Rob Zombie tackles The Blob next

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Friday, August 28, 2009

On the day that his sequel to Halloween opens in theaters, news breaks that Rob Zombie's next movie project will be a remake of another classic genre film - The Blob.

Zombie has already started writing the screenplay for his new Blob film and plans on directing and producing the movie. He's eyeing a spring 2010 start to filming as well, right after he finishes his tour in support of his new album.

The original 1958 movie starred Steve McQueen as a teen who has to convince adults that a man-eating jelly-like creature from outer space is eating up the residents of a small town. The movie got remade in 1988 and director Chuck Russell (The Scorpion King) did a pretty good job (from a screenplay by Shawshank Redemption's Frank Darabont) of making the newer Blob scarier and more gross than its predecessor.

Zombietold Variety that he's a fan of the original film but he also wants to reinvent the creature for a savvier generation used to seeing darker monsters and bloodier scares. "My intention is not to have a big red blobby thing, that's the first thing I want to change," he said. "That gigantic Jello-looking thing might have been scary to audiences in the 1950s, but people would laugh now. I have a totally different take, one that’s pretty dark."

A producer from the first movie, Jack H. Harris, is getting a producing credit on the Zombie film. The project is happening at Dimension Films, the same studio Zombie's made his two Halloween films at.

"I'd been looking to break out of the horror genre, and this really is a science fiction movie about a thing from outer space," Zombie added. "I intend to make it scary, and the great thing is, I have the freedom once again to take it in any crazy direction I want to. Even more than Halloween, where I had to deal with accepted iconic characters like Michael Myers and Laurie Strode. The Blob is more concept than specific storyline with characters, so I can go nuts with it."

-Variety.

I am down for this! The original was good and I thought the remake was pure cheese with horrible, horrible acting!

People give Zombie shit but he reminds me of the older type of horror directors like Tobe Hooper, Wes Craven, Carpenter and those types. Mainly Hopper though.

The Blob needs to be updated like he said and I will be in the theatre watching.

I keep my standards low, that way im never dissapointed

I thought Russell did an awesome job remaking it back in 1988 but I kinda gave up hope on him ever doing a legit sequel with the nutty priest.
