Haunted Films – the new production outfit from Jason Blum, Steven Schneider and Oren Peli (aka the Paranormal Activity team) – is teaming with Rob Zombie for The Lords of Salem.
The title is culled from the song track of the same name featured on Zombie’s “Educated Horses” album. Zombie intended to create a “Lords of Salem” band or comic book with Steve Niles. Neither came to fruition, but a cool animated video was created for the song, illustrated by David Hartman (see below).
Zombie is going to write and direct the film which is set against the backdrop of modern day Salem, Massachusetts where 300-year-old witches haunt the town.
