House of 10,000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween, sports movie? That appears to be the progression of Rob Zombie’s directing career, who’ll next get behind the camera for Broad Street Bullies, which will document the 1970s Philadelphia Flyers, a team so rough and dirty thatRussia’s Red Army hockey squad once refused to come back out after the first period. It’s unclear how frequent Zombie muse Sid Haig will factor in…
But every team needs an irascible, eccentric coach, right?
J. J. Abrams Bad Robot production company has turned into one of the most recognized and successful out there over the last several years, which means more and more work for that creepy automaton (and you’ll probably see the logo more, too!). Two more flicks have joined the queue. Wunderkind is a 70s spy thriller teaming a young CIA Nazi hunter with a cranky old Mossad agent. Harrison Ford should probably start working on that accent. Also coming up is God Particle, which is based on an American space station who has to deal with a mysterious European spacecraft and, oh, Earth’s vanished as well. This one only has a five million or so budget, which sounds a bit on the low side for a sci-fi epic.
Mos Def and Jack Black could probably use the work, though
Chris Hemsworth just keeps adding to his pile of manly man man roles with In the Heart of the Sea. As you might have guessed from the title, this one is different because it’s on a boat- the real-life doomed whaling boat that inspired “Moby Dick”. The true story involved significantly more cannibalism and sodomy, prossibly. Hemsworth could be a number one seed to give or get on either of those, so this could get interesting.
The physique is daunting, but that hair sure is purty
