LOS ANGELES, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- Rocker-turned-filmmaker Rob Zombie will help re-launch MySpace Film Channel with footage from his upcoming horror movie, "Halloween," before its U.S. release.
Exclusive content available through the Zombie "Halloween" profile on MySpace Film includes a video message from Zombie to the MySpace community and never-before-seen footage from "Halloween," opening in theaters nationwide Friday MySpace said in a news release Wednesday.
Best known as founder, lead singer and songwriter for the heavy metal band White Zombie, Zombie eventually began to pursue his longtime fascination with horror movies -- making his directorial debut with "House of 1000 Corpses" in 2003 and directing its sequel, "The Devil's Rejects," in 2005.
Dimension Films has announced it has signed a two-picture deal with Zombie and his longtime manager and producing partner, Andy Gould.
The agreement calls for Zombie to write and direct both titles, although Dimension didn't provide details about the films, Variety reported Wednesday. Gould will be a producer for the projects.
Zombie said the two-picture pact is a "natural step in the evolution of my film career."
