In case you were desperately holding out hope for another film in the “House of a 1000 Corpses” series, you may want to place you optimism elsewhere. It looks like you won’t be seeing the Firefly family anytime soon.
In an interview with Fangoria (and shared by Shock Till You Drop) Rob Zombie discussed the possibility of directing a new film in the “House of a 1000 Corpses” series. It turns out that he actually has a new idea to further the franchise, but he might not get the chance to do it. Here’s what he had to say:
I’ve always thought I’d like to make another movie, because I love the characters, and I have an idea I think is solid for a third one – an idea that would make sense. The problem is, I don’t own the characters now. They’re owned by Lionsgate, and they just don’t have any desire to do anything. So it isn’t me not doing it because I don’t want to; I don’t have the ability to get it done.
Now I really want to know what his idea is. Is it a prequel? A sequel? A mixture of both? I would love to know where he would’ve taken that series. And while he says that Lionsgate doesn’t seem interested in making a new film, that doesn’t mean the idea is dead forever. Lionsgate is still doing smaller horror projects, it might be a matter of time before they circle back around for another Rob Zombie film. So maybe you don’t want to give up all hope, just temper your expectations.
What would you like to see done with the Firefly clan? Where would you take a sequel? Let us know in the comments.
