Rob Zombie Announces Unexpected New ProjectUm. Really? Seriously? For real? Hang on; let me wipe my eyes and try again. Nope. The news is still the same. It’s perplexing. Odd even. Who would have thunk it? Talk about out of left field. Rob Zombie is about to put some icing on his new movie.

This is the first and last time we’ll be covering this flick, and we’re only doing so now because making a movie of this type is one of the last things we’d ever expect the filmmaker to do. According to Deadline, Rob Zombie will write, direct, and produce Broad Street Bullies, a film about the Philadelphia Flyers hockey team that evolved from a cellar-dwelling expansion team into a team that racked up victories and penalty minutes in equal measure during the 70s.

Zombie got the rights to the team’s story and has the full support of the Flyers organization. He likened the tone of the tale to Rocky meets Boogie Nights on ice. “Each character involved is more outrageous than the next,” Zombie said. “The backdrop of the turbulent year of 1974 is perfect for this ‘stranger than fiction’ sports tale.

There you have it, kids. Oddest story of the day!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • JB Demented

    Umm ok

  • DavidFullam

    Interesting, I can’t wait.

  • LSD Zombie

    If Zombie really wants my money, he should cast Haig and Mosely as some of the hockey players. Either that or maybe they can be the coaches of the opposing teams. HELL YEAH!

  • Terminal

    So Kevin Smith is doing a hockey movie and now Zombie wants to do one? Way to be a trailblazer!

  • Masked Slasher

    Well, hey, this is different for Rob.

    More power to him.

    • Foywonder

      Same here. I’d love to see what he can do with a movie that is neither horror nor a remake.
