It looks like Daeg Faerch has been replaced by Chase Vanek. Here is what writer/director Rob Zombie had to say:
Here he is for the first time Chase Vanek the new young Michael Myers," Zombie writes. "Chase has been kicking ass on set and we are sure you will love him as much as we do. Chase's favorite question to ask me is "When do I get to kill someone?" Kind of reminds me of another young Michael I used to know."
Shooting is currently underway in Georgia on the Dimension Extreme-produced project. A release date of August 28th has been set.
Halloween II was released August 28th, 2009 and stars Sheri Moon Zombie, Chase Wright Vanek, Scout Taylor-Compton, Brad Dourif, Caroline Williams, Malcolm McDowell, Tyler Mane, Dayton Callie. The film is directed by Rob Zombie.
