Rob Zombie (Halloween) has lined up his next movie, an original story entitled ‘The Lords of Salem’. Zombie will write the script during his next concert tour and shoot it sometime next year. The film is set in contemporary Salem, where the inhabitants receive a demonic visit from a 300-year old coven of witches.
“I wanted to break away from anything related to preexisting material,” Zombie said. “The remake train is getting pretty tired now and when I made Halloween, everybody complained, either that it was too much like the original or too different. I like that people either love or hate what I do because it’s better than being in the middle, which means forgettable. But when you do an original premise, they take it on face value and after three years of not being able to win on Halloween, I just couldn’t go through that again.”
