Rob Zombie's 'The Lords of Salem' Scores a Great Deal


Rob Zombie recently spoke with Billboard about his upcoming film The Lords of Salem and his deal with Haunted Films (the guys behind Paranormal Activity).

The guys behind Paranormal Activity came up to Zombie as they wanted to work with him and Zombie tells Billboard "'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!' "

Rob Zombie will also be scoring the music for Lords but it won't be rock music like his previous films so it will be interesting as well to see what sounds he will bring to our ears as well as what he brings to our eyes.

Zombie also speaks to Billboard about growing up in Massachusetts and being aware of the Salem witch trails "I always found it fascinating, so I started writing an idea about...this group of five witches that were killed back then and have come back to modern day Salem to seek revenge."

Rob Zombie is only just starting work on the Lords script and Zombie hopes it will begin production in late March early April.

What do you guys think? Are you looking forward to Zombie's next project?
