Close to a month ago, horror film/rockstar Rob Zombie announced that he would begin filming on the sequel to Devil’s Reject’s, titled 3 From Hell.
Fans were elated to hear that the long awaited sequel was finally underway. The announcement came in conjunction with the (expected) confirmation that Bill Moseley and Sheri Moon would be reclaiming their roles as Otis and Baby.
Since then, a slew of casting confirmations have been announced, so it seemed like a good time to break down all of the confirmed actors in one article.
3 From Hell (most importantly) will feature the return of Danny Trejo (Machete, Predators) and Sid Haig (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects) as their characters Rondo and Captain Spaulding. Joining the two hellions are Clint Howard (Apollo 13, The Waterboy) as Mr. Baggy Britches, Sylvia Jefferies (Halloween II) as Heather Starship Galen, and Bill Osbert Jr. (Scream Queens) as Tony Commando.
Zombie’s 3 From Hell will also star some familiar faces from the cast of 31, such as Daniel Roebuck as Morris Green, Kevin Jackson as Gerard James, and–while they have no character names yet–Jeff Daniel Phillips (also seen in Zombie’s The Lords of Salem), David Ury, and “Sick-Head the Nazi clown,” Pancho Moler.
The cast of (currently) unnamed characters also include Dee Wallace (Critters, Cujo), Dot-Marie Jones (American Horror Story, Married With Children), Richard Riehle (Office Space, Contracted Phase II), comedian Tom Papa, and Austin Stoker (Assault on Precinct 13).
Zombie is set to be the sole writer of the movie. He will be back in the director’s chair and will hopefully have a major hand in the music score of the film. No confirmation of a release date for 3 From Hell has been disclosed yet, but we’ll be keeping an ear to the ground for any new details.
Fans of Rob Zombie’s foray into genre film seem to be more excited for the Firefly clan’s return in 3 From Hell than they were for his reboot of Halloween 1&2, which have received mixed reactions from horror fans.
In the end, it may be a blessing that Jamie Lee Curtis and Carpenter have returned to focus on resurrecting Myers in a new Halloween installment. But is it fair to ask ourselves “Is Jaime Lee Curtis up for combating Myers again?” Our own Timothy Rawles takes the time to answer that question in his article about Curtis returning as Laurie.
