As such, fans have been clamoring for their return. And they’ll be happy to hear it’s closer now than ever!

Day 1 – mixing sound on 3 FROM HELL. Getting closer to finishing this monster. FYI our mixer is a triple Academy Award winner who has mixed everything from Star Wars to Inglorious Basterds! So it will definitely sound killer. #threefromhell #robzombie #sherimoonzombie #billmoseley #richardbrake #freethethree
3 From Hell will also see Bill Moseley back as Otis Driftwood and Sid Haig as Captain Spaulding. The rest of the cast is loaded with genre stars and I’m sure many other cameos yet to be announced.
Similarly, the release date for the film also has yet to be revealed. But we do know it’s likely 3 From Hell gets a release sometime later in 2019.
