The debate rages on over whether or not Rob Zombie is a talented filmmaker with his own unique vision, or if he is just a wanna-be regurgitating a mash-up of his favourite films on screen. Either way, the man continues to get plenty of work offered to him, and after returning from his most recent musical tour with Alice Cooper, he is now trying to decide what he should focus on next. A new poll on his official blog is asking fans what movie they would like to see him direct, and although a couple of the proposed choices have been previously announced, there are also a few surprises on there as well.
Last summer it was announced that Zombie had signed on to direct a remake of The Blob, and it seemed like this would definitely be his next film. However, this is only one of the options listed on the poll. The other possibilities are: Tyrannosaurus Rex, Werewolf Women of the SS, and The Devil’s Rejects Pt. 2.
T. Rex is a previously announced project based on his comic book The Nail, about a semi-pro wrestler who is being chased by a Satanic biker gang. Werewolf Women of the SS, on the other hand, would be based on his faux trailer starring Nicolas Cage that played with Grindhouse. This is the first I have heard of it being turned into a feature, but it seems that Robert Rodriguez’ Machete may have inspired him to do more with it.
The biggest surprise, however, is the fact that he is thinking about a sequel to The Devil’s Rejects, which is probably his most highly regarded film to date. Some people love it and some hate it, but one thing’s for sure: it is a movie that seemed to have a pretty definitive conclusion. Which of these projects (if any) would you like to see Rob Zombie direct next?
