Rob Zombie has told 3news that his next film will appeal to fans of his 2005 feature, “The Devil’s Rejects“. He’s put his planned hockey feature “Broad Street Bullies” on the backburner for this new project, telling the site:
“I was working on this thing called Broad Street Bullies, which was a hockey film, but that got put on the backburner because something else popped up. In such a weird way, because I’d been working on this hockey film for over two years, it took so much research and work, and I was literally sitting with someone going, ‘You know, I have this other idea…’
And I said the idea and they go, ‘We’ll make that!’ And I put together a one-line pitch, because I didn’t want to go to pitch meetings and do all that. I’d call them on the phone and go, “Here’s my idea, blah blah blah,’ and they’re like, ‘We’re in!’
So you slave over something for years and it’s still difficult, and you say some crazy thing off the top of your head and they’re like ‘Where do we sign?’. And that turned into a weird bidding war. And that became the next film. Which I don’t even want to really talk about yet because I feel like it’s a little far out.
I think it’s something fans of the other stuff will like. Probably fans of The Devil’s Rejects will enjoy the most. It’s not connected to that film but it’s more on that headspace.”
