Rob Zombie’s ‘El Superbeasto’ Acquired by Starz!

Bloody-Disgusting learned this evening that Starz! has officially acquired the rights to Rob Zombie’s animated flick The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, which means the film could go theatrical through Anchor Bay Entertainment before getting a DVD/Blu-ray release. Directed by Mr. Lawrence and Carey Yost, the film features voices by Paul Giamatti, Tom Papa, Sheri Moon Zombie, Brian Posehn, Bill Moseley, Sid Haig, Danny Trejo, Geoffrey Lewis and Tom Kenny. The 2-D animated comedy follows the exploits of a washed-up Mexican wrestler, El Superbeasto, in the mythic world of Monsterland.
