ROB ZOMBIE Discusses His Next Directorial Project In New Interview

Rob Zombie recently spoke to Billboard.com about his next directorial project — "The Lords Of Salem", a thriller set in contemporary Salem, where the inhabitants receive a demonic visit from a 300-year old coven of witches. Zombie will write and direct the film in conjunction with producers of the hit "Paranormal Activity". "They came to me and wanted to work together," Zombie told Billboard.com. "I didn't even have an idea at the time. They were like, 'If you want to make a movie, if you have an idea we will give you complete control over casting, the script, the final cut of the picture — everything. You never heard that. Nobody hears that. Everything's a battle, but these guys were like, 'That'll be our deal with you.' And I was like, 'Great!' "

Zombie expects to being production in late March or early April. He's also hoping to involve his current band in the film's soundtrack. "I've been thinking about the music in this movie early, early on," he told Billboard.com. "We'll probably do the score this time out — not rock music, but a score. I know I want music to play a large role."

"The Lords Of Salem" will be produced by Blum, Schneider, and Peli, Zombie and Zombie's producing partner, Andy Gould. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones of Automatik will executive produce.

A deluxe edition of Zombie's latest album, "Hellbilly Deluxe 2", arrived on September 28. It contains three new tracks called "Everything Is Boring", "Michael" and "Devil's Hole Girls And The Big Revolution", plus an alternate version of "The Man Who Laughs", a brand new video for "Mars Needs Women", a live version of Alice Cooper's classic "School's Out" performed with Cooper, and a 30-minute DVD featuring a tour documentary.
