Sid Haig’s Captain Spaulding gets a 3 From Hell character poster
Rob Zombie is currently chipping away at his third Firefly family film 3 From Hell in post-production, and has posted on Instagram a new character poster featuring Sid Haig as the legendary Captain Spaulding being processed by the law. Check out the new 3 From Hell character poster (the third of five) 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.
