Rob Zombie needs a Loomis for “Halloween” redo


The DGA’s favourite shock rocker, Rob Zombie, tells MTV that he’s on the lookout for an actor to play Doctor Loomis – the child shrink character played by the late Donald Pleasence in John Carpenter’s original film; as well as the ill-fated sequels – in his “Halloween” remake.

Among the actors said to be on Zombie’s wish-list are Jeff Bridges (A name I’ve actually heard mentioned in relation to the role for a while now – so I wouldn’t be surprised if they are actually talking to JB) and Ben Kingsley. Whoever wins the role will have a lot more to do as Loomis than Pleasance ever did.

“I felt the character of Dr. Loomis just popped in and out when they needed somebody to say something dramatic,” Zombie observed. “I wanted his story to feel more intertwined with Michael in a way that means something, which they did in the original, but sometimes it feels like he disappears for a long period and then just pops up to go, ‘He’s evil!,’ and then he disappears again for a while.”

“There is no shortage of late-50s, early-60s male actors that are amazing and would like to work more, probably much like Donald Pleasence at the time [he was cast as the original Loomis],” Zombie said.
