Details about the film are currently under wraps although Rob Zombie revealed in an interview with Variety that, "My intention is not to have a big red blobby thing – that's the first thing I want to change." With an estimated $30 million budget, Zombie has the freedom to do much more with CGI and/or animated Blob.
Rob Zombie is currently planning a tour to promote his latest album all while simultaneously finishing work on the screenplay for The Blob, which will blend sci-fi with horror. The film is set to follow the Halloween series as R-rated and bridge the gap between different genres.
With Zombie remaking The Blob, can we expect a new generation of "blobbers" to hit the web, writing all about a new version of the horror classic?
