I personally thought last year's The Lords Of Salem was a pretty brilliant interpretation of one woman's struggle for normalcy while battling addiction... Or it was just a crazy movie about witches. Either way, I dug it. then crushed my dreams by saying it was going to be his last horror movie for a very, very long time. It felt like someone stabbing my Grinch-sized heart:
But then a new report came out that he decided to abandon his hockey movie, Broad Street Bullies, in favor of working on a new movie. And get this, it's in the vein of The Devil's Rejects!
"I'd been working on this hockey film for over two years," Zombie told the News 3 in New Zealand. "It took so much research and work, and I was literally sitting with someone going, 'You know, I have this other idea...' And I said the idea and they go, 'We'll make that!' And I put together a one-line pitch, because I didn't want to go to pitch meetings and do all that. I'd call them on the phone and go, 'Here's my idea, blah blah blah,' and they're like, 'We're in!' So you slave over something for years and it's still difficult, and you say some crazy thing off the top of your head and they say, 'Where do we sign?' And that turned into a weird bidding war. And that became the next film."
