Next Remake for Rob Zombie - 1958's 'The Blob'   

August 28, 2009 It was already remade back in the 1980s, but nevermind. Rob Zombie, remake master, is set to redo it again!

From today's Variety:

After reviving the "Halloween" franchise, Rob Zombie will next reinvent "The Blob."
Zombie will write, direct and produce a remake of the 1958 horror classic that launched the career of Steve McQueen. Production will begin next spring.

Zombie's deal to make "The Blob" his next film comes as Dimension opens "Halloween II," the Zombie-directed sequel to his 2007 hit "Halloween."

In the original "Blob," an object from space crashes into a field, containing a red blob-like substance that absorbs the humans it contacts and grows exponentially. While Zombie was a fan of the original, he's formulated a decidedly different take that he would not reveal.
