Dimension Films Locks up Rob Zombie

You gotta figure that with a name like Rob Zombie, this is a guy who you’ll never catch remaking, say, “Mary Poppins” with Natalie Portman. So I think it’s a pretty good bet that when Zombie signed on the dotted line with Dimension Films to to do a two-picture deal with them, that we can expect to see two horror movies from the former White Zombie frontman in the near future. Under the deal, Zombie would write and produce both movies form Dimension films, although Variety cautions that they don’t know if both films will be horror films. Um, guys, I’m going to have to go with, “Yeah, I’m pretty sure they’ll both be horror films.”


“We are excited about his fresh take on ‘Halloween’ and are thrilled to be expanding our relationship with him on future projects,” Dimension topper Bob Weinstein said. “We admire Rob for all the roles he plays, both as a director and writer.”

Zombie said the two-picture deal with Dimension is a “natural step in the evolution of my film career.”

Zombie is one busy cat. He’s got the remake of John Carpenter’s “Halloween” coming out later this week, and he’s already attached to direct the upcoming animated movie, “The Haunted World of El Superbeasto,” with Paul Giamatti providing voice work.
