Rob Zombie Shelves Hockey Movie in Favor of Horror MovieWe were recently bummed to discover that Rob Zombie would be following up Lords of Salem with a hockey movie called Broad Street Bullies rather than another horror flick. Fortunately, those plans have gone up in smoke. Read on!

In a highly interesting interview with New Zealand’s 3 News, Zombie revealed that Broad Street Bullies is off the table and he’s decided to instead stay true to his roots. After working on the hockey film for nearly two years, Zombie was hit with an idea for a horror movie, which ultimately ended up winning out.

He describes that he pitched the idea to producers over the phone, and since they were totally on board with it, it became his new priority. “That turned into a weird bidding war,” he says, “and that became the next film.”

Though he didn’t reveal any plot details, Zombie did tease that his next horror movie will be cut from a similar cloth as a previous film he made, which is my personal favorite piece of his work to date.

I think it’s something fans of the other stuff will like,” he revealed. “Probably fans of The Devil’s Rejects will enjoy [it] the most. It’s not connected to that film, but it’s more on that headspace.”

Sounds great to me!

I have a beard. And two cats.

    Oh, FUCK YOU, Rob Zombie. Why couldn’t you be interested in making comedies or musicals instead of horror movies? You are an absolute fucking blight on the entire genre.

    I’d love for Zombie to develop his own style of filmmaking and stop riffing on other superior filmmakers. The wannabe Tarantino fad died in the nineties. He’s yet to really top The Devil’s Rejects, which itself was just a fluke.

  • Sirand

    The Lords of Salem was the work of a much more mature filmmaker who was able to deliver something very unique when he went outside his comfort zone. I want to see Rob Zombie push his own artistic boundaries more, not go back to doing the same trailer trash shtick.

    • MonsterMash

      You can relax. Zombies teased I believe two different Reject’s look-a-likes, and neither have been made. This, whatever it is, probably won’t either.

    Would rather have another 1,000 Corpses.

  • addeisdead

    I’m more bummed that he is still insisting on making movies. Rob Zombie is the M. Night Shyamalan of bearded rock star horror directors. Couple of great films out of the gate, and then a bunch of garbage.
