In a recent feature interview with AP, Rob Zombie (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil Rejects, Lords of Salem) has revealed that not only could he be working on his first non-horror flick, a biopic on the Philadelphia Flyers and their of Stanley Cup wins in the 70’s, but he’s contemplating bringing House of 1000 Corpses to Broadway.
He said the following: “I feel like it has those elements of ridiculousness that could translate to the stage of somewhere between ‘Hairspray’ and ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’…..the characters are that ridiculous, the scenarios are that ridiculous, it just feels like that.”
This is interesting news, but I personally think it could be pretty badass. I could definitely see it on the stage with a RHPS type vibe. I mean, that movie was pretty much a showcase for his music anyway, why not turn it into a musical anyway? What do you think?
