This just in! Spoke with Rob and he confirmed he WILL be helming the C.H.U.D. remake!
Now this would be just plain weird … But kinda cool at the same time.
Billboard.com just posted an article about Rob Zombie’s upcoming projects, everything from a White Zombie box set to the special edition of Halloween, and made mention in passing that the rocker cum director is attached to a remake of C.H.U.D..
Whoa now, what? Why? I mean, the original is a classic in its own right and a remake sure wouldn’t hurt, but why would Zombie tackle it? Billboard didn’t get confirmation from Zombie if that is his next film or not, so we’ll put this one in the “rumors” box for now.
Keep checking back; we’ll give you more when we know it!
Wonder if the C.H.U.D.s will be real or CG in the Dread Central forums!
