Exclusive: Rob Zombie Approached for Heavy Metal


ShockTillYouDrop.com‘s Managing Editor Ryan Rotten is down on the Georgia set of Rob Zombie’s horror sequel H2, seeing all sorts of cool stuff with the new Michael Myers, played by Tyler Mane.

While down there, Rotten learned from long-time Zombie producer Andy Gould that the musician/filmmaker was approached by David Fincher and Kevin Eastman to direct a segment of their proposed revival of the animated anthology Heavy Metal, doing “something that could fuse his story with his music.” Having some experience directing animation with the still-unreleased The Haunted World of El Superbeasto and a segment on MTV’s “Beavis and Butthead”, Zombie was interested, but hasn’t heard anything since first being approached.

The last update on the project came last September when it was reported that Sony had picked up the Fincher and Eastman project after Paramount decided not to make the movie.
