Rob Zombie has signed on to direct a remake of cult horror classic 'The Blob'.
The project will go in a different direction to the original, about an expanding alien blob devouring everything in its path.
"My intention is not to have a big red blobby thing - that's the first thing I want to change."
"That gigantic Jello-looking thing might have been scary to audiences in the 1950s, but people would laugh now.
"I'd been looking to break out of the horror genre, and this really is a science fiction movie about a thing from outer space. I intend to make it scary, and the great thing is I have the freedom once again to take it in any crazy direction I want to."
