Well fiends, we can all stop speculating. The rumoured sequel to Rob Zombie’s favorite freaky family, The Firefly’s (as they first appeared in House of 1000 Corpses, and the fan-favorite follow-up, The Devil’s Rejects) is happening. And by happening.. I mean like.. right now.
Only 20 moments ago Rob Zombie shared a picture from behind the director’s chair of the new film, titled 3 From Hell. And, if there’s still any speculation as to whether this is indeed a sequel to the Firefly Family saga, let me quash those rumors now. I present – the hashtags:
It’s all true! Day One shooting Three From Hell! The murder and madness continues. #robzombie#sherimoonzombie#billmoseley#thedevilsrejects
And if we are to trust hashtags (we are, and do) Sheri Moon Zombie and Bill Moseley will be reprising their roles as Otis and Baby, respectively. No word yet on whether Sid Haig will return as the lovable, lothable Captain Spaulding. As for the plot of the film, we can only assume that as The Devil’s Rejects ended in a hail of gunfire, this film will be a prequel of sorts.
Zombie’s last stint in the director’s chair was with 2016’s Halloween Horror, 31. He’s also been quite busy with his music career, only just last week announcing a co-headling tour with Marilyn Manson, “The Twins of Evil: The Second Coming Tour” with dates kicking off this summer.
