  • Rob Zombie's possible next project: Broad Street Bullies (201?)

    Just when we thought we had Rob Zombie: The Filmmaker all figured out, along comes a new project to throw us all a curveball (or a hockey stick in the face, as the case may be). Zombie is apparently in the process of lining up a new movie that will find him breaking away from horror and moving into the realm of sports — hockey, to be exact. Don’t expect this to be your typical sports drama, however. The movie, tentatively titled Broad Street Bullies, will focus on the 1970s Philadelphia Flyers, a team that essentially won a Stanley Cup by beating the crap out of their opponents. Something tells me Zombie’s genre roots will still serve him well here.

    According to Deadline, Rob Zombie will write, direct and produce the film, and has the full support of the Flyers organization behind him. He is describing the tone of the film as “Rocky meets Boogie Nights” and also had this to say about it:

    “Each character involved is more outrageous than the next… The backdrop of the turbulent year of 1974 is perfect for this ’stranger than fiction’ sports tale.”

    The story of The Broad Street Bullies was previously captured in an HBO documentary of the same name. Michael Dowse’s recent film Goon also delivered some amped up violence on its way to becoming the best hockey movie since Slap Shot. I don’t think it’s ridiculous to think that it may have been part of the inspiration for Zombie to do Broad Street Bullies. Either way, Kevin Smith better hurry up and finish Hit Somebody, as his competition is getting stiffer by the minute. What do you think, can Rob Zombie pull off a decent hockey movie or is this just crazy talk?

    Though very odd, this sounds very promising. Can't say more right now then only, that I am interested in it.

                This sounds about as entertaining as a prostate exam.

                  Good idea, wrong, wrong, WRONG director. Hand that shit to the guy who made Bull Durham, or something. I don't mind Zombie, but this should be way the fuck off of his radar.

                    Didn't know about this till Zombie was on Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia talking about this film. Scares me to death as a Flyers fan that he's gaining control of the project. I can only imagine the worst 70's songs to show up in the soundtrack.
