Rob Zombie Is Serious About House of 1,000 Corpses Musical [Exclusive]
Could Rob Zombie add the Broadway musical creator to his CV? As crazy as it may seem, the musician and director really plans to transform his first film House Of 1000 Corpses into a scene. This idea emerged during an interview with Larry King last year. Although it may seem like something wild, the rock star and the director might have mentioned, Zombie would totally consider doing it for real.
I recently had the chance to talk to Rob Zombie in the honor of his new film 3 From Hell that will be released in theaters for only three nights next week . During our conversation, the subject of this musical House of 1,000 Cades Broadway was discussed. Here is what he had to say about it.
"Oh, I would totally consider doing that, because it's something that I think really lends itself to that, because this movie, in particular, is so theatrical. where you have everything, from Spider-Man to Beetlejuice, to The Addams Family as a Broadway play, I have not done anything to make it happen, but it's still a problem for me. "
While Rob Zombie makes it clear that no progress has been made in this proposed project, he is certainly serious about the prospect. Echoing his previous comments on the subject, there are many Broadway shows, or at least those that have been, that could potentially pave the way for something like this. While bringing the Firefly family on stage would certainly be a bloodier venture, it is nevertheless easy to see where it comes from.
The House of 1,000 Corpses marks Rob Zombie's transition from the best rock music icon salesman to horror filmmaker. But the transition has been a bit chaotic, to say the least. The film was shot in 2000 for Universal. Yet they finally put it aside because of violence and graphic content. It took several years before Zombie bought the horror movie rights at the studio itself. Lionsgate finally stepped in to distribute in 2003. This was successful and led to a sequel, The Devil's Rejects in 2005 and the next trilogy finale, 3 From Hell .

All that to say that Rob Zombie has worked so hard for this film to happen. So why not dust Dr. Satan, Captain Spaulding, Baby and Otis for big, bloody musical antics? It will be necessary to see if Zombie will find the time to concretize this. Meanwhile, 3 from Hell will perform in cinemas across the country on September 16, 17 and 18. Those interested in discovering the latest Zombie movie will be able to visit Fathom Events for tickets.
