The Good, The Bad & The Nerdy for January 23, 2018
Rob Zombie is rumored to be aiming for a March production start on his next movie, a sequel to his 2005 horror hit The Devil’s Rejects. Allegedly titled The Devil’s Rejects 2: Three From Hell, the film is said to continue the story of the Firefly clan — Sid Haig as Captain Spaulding, Bill Moseley as Otis and Sheri Moon Zombie as Baby — who we saw go down in a torrent of bullets at the end of the first film. It’s not clear whether Zombie plans to resurrect the Firefly trio from the dead in some kind of supernatural fashion in the new film or has found a way to explain that they survived the original movie’s climactic shootout.
Ed Helms tells Cine Pop that there are no plans for a fourth Hangover movie. “I’d say the chances of a fourth movie are between zero and zero.” Guess that means Doug has a GPS device of some sort now.

Remember how Peter Jackson transported viewers to Middle Earth in The Lord of the Rings? He’s hopes to do the same for World War I. Jackson is reportedly taking archival footage from the war and digitally restoring it to show what life was like in a war zone. “We have made a movie to show the experience of what it was like to fight in this war,” Jackson said in a video discussing the film. “We don’t talk about strategies, battles or the historical aspects of the war. We just talk about the social experience, the human experience, of being in the war. I’ve never heard these interviews before, and they talk about it in a way that’s surprising.” The film will premiere during the London Film Festival in October and then will be broadcast on BBC.
