Interview: The Dark Side of Laurie Strode

ON visited the Newborn, Georgia set of Rob Zombie’s Halloween sequel, H2, this week and talked to Scout Taylor-Compton about reprising her role of Laurie Strode. Dimension Films is planning to release the film on August 28. Here’s an excerpt:

“The first time I heard about Halloween 2, there were two French directors [Inside’s Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury] doing it and I was hesitant,” she admits. “Then Rob e-mailed me and said, ‘Hey, I’m doing this film but don’t tell anybody, it hasn’t been set down yet.’ Then he called me and said, ‘We’re doing this,’ and I hadn’t read the script until the day before I was leaving. All he said was ‘Be ready to kick ass.’ I had no idea what the script was about until I read it on the plane. I had no idea what Laurie was going to go through, then I was like ‘Holy sh*t, this movie’s about me.’ I guess I got to be prepared.”
