In keeping in line with that philosophy, Zombie – usually partial to directing horror films – was working on a film about hockey. “I was working on this thing called Broad Street Bullies, which was a hockey film, but that got put on the backburner because something else popped up.”
In true Zombie fashion… that film is a horror. Sometimes things never change.
“I’d been working on this hockey film for over two years, it took so much research and work, and I was literally sitting with someone going, ‘You know, I have this other idea…’
And I said the idea and they go, ‘We’ll make that!’ And I put together a one-line pitch, because I didn’t want to go to pitch meetings and do all that. I’d call them on the phone and go, “Here’s my idea, blah blah blah,’ and they’re like, ‘We’re in!’ So you slave over something for years and it’s still difficult, and you say some crazy thing off the top of your head and they say ‘Where do we sign?’. And that turned into a weird bidding war. And that became the next film.”
This is actually really disappointing. I was looking forward to this and I believe filming was supposed to begin this winter. But no such luck. Zombie has turned his attention toward another horror film, and though it doesn’t sound like BSB is completely off the table, it’s not looking good.
