September 1, 2007
Peter Rosenberg of New York City's Hot 97 conducted a radio interview with Rob Zombie about Rob's remake of the horror classic "Halloween". Watch video footage of the 10-minute chat below.
Despite opening to mostly negative reviews, Zombie's "Halloween" is on track to gross a record-breaking $23-$26 million at the box office in the United States during the four-day Labor Day weekend, according to SlashFilm.com.
According to DailyHerald.com, John Carpenter filmed his 1978 indie chiller on a $325,000 budget. The film made roughly $47 million at the domestic box office, and still ranks among the most impressive budget-to-box office ratios in history. Zombie's studio-approved "Halloween" cost about $20 million.
Dimension Films, which is releasing "Halloween", has just signed Zombie to a two-picture deal. According to Variety, Zombie will write and direct both films. There are no further details about the projects or whether they'll be horror outings like Zombie's three movies to-date.
Zombie also told MTV.com's movie blog that his animated flick, "The Haunted World of El Superbeasto", is finally finished. He described the film as a "superhero monster sex comedy" and a "filthy adult movie," adding, "People are just not going to believe this movie exists. It is so strange."
Zombie's first-ever concert album, simply titled "Zombie Live", is scheduled for release on October 23. He'll support OZZY OSBOURNE on a fall tour that will begin sometime in October and last through December.
