In a new interview over at SuicideGirls, Tyler Mane takes advantage of this week's DVD release of Halloween to talk about his take on the character and how it all came together. When asked if he's vulnerable to typecasting after playing a hulking monster, he responds: "Man, I'm 6 foot 8. I'm gonna be typecast. It's not like I'm gonna be the romantic lead, although that wouldn't be bad. But it is what it is, and we'll just see where it goes." He also reveals that he has signed on to do another Halloween film, but Rob Zombie apparently can't be persuaded to go through with directing any further installments of the series. "I signed on [for the sequel] thinking he was going to be doing it, but Rob feels he's told his story, with a beginning, middle and an end. Who knows, you know? The one thing I've learned in this business is never say never."
In fact, Zombie seems to be up in the air about exactly where his career goes from here. Although Halloween had a nice opening weekend, Zombie seems a bit dissatisfied, having passed up the opportunity to direct Steve Niles' much-talked about script for Bigfoot and now eschewing a return to Michael Myers territory. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Zombie even says he'd like his next film to be a Western. "It's one of my favorite genres," he says. "I love John Ford, Howard Hawks."
