According to Mike Fleming of Deadline.com, Rob Zombie’s next directorial project will be “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 the script while on his upcoming concert tour circuit, and will shoot next year.
The film was put together by Haunted Films, the company run by the“Paranormal Activity” team of Jason Blum, Steven Schneider and Oren Peli.
“What excited me most was Jason saying, ‘You can have total control over the script, casting and final cut,’” Zombie told Deadline.com. “I said, ‘I’m in.’”
