Rob Zombie to Direct The Blob Remake


This is definitely the week for Rob Zombie fans to come together and celebrate their favorite singer/writer/director/producer. With Halloween 2 hitting theaters this Friday, Rob Zombie is yet again signing on to direct another remake. According to Variety Magazine, Zombie will write, produce and direct a remake of the 1958 horror flick The Blob. Zombie intends to “make it scary” and completely change the look of the all-too-familiar-jelly-like blob. It “might have been scary to audiences in the 1950s, but people would laugh now” said Zombie. It is rumored that the remake will be supported with a $30 million budget, similar to the budget of the recent blockbuster hit District 9. Zombie plans on getting the project rolling after his new album release and tour this fall.
