When we last heard about Rob Zombie’s directing career, we heard that he was at work on Broad Street Bullies, a film focused on the Philadelphia Flyers. Apparently, that’s not happening anymore. Speaking with New Zealand’s News 3, Zombie explained that while working on the film, he just randomly came up with another idea for, you guessed it, another horror film.
Zombie commented on moving back to the horror genre:
“The movies I’ve made up to this point have been pretty dark and pretty much in that world because those are the opportunities that were presented. You know, the people that put up the money for these things know that if I stick to that sort of thing, it’s easily more profitable. So it’s a much bigger challenge to break out of it.”
“I think it’s something fans of the other stuff will like. 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.”
This is disappointing news for hockey fans, specifically Flyers fans. But horror fans might rejoice assuming this horror film idea isn’t to remake Jason X or something (that’s when Jason goes to space for the record). Although the article does say that Broad Street Bullies is “on the backburner,” not totally dropped, so Flyers fans may still get to see blood on the ice.
