Movie-Halloween remake!!!

I am so excited, I just found out my all time favortie Halloween movie is being redone and is scheduled to come out August 31! Anyone else hear about this or want to watch?

Halloween
The night he came home


Rob Zombie will direct a remake of the John Carpenter classic, Halloween. This will NOT be a sequel, and it will be a complete "re-imagining" of the movie, similar to Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead. (Halloween was a 1977 film in which a patient in a mental hospital, Michael Myers, escapes the asylum and goes on a killing spree. He was pursued by Dr. Loomis, who was brilliantly portrayed by the late Donald Pleasance.) Dimension Films announced the remake the first weekend in June, 2006.

Rob Zombie will not only serve as director of the new Halloween, but he is also a producer and music supervisor. Halloween will be Zombie's third gig as director, after House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects. Andy Gould is one of the co-producers; Gould has worked with Zombie on his two previous movies. The new Halloween was originally slated for release in October 2007, but the release date has been moved up to August 31, 2007.
Zombie says that this will be a "new take" on the Halloween franchise, and he hopes that it will oblige fans of the original while offering something fresh to movie-goers. The film is planned to be both a prequel and a remake of the original. The story is set before the events of 1981's Halloween 2, and will focus on Myer's youth (before he was institutionalized) and how he develops into a serial killer.
Rob Zombie had this to say about John Carpenter in an interview with Variety:
"The original 'Halloween' is hallowed ground to me, and I talked to him about it and he was very supportive of what I wanted to do," Zombie said. "He said, 'Go for it, Rob. Make it your own.' And that's exactly what I intend to do. Over 25 years and a lot of movies, a very scary character became something of a Halloween cliché, with Michael Myers dolls that play the Halloween music when you press their stomachs. By the end of the sequel cycle, there was little connection to the original. I take that film very seriously, and I want to make it terrifying again."

I saw the previews of it and think it looks like it will be pretty good. The new Michael Myers looks very creepy. I am sure I will see it.

I have to wait for horror movies to come out on DVD cause most theatre owners won't let me bring my blankie into the theatre with me...
