TONY IOMMI Talks About Scoring Movies

Next Films the film-production company launched by top reality TV producer Mike Fleiss in 2009 signed a deal with legendary BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi for "Black Sabbath", a horror movie franchise. The films won't be about the group but will use the title as a jumping-off point. Iommi also will score the movies.

As for the music Tony will put in the films, the guitarist told VH1 Radio Network's Dave Basner, "[I will] either [be] redoing some of the SABBATH stuff in more of a different vein, maybe, and [writing] some new stuff. So it's open. We haven't actually gotten to the movie part yet where I can say, 'Oh, I can see this bit on this.' And that's another interesting project for me to have a go out. I like a little bit of a challenge. I might be really crap at it, I don't know."

All four original BLACK SABBATH members will reunite for a press conference on November 11 at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, California the same venue where the band made its Los Angeles debut on November 11, 1970 (41 years ago), opening for ALICE COOPER at exactly 11:11 a.m. They are widely expected to announce that they have begun writing material for a new album in addition to preparing to play their first live shows since the summer of 2005.
