Rob Zombie Set to Remake The Blob

The Blob's 1958 movie posterDespite hope that Rob Zombie gravitate towards original projects, the musician-turned-director has recently announced that his next venture is to re-make the 1958 horror film The Blob.

Already set to begin production this upcoming spring, the news came shortly before Zombie’s Halloween II was killed at the box office.
