After his “Crow” project failed to get off the ground, Rob Zombie may get a little help from Madonna in stepping back into the film ring.
Madonna may co-produce “The Legend of the 13 Graves,” a horror film that Zombie is negotiating to write and direct.
The film’s plot centers around a group of road-trippers traveling through America who wind up encountering a suitably sick and twisted family.
While Zombie’s previous film experience includes conceptualizing and animating the psychedelic scene in “Beavis And Butt-Head Do America,” this will officially mark his writing and directorial film debut. Zombie had been tapped to write and direct the third installment of “The Crow” series, which has since fallen by the way-side. He does however have a string of video directing credits that date back to his White Zombie days, and recently added to it with his clip for “Living Dead Girl.”
If the Zombie horror film does comes to fruition, Madonna and her
partner, Maverick Records president Guy Oseary, are expected to co-produce the movie for Madguy films in conjunction with New Line Cinema.
Production is expected to begin later this year.
