Rob Zombie recently announced that he had scrapped plans to direct a hockey movie called Broad Street Bullies in favor of a new film in the genre he’s best known for, horror. A short time later, Zombie revealed that he was also working on a new TV miniseries about the Manson Family murders with American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis. But Zombie told us that his new horror movie will come out first: “The other thing is an original thing of my own which is definitely a horror thing. It’s definitely in the vein, I think, of what fans of what I’ve done in the past would enjoy. So that one’s moving along about a million times faster than the other thing, so that’ll be the next project.”
Jon Bon Jovi is taking an active step in helping the homeless. The Bon Jovi frontman was on hand for Tuesday’s grand opening event for JBJ Soul Homes, a new housing development in Philadelphia named in the rocker’s honor. The complex, funded in part by the singer’s JBJ Soul Foundation, includes retail and office space along with 55 apartments. The residential units will provide affordable housing for people who would otherwise be homeless, as well as young adults aging out of the foster care system and other low-income individuals. JBJ Soul Homes is affiliated with Project HOME, which is also helping residents with medical care, job training, and other enrichment services.
Vince Neil is joining the ranks of rockers who are getting into the Arena Football League. The Motley Crue frontman tells “The Las Vegas Sun” he’s now a co-owner of the Jacksonville Sharks. He reportedly inked the deal to buy the team with other rockers, but his partners haven’t been named. And while the Sharks are based in Florida, Neil wants to bring Arena Football to the desert. He says it’s “a great action sport” that’s “growing in popularity,” and he thinks Las Vegas is a perfect place for a team.
Neil isn’t the only rocker involved with the AFL. KISS’ Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are celebrating the inaugural season for their team, L.A. KISS, while Bon Jovi’s Jon Bon Jovi helped establish the Philadelphia Soul ten years ago.
