Earlier this month John Carpenter revealed the director, writers, and release date for the upcoming ‘Halloween’ film.
Since the announcement there has been a debate amongst genre fans about how should be cast in the role of Dr. Loomis. Fans already have a man in mind, Freddy Krueger actor Robert Englund. In fact, there is now a petition being shared in hopes of convincing the studio, director David Gordon Green, and co-writer Danny McBride to cast Englund as Michael Myers’ foe.
This petition was created to allow fans of the Halloween series a direct say in a very salient part of the next film.
In short, we think none other than the original Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund, would be the perfect person to play Dr. Samuel Loomis. He has the look, the age, and the of course, the acting skills, to play Michael Myers most dedicated foe.
And if Loomis isn’t in plans for the future film, consider him for a role similar to the character.
Lets make it happen Blumhouse!”
Robert Englund would be a fantastic choice he’s the right age, is the right age, and has the talent to star as the doctor.
If you agree that Robert Englund should play the Dr. Loomis, be sure to sign the petition! We will keep you posted.
