Rob Zombie's The Lords of Salem
 
Haunted Movies partner Jason Blum unveiled plans for the company’s next picture, The Lords Of Salem, to be directed by ROB ZOMBIE from a script by Zombie. Set in modern-day Salem, the film involves the demonic return of a 300-year-old coven of witches.

This is the third entry in a new horror slate deal between Haunted Movies and Alliance Films. The first picture to come out of this partnership is Insidious, written and directed by the original Saw team of James Wan and Leigh Whannel, and starring Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne. Insidious recently premiered in the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto Film Festival on September 14 and immediately was the subject of a bidding war, which was won by Sony Pictures Worldwide, who will handle the release of the film later this year. The second picture is The Bay, helmed by Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson and currently shooting in South Carolina.

Octane, IM Global's genre arm, is handling international sales on the Haunted Movies slate, including on The Lords Of Salem.

Zombie has experienced great commercial success as the writer and director of five feature films, and as one of the defining rock music icons of his generation. He’s been nominated for 7 Grammys and has sold over 15 million albums worldwide. His film credits include the cult smash House of 1000 Corpses (Lionsgate 2003) and its landmark sequel The Devil’s Rejects (Lionsgate 2005), the animated film The Haunted World of El Superbeasto (Film Roman 2009), and the record-breaking blockbuster re-imagining of John Carpenter’s Halloween (Dimension 2007), along with its sequel Halloween 2 (Dimension 2009), which gave new life to the franchise.

Haunted Movies is a partnership between Jason Blum, Steven Schneider, and Oren Peli, the same team behind the box-office phenomenon Paranormal Activity (Paramount 2009) and Paranormal Activity 2 (set for release by Paramount this October).

The Lords of Salem will be produced by Blum, Schneider, and Peli, Zombie, and Zombie’s producing partner Andy Gould. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones of Automatik will executive produce

Definitely interested to see this. His movies are always good.

Sounds like it'd be pretty sweet.

I'm happy he isn't doing another Halloween movie. So my hopes are slightly higher because of that.

Should be good. House of 1000 corpses and devil rejects were good. Halloween remake was amazing but the sequel sucked

It really wasn't. The first half hour was interesting. The rest was a shot-for-shot re-shoot, standard slasher fare. Very dull.

Haven't watched the sequel yet.

'The Devil's Rejects' is still his best movie. Although I love '...Corpses' too.

He needs another movie as good as Rejects. Which would basically mean stepping out of the horror genre, because that movie is basically a really brutal contemporary Western.

Halloween ruined that franchise.* The whole point of Michael Myers is that you can't reason why he's such a brutal killer. Zombie gave him a tough childhood. Stupid,
stupid, stupid.

*the franchise was already ruined, but still

As a piece of cinema it work well, and was probably the best part of the movie. But I agree, as part of the base concept of Halloween it was inconsistent.
