ROB ZOMBIE Announces Title For 'Corpses' Sequel

Rob Zombie has set "The Devil's Rejects" as the title of his much-anticipated sequel to the his directorial debut, "House of 1000 Corpses", tentatively due later in the year.

"The Devil's Rejects" (which "refers to the nickname that the media has bestowed upon our favorite band of murderers, according to a post on Rob's web site) will feature a plot revolving around "the revenge-driven brother of slain Sheriff Wydell hunting down the family with a band of bounty hunters." All original cast members are said to be on board.

Even though "House of 1000 Corpses" was not a box office smash, the relatively low-budget flick's (which cost a reported $7 million to produce) $12.5 million haul was enough to make Lions Gate Films happy.

"[Making the movie] is totally different this time," Zombie told MTV.com last summer. "With Lions Gate, they came to the rescue. And they really believe in the project. It's more like the opposite [of making the last one]. This time they are wishing me to move faster, so it's kind of funny."
