Zombie has told Artist Direct in a new interview that "Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor" could one day make it to the big screen as a Zombie-directed film. The rocker and filmmaker explained, "I think it could. I made it with that in mind. At least in my mind — no one else knows this — I wanted to have a storyline that runs through the record so if someday I wanted to make it into a movie musical like THE WHO's 'Tommy' or 'Quadrophenia', there was a structure to follow. I'm not really talking about what it is because I think it's sort of relevant at this point."
Even if he does make a movie out of the album, it won't be for a while: Zombie's next planned film is "Broad Street Bullies", about the notorious Philadelphia Flyers hockey team of the 1970s. Zombie told The Pulse Of Radio how the film came to him. "Someone came to me who had the rights to the story," he said. "He had gotten the rights from the Flyers and he was a fan of my films. And he saw 'Devil's Rejects', I think it was, and he was like, he said just the feel of the movie and the look of the movie felt so authentically '70s that he thought that — he didn't even know I liked hockey or had any affinity for it, he just took a chance. So it was just a perfect match."
Zombie has finished the script for "Broad Street Bullies" but does not know when production will begin due to his touring commitments.
His latest completed movie, "The Lords Of Salem", is out in limited release.
Zombie and FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will headline the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, which kicks off on June 29 in San Bernardino, California.
