Rob Zombie is starting to get deep into shooting 3 From Hell, his next feature film which is set to follow up his cult classic The Devil’s Rejects. Zombie has been updating the film’s shooting schedule on his Instagram profile, where he unveiled that Bill Moseley, Sheri Moon Zombie, and Sid Haig would all return as the iconic Rejects.
He also announced that cult movie legend Austin Stoker would be joining the cast. Stoker is best known for John Carpenter’s Assault on Precinct 13, where he played a police lieutenant named Ethan Bishop. It’s a role that has left a lasting impact on the exploitation genre, and clearly enough Rob Zombie took advantage of that when Stoker was cast.
The last two Rejects films each starred cult movie legends, so 3 From Hell will undoubtedly continue the trend. While we’ve already seen stars like Karen Black, Michael Berryman, Danny Trejo, and Ken Foree lend their talents – there’s surely plenty more Zombie could bring into the spotlight for this third outing. Stoker is just the beginning.
There’s still not much known about the film’s plot, but given the title, there’s definitely going to be some hellish action and horror to enjoy.
In the last film, The Devil’s Rejects…
After a raid on the rural home of the psychopathic Firefly family, two members of the clan, Otis (Bill Moseley) and Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie), manage to flee the scene. Heading to a remote desert motel, the killers reunite with Baby’s father, Capt. Spaulding (Sid Haig), who is equally demented and intent on maintaining their murder spree. While the trio continues to torment and kill various victims, the vengeful Sheriff Wydell (William Forsythe) slowly closes in on them.
