It seems like just yesterday we were all shocked by the unexpected commencement of production on 3 From Hell, the sequel to Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects. We’ve been inundated by cast announcements that combined for a veritable whos-who of indie horror icons. Proving that Zombie is a filmmaker with a concrete vision and the skills to get shit done, shooting has already wrapped.
Sid Haig, Bill Moseley, and Sheri Moon Zombie will all be coming back (from the grave), reprising their roles as the Firefly Clan. As the production wound down, Moseley had nothing but love. Here’s what he said in a Facebook post:
“Exhausted but happy, Rob Zombie masterpiece, 3 from Hell, in the proverbial can (nowadays I guess it’s in the hard drive). Great time last night, got all the shots we needed before we picture wrapped on the Valuzat movie ranch in dear old Santa Clarita, and now the trucks are packed and rolling, the actors all changed out of their wardrobe & makeup and off to new adventures, the sun’s up and I’m heading down the highway, my spirit animals, the Doobie Brothers, filling my head and heart with enough rhythm and cheer to get me back home to Los Angeles. It’ll probably hit me in a day or two what we did, the enormity, the intensity, but meanwhile, I’m going to eat a lot, sleep a lot, brush em like crazy (Beach Boys lyric). One thing I can say, when this movie comes out, your guys’s mindsies are gonna be big time blown! Thanks for your thoughts & prayers (haha), Otis D”
Since Zombie clearly works with speed and fury, I’m sure we can expect a trailer and release date in the not-too-distant future. Stay tuned for all 3 From Hell related news as details emerge.
