. otherwise why would he really need to recast him? Zombie could have done flashback scenes with Michael as a 12/13/14/15 year old and used ol' muffin head. Not too much of a big deal but shouldn't Rob have seen this coming?

It'll be interesting to see what's done with the flashbacks.

Damn...That sucks

.

I honestly liked Daeg and thought he did a great job in RZ's Halloween... I didn't care for the movie all that much but I did think Daeg did a great job.

I have met him a couple of times and he is the sweetest and most ncere person.

I am really hoping this isn't meaning that the movie is going to be a lot of Flashbacks... I am not a big fan of that idea if that is in fact what's gonna happen.

I could be totally wrong.

But these "flashback" scenes might be used in the same way the original H2 used them.

Laurie will start to make the conncection in flashbacks, vions, or dreams that she is Michael's ster.

This seems to be the most obvious reason.

Otherwise I have no clue what these scenes will be used for.

I was thinking the same thing...flashbacks make sense but then it doesn't really make sense to replace him. I hate when they do flashbacks with different people who weren't even there the 1st time....

If RZ showed young Myers as a retarded kid, anything is posble. He could put Leslie Nielsen palying young Myers though...
