Zombie going back to the typewriter? HALLOWEEN delayed?!?

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with an interesting rumored development on Rob Zombie's HALLOWEEN.
My script review wasn't very flattering, but I also purposefully tried to keep the criticism constructive. I think Rob Zombie could make a great movie that is both his own and true to the spirit of HALLOWEEN.
Bloody-Disgusting is reporting a rumor that Zombie has decided to put off production for a little while in order to rewrite the script.
I've been told by a few people that the script I read wasn't very far removed from the shooting draft, despite what some sites reported. I don't know for sure as I've never talked to Rob Zombie in my life, but if what Bloody-Disgusting has posted is true, then I'd be inclined to believe my other sources.
I'm happy that he's gone back and re-evaluated the script. All I want is a good HALLOWEEN movie and doing this semi-remake/semi-prequel is a good chance to focus on what made the first film so great and avoid the trappings that made the sequels suck many nuts.
I am arrived at Sundance, so I'll be buried with films and fest stuff here for the next week, but I'm sure my cohorts in crime will keep you updated if Zombie makes an official announcement.
