Rob Zombie recently announced that he had scrapped plans to direct a hockey movie called "Broad Street Bullies" in favor of a new film in the genre he's best known for, horror. A short time later, Zombie revealed that he was also working on a new TV miniseries about the Manson Family murders with "American Psycho" author Bret Easton Ellis. But Zombie told The Pulse Of Radio that his new horror movie will come out first. "The other thing is an original thing of my own which is definitely a horror thing," he said. "It's definitely in the vein, I think, of what fans of what I've done in the past would enjoy. So that one's moving along about a million times faster than the other thing, so that'll be the next project."
Zombie also told The Pulse Of Radio that the Manson project remains in development at the FX network, with Ellis currently working on a draft of the script.
Zombie will kick off a 12-date run of shows on Saturday (April 26) in Fort Myers, Florida at the Fort Rock festival.
His first-ever concert home video, "The Zombie Horror Picture Show", is due out on Blu-ray and DVD on May 20th.
Zombie had been working on "Broad Street Bullies" for two years but said that the film wasn't getting anywhere.
"Broad Street Bullies" was going to be about the Philadelphia Flyers hockey team of the 1970s that were notorious for their violent tactics on the ice.
Zombie's previous films include "House Of 1000 Corpses", "The Devil's Rejects", the 2007 remake of "Halloween" and its 2009 sequel, and "The Lords Of Salem".
