Rob Zombie To Make Film About The Philadelphia Flyers

In an artistic 180, Rob Zombie will take a break from splatter films to write, direct and produce a film based on the Philadelphia Flyers. The film will take place during the 1970s when the long-standing hockey franchise was known by another moniker, The Broad Street Bullies, which is also the title of the film.

Zombie told deadline.com that “Each character involved is more outrageous than the last” and ” the backdrop of the turbulent year of 1974 is perfect for this ‘stranger than fiction’ sports tale.”

The director also received a blessing from the hockey club, including senior vice president and former Bully Bobby Clarke, who told deadline.com, “The great Rob Zombie making a drama feature about the Broad Street Bullies is exciting and thrilling for all of us.”
