The Firefly family is back in 3 From Hell set images
Musician-turned-filmmaker Rob Zombie is resurrecting his slain Firefly family for 3 From Hell, his latest horror opus currently in post-procution. Zombie took to Instagram to post new production images of stars Sheri Moon Zombie, Bill Moseley, Sid Haig and Jeff Daniel Phillips (along with the slogan “Free the three!”), all of which you can check out in the gallery below!
Zombie’s wife Sheri Moon Zombie and Bill Moseley will reprise their roles as Vera-Ellen “Baby” Firefly and Otis Driftwood, with Sid Haig also returning as the iconic Captain Spaulding. Jeff Daniel Phillips will play Warden Virgil Dallas Harper. Other members of the eclectic cast include legends like Danny Trejo (Machete), Clint Howard (Solo: A Star Wars Story), Richard Brake (Batman Begins), Dee Wallace (The Howling) and Austin Stoker (Assault on Precinct 13).
3 From Hell is the sequel to 2005’s The Devil’s Rejects, itself a sequel to Zombie’s feature film debut, House of 1000 Corpses. The three characters went down in a blaze of glory at the end of the previous movie, ending plans for a continuing series at Lionsgate, which was eager in the mid-2000s for more horror franchises. It remains to be seen when the film will arrive in theaters or how the Firefly family will return from the grave.
The Devil’s Rejects grossed $17 million on a $7 million dollar budget back in 2005, and was a tremendous success on DVD. House of 1000 Corpses grossed $12 million in 2003 after being first produced in 2000 for Universal and shelved for three years.
