Amidst all the hoopla concerning the more-bizarre-looking-by-the-day sequel to Halloween, Zombie took a few moments recently to talk one of his other projects – the ever elusive T-Rex.
Rob spoke to MTV Movies Blog about the flick and guess what? It’s apparently not a horror movie. Ok. We can finally all breathe a little easier. YAY!
“It’s not a horror movie,” explained Zombie. “It’s like an incredibly violent ’70s action movie. I can’t think of anything that’s like it. Just a gritty, gnarly, violent movie. But it’s not a horror movie in any way.”
“It’s sort of like a cross between that Dustin Hoffman movie ‘Straight Time’ mixed with ‘Raging Bull’… sort of,” said Zombie. “I want to make a serious movie about this washed-up prizefighter who’s got this self-destructive tendency, and he comes out of prison and the only way he knows how to survive is by fighting.”
Added Zombie, “But his boxing career is over so he gets caught up in this sort of underground fight ring. But it’s all set in the ’70s, so it’s not like an ‘Ultimate Fighting’ type thing. It’s more like just nasty. It’s like if ‘Every Which Way But Loose’ was a serious movie. How about that? Minus the orangutan.”
So there you have it, folks. What may be the last word you hear about T-Rex here. Of course something will eventually happen that switches things up a bit and we’ll have no choice but to cover it. Enjoy the silence for now.
