Might Rob Zombie be including Broadway musical creator to his resume? Loopy as which will sound, the musician and director is really contemplating turning his first film Home Of 1000 Corpses right into a stage present. This concept first got here up in an interview with Larry King final 12 months. Whereas it appeared like one thing wild the rock star and director may need simply mentioned in passing, Zombie would completely think about doing it for actual.
I not too long ago had the prospect to talk with Rob Zombie in honor of his new film three From Hell, which hits theaters for 3 nights solely subsequent week. Throughout our dialog, the subject of this Home of 1000 Corpses Broadway musical got here up. Here is what he needed to say about it.
“Oh that’s something I would totally consider doing, because it’s something that I think really lends itself to that. Because that movie, in particular, is so theatrical and so over the top, that it seems like it would work. Especially these days, where you have everything from Spider-Man, to Beetlejuice, to The Addams Family as a Broadway play. I’ve made no moves yet to try and make that happen but it is a backburner thing in my mind all the time.”
Whereas Rob Zombie makes it clear no progress has been made on this proposed enterprise, he is definitely critical in regards to the prospect. Echoing his earlier feedback on the matter, there are many exhibits on Broadway, or no less than exhibits that had been on Broadway, that might doubtlessly pave the best way for one thing like this. Granted, bringing the Firefly Household to the stage would definitely be a bloodier endeavor, however nonetheless, it is simple to see the place he is coming from.
Home of 1000 Corpses marked Rob Zombie’s transition from best-selling rock music icon to horror film filmmaker. However the transition was a bit bumpy, to say the least. The film was initially shot in 2000 for Common. But, they ultimately shelved it because of the violence and graphic content material. It sat accumulating mud for a number of years earlier than Zombie bought the rights to the horror flick from the studio himself. Lionsgate in the end stepped in to distribute in 2003. That proved to achieve success and led to a sequel, The Satan’s Rejects, in 2005 and the upcoming finale to the trilogy, three From Hell.
