Launch Radio Networks reports: Rob Zombie will be the featured guest on the July edition of "Henry's Film Corner", a monthly program on the Independent Film Channel (IFC) hosted by singer, spoken-word artist and actor Henry Rollins. The program will premiere on Saturday, July 2 and repeat several times throughout the month. Previous and future guests include "Seven" director David Fincher, "Kill Bill" star Michael Madsen and actor Billy Bob Thornton.
Zombie will most likely discuss his second directorial effort, "The Devil's Rejects", which arrives in theatres on July 22. "The Devil's Rejects" is a loose sequel to his 2003 filmmaking debut, "House of 1000 Corpses", but Zombie told Launch it's a very different movie. "It has no relation to the first film almost in the sense that it has one consistent look, it doesn't jump around, it's a very gritty, real, bleak look," he said. "The characters are all the same characters, except we all got together and were like, 'I wanna make these characters real.' 'Cause essentially right now, they're cartoon characters. Like, let's take those and make them real people."
Actors Sid Haig, Bill Moseley and Sheri Moon Zombie return from the first film.
Rob Zombie will headline the second stage of Ozzfest 2005, beginning on July 15 in Mansfield, Massachusetts.
Zombie recently told Rolling Stone that he'll finish his next album this fall after Ozzfest is over. Among the people who have played on the record so far are LIMP BIZKIT guitarist Wes Borland, MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee and A PERFECT CIRCLE drummer Josh Freese.
