Ex-White Zombie frontman Rob Zombie is going to leave his mark on the year 2005, with a new album boasting a range of the industry’s finest musicians and a new film or two set to be released sometime later this year.

Music-wise, Zombie is writing material for his new album and has enlisted the help of several renowned artists including Josh Freese (A Perfect Circle), Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit) and John 5 (ex-Marilyn Manson).

Two years after his directing debut “House of 1000 Corpses”, Zombie will also be back in 2005 with his next horror instalment, “The Devil’s Rejects”.

The film is described as a “horror western” and will contain the original twisted family from “House of 1000 Corpses” – including Zombie’s wife Sheri Moon as Baby Firefly.

Unlike “House of 1000 Corpses” however, Zombie has decided to step back from composing the soundtrack and leave that up to Tyler Bates – responsible for “Dawn of the Dead”. The “Devil’s Rejects” soundtrack will comprise retro classics by the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers.

As well as his horror project, Zombie is also working on his first animated film based on his own comic book character “El Superbeasto”. He is aiming the film for an adult audience, and believes it will warrant an R rating.
