If there ever was a combination of minds made to create the sickest, most disturbing TV series it’s Rob Zombie and Bret Easton Ellis, who have come together to recreate one of the most notorious crimes in American history.
The two have paired up to put together a 10-hour series on Charles Manson and the Manson Family Murders of 1969. With Ellis in charge of script writing and Zombie in the directors chair, the project is already on its way to becoming a classic piece of film that will have even the most dedicated horror junkies on the edge of their seats.
Author Ellis, who is also working with rapper Kanye West on a film, is known for creating the psychopath character Patrick Bateman in the 1991 novel and later movie, American Psycho. Zombie is known for his horror flicks like House of 1,000 Corpses and its sequel, The Devil’s Rejects, not to mention his 2007 remake of Halloween and most recent effort, The Lords of Salem.
While Variety reports that while the final project has not been given the green light by Fox, who are supposed to be supporting it, Zombie seemed to say differently with a post on his Instagram account. The picture is a screenshot of an article detailing the story on Rolling Stone’s website with the caption “If you haven’t heard working with Bret Easton Ellis on this 10 hour epic story. #robzombie #charlesmanson.”
Rolling Stone reports that the story will be told from changing points of view, leading up to the murders and after them.
As with most projects of this nature, everything is in the early stages of filmmaking and a release date is still under wraps, but whenever this hits screens we’re sure it will have been worth the wait.
