Weinstein’s low-balling McDowell?

Weinstein’s low-balling McDowell?

Malcolm McDowell was the Guest of Honor at a SAG Foundation “Conversations” Event tonight in Hollywood. The veteran actor was praised for his performance – among others, of course – as Dr. Loomis in Rob Zombie’s highly-underrated (I honestly believe that to be one of the smartest, and most creative, remakes Hollywood has produced in years; if you’re going to ‘do over’ something, then please check that one out for inspiration before-hand) “Halloween”.

A gracious McDowell took the opportunity to inform fans he may not be back in the role for the sequel “H2″ – if The Weinstein’s keep low-balling him.

Upon being told he was the one-and-only actor to bring Loomis back to life for the redo of John Carpenter’s horror classic, McDowell said ”Maybe you ought to tell that to the Weinsteins! We’re in the middle of negotiating right now!”, Aint it Cool News quoted the acting as saying.

“Those f*ckers!”, McDowell, somewhat joking, said of Bob and Harvey Weinstein.

McDowell says director Rob Zombie, of course, wants him to come back for the sequel – even though the actor ”himself thought Loomis must surely be dead…and that the Weinsteins are probably wishing Loomis WAS dead”, says AICN.

“I haven’t read the script yet”, McDowell responded when asked about the storyline, but he did say it’s said to be set two months after the events of the last film. This time, it’s the “notorious Sheriff” who is in pursuit of Michael Myers, because Loomis is on a book tour.

Meanwhile, over on the official site there’s a new teaser poster for “H2″, due in theaters next August.
