Rob Zombie Is Bringing ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ Back From the Dead, Possibly as a Prequel
The Devil’s Rejects aren’t exactly living up to their name, as Rob Zombie plans to continue their story. Bloody Disgusting has confirmed that the horror-inclined filmmaker will make a trilogy of the saga that began with “House of 1000 Corpses,” Zombie’s directorial debut; how he plans to do that remains a mystery, as (spoiler alert) “The Devil’s Rejects” ended with the eponymous clan of killers dead.

Bd notes that, “while we don’t know any of the story details, we’re expecting it to be another spinoff or possibly a prequel, being that the Firefly family is presumed dead.” In the 12 years since “Rejects” was released, Zombie has directed two “Halloween” movies, “The Lords of Salem,” and last year’s “31.”

Devil's Rejects 2 Is Rob Zombie's Next Movie?
After more than a decade, Rob Zombie is returning to the franchise that turned him into a modern voice in horror. It's been revealed that Zombie is going to make The Devil's Rejects 2 as his next directorial project. Not many details are known at the present time, but it looks like he's finally going to round out his trilogy, which started with House Of 1000 Corpses and continued with The Devil's Rejects in 2005.

In case you aren't familiar, The Devil's Rejects (arguably Rob Zombie's best movie), serves as both a spin-off and sequel to House of 1000 Corpses and takes the series in a totally different direction. The movie features the Firefly family, with Otis (Bill Moseley) and Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie) escaping a raid on their famous murder house and heading to a remote desert motel. They meet up with Baby's father, Capt. Spaulding (Sid Haig), with the

Jake Lamotta, Real-Life Raging Bull Boxer, Dies at 95
Jake Lamotta, the boxing champion whose memoir inspired Martin Scorsese's Raging Bull has passed away. Lamotta died in a Miami nursing home due to complications with pneumonia, TMZ reports. Lamotta's wife confirmed the news while another family member said that his condition has deteriorated quite a bit over the fast weeks after he was put on a feeding tube, which he kept pulling out. Lamotta's wife said, "I just want people to know, he was a great, sweet, sensitive, strong, compelling man with a great sense of humor, with eyes that danced."

Lamotta's memoir inspired Martin Scorsese and his 1980 movie, Raging Bull, which Robert De Niro won an Academy Award for his portrayal of the troubled boxer. The movie is widely considered one of Scorsese's best, as well as one of the best American movies of all time. In 1990, it was named to the Library of Congress' National Film Registry,

Beauty and the Beast Director Responds to Lindsay Lohan's Little Mermaid Pitch
Last month, actress Lindsay Lohan made headlines when she sent out a side-by-side Instgram photo that featured both the actress and the animated version of Ariel from the Disney classic The Little Mermaid. The studio is currently developing a live-action version of this classic tale, with the actress throwing her hat in the ring to play Ariel, although it may be quite some time before this project reaches the casting phase. The actress also revealed on Instagram that she wants Beauty and the Beast director Bill Condon to take the helm, and now the filmmaker has responded. First, though, take a look at Lindsay Lohan's full statement from Instagram last month.

Emmy Rossum Enlists For Liam Neeson Revenge Thriller Hard Powder

Revenge thriller Hard Powder is beginning to judder with life now that William Forsythe and Shameless alum Emmy Rossum have closed deals to star.

Per Deadline, the new recruits now join Liam Neeson – Hollywood’s rejuvenated action icon if ever there was one – for Hans Petter Moland’s Rocky Mountains-set actioner, itself an English-language remake of Moland’s own Norwegian pic, In Order of Disappearance. Frank Baldwin is on board to hash out a screenplay with the Scandanivan filmmaker, while Michael Shamberg will produce on behalf of StudioCanal.

Details on how Forsythe and/or Rossum factor into the plot remain few and far between; so far, the only logline confirms Neeson as Nels an “upright snowplow driver in a glitzy ski town whose life is turned upside down when his son is murdered by the powerful local drug kingpin.
