Rob Zombie Set to Remake The Blob
Despite hope that Rob Zombie gravitate towards original projects, the musician-turned-director has recently announced that his next venture is to re-make the 1958 horror film The Blob.
Already set to begin production this upcoming spring, the news came shortly before Zombie’s Halloween II was killed at the box office.
While Zombie is a fan of the original, which centers around an alien object that consumes humans on Earth, he’s not entirely keen on a carbon copy remake: “My intention is not to have a big red blobby thing—that’s the first thing I want to change. That gigantic Jello-looking thing might have been scary to audiences in the 1950s, but people would laugh now.”
With the $30 million budget model similar to District 9 and Cloverfield, the Dimension film is expected to obtain an R-rating.
