Rob Zombie to direct The Lords of Salem

The Lords of Salem will be written and directed by Rob Zombie. He’s said that story is about what unfolds when an group of witches plague modern-day Salem. What attracted Zombie to this script was that he has been given total control over the project including casting, and the final cut. This is a far cry from what he had when working with the Weinsteins and Dimension. It was working on the Halloween films where Zombie says the battles were draining and that by the time he got his way, he no longer cared anymore.

When responding to rumors of his work on The Blob remake he had this to say “ I wanted to break away from anything related to preexisting material…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. “
