Rob Zombie Schedules The Lords of Salem, Dumps the Blob

The latest news on the Rob Zombie front has the rocker/horror movie director committing to direct the horror movie “The Lords of Salem” as his next gig.

“The Lords of Salem” is set in contemporary Salem, where the inhabitants receive a demonic visit from a 300-year old coven of witches. Being the renaissance man that ahe is, Zombie will write the script for the movie while on tour.

In the same Deadline article, Zombie also confirms that he’s dumped his announced remake of “The Blob”, citing his need to stay away from the “remake train” after two “Halloween” movies. I guess that need didn’t arise when the remake was announced, but has since pulled into the Rob Zombie station. Oh well.

“The Lords of Salem” is a co-production between Haunted Films and Alliance Films, and is scheduled to shoot sometime next year.

    I keep hearing about Rob Zombie directed movies and getting exited only to be let down a few months later. First with his announce reimagining of Bonnie and Clyde, then a third installment of his Firefly family films now again with The Blob remake. Why He decides to scrap seemingly good projects and makes god awful pieces of crap like H2 is beyond me.
