rz - 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!
