    what if christopher lee came to Halloween

    Since christopher Lee didn't get to play Dr. Loomis the first time around, what would you think if he got to play the character now...

    I think the time for him to play the character was when it was first offered to him. I wouldn't be opposed to him playing Loomis in a new film, but I think there are better actors out there who could play a modern Loomis.

    Chris said that turning down the role of Dr.Loomis was one of the biggest mistakes he's ever made.If given the chance he might want to be loomis in a Halloween film.

    Isn't he 88? I really don't want an old Loomis again like in H4-H6, I prefer and older Loomis yes, but someone who can be quick and run around, like the Loomis in the first 2 Halloweens, not an old man who can hardly breath and needs to walk wih a cane however I think Loomis' character needs to be left alone, his story was done in H6, let it be.

    Yeah, I think I remember having recalled him saying something to that effect as well.

    I don't see him becoming Loomis by any means (as that's a stretch), but I could see him playing a doctor-type role in terms of being just a physician that gets in Michael's way.

    I think he'd be good in a Halloween, but not necessarilly as Loomis. Lee makes everything he's in better.

    That would be cool if he made an appearance.Malcolm McDowell did a great job in RZH1 and 2 but with the death of Loomis, the character should be left alone now.Laurie and Michael wuld be in H3D but without Loomis.They moved on without Loomis in H20 and H:R so i'm sure they could pull it off besides, they went on without Laurie in H4-H6.

    Ironically enough, both continuities had an entry that proved you can be fine without one of the core characters.

    As much as i like Christopher Lee i don't see him in the Dr Loomis role now.But there is nothing stopping him showing up in the franchise as another character.

    On a side note i remember at the Halloween 30th anniversary convention Daniel Farrands mentioned that he wrote the Dr Wynn character with Christopher Lee in mind for the role.

    cheers

    Unlikely. He regretted turning down the role because Donald Pleasence received a revitalized career instead of him. By this point, Lee has no need to revitalize his career. He might have appreciated having the Wynn role in 1995, but I don't see how any character in a Halloween film would appeal much to him now.

    You mean in terms of if he had taken the role, correct?

    I highly doubt that either Lee himself or Dimension would be interested in having him appear in a film. Besides, there are better franchises for Lee to bless his presence with - especially those belonging to Hammer Studios, instead of a used and overly retconned one such as Halloween.

    H20 did fine with the return of Laurie and of course Michael, but even those two couldn't save H:R.I guess that's because only one core character was left after the opening scenes.

    What if Christopher Lee and Busta Rhymes teamed up to kill Michael once and for all?
