ROB ZOMBIE Says He Is 'Thinking About The Next Album'

Despite a recent web posting from one of his forum moderators which indicated that Rob Zombie had already begun work on a new record, the singer has told Rolling Stone magazine that plans for him to record and release the follow-up to 2001's "The Sinister Urge" are murky at best. "I am thinking about the next one," he said. "That's how it always starts, thinking about how it's gonna be. But I have talked to Scott Humphrey [who produced all of Zombie's solo records]. We talked about hooking up at some point in December. But there's really not enough time for everything. It seems like the sun comes up and the sun goes back down, and I'm just like, 'Oh boy.'"

Zombie is also working on the sequel to "House of 1,000 Corpses", which he hopes to begin shooting next spring for a tentative late 2004 theatrical release. "It's not going to be 'House of 1,000 Corpses II' or anything like that," he said. "I wanted to so something like 'Star Wars', where you have that first film and then you have 'The Empire Strikes Back'. You get a totally different thing. It's truly the sequel to the movie, but it's a continuation of the story, not just the same story again."

As previously reported, Rob Zombie and writer Steve Niles have partnered up to form Creep Entertainment International, a Los Angeles-based production company that will develop feature films, comics, books, video games and music, with their shared love of horror as the common thread.

The first projects from the Los Angeles-based company will be three comic books — "The Nail", "Bigfoot" and the comic book/music hybrid "The Lords of Salem". All three are co-written by Zombie and Niles.
