Rob Zombie To Direct Groucho Marx Memoir Adaptation | Film News
Rob Zombie, known as a heavy metal musician and horror filmmaker, has turned his attentions away from Michael Myers and Corpse Houses, as he has announced his next venture to be an adaptation of Steve Stoliar’s book Raised Eyebrows: My Years Inside Groucho’s House. The book (and in so, the film) is based upon Stoliar’s memoirs of being Marx’ secretary during Marx’ active years, and chronicles the years up to his death.
This choice of director comes as a shock to most, considering his dark and morbid previous filmography, however Zombie is determined that he is the man for the job, claiming that his interest in the book and his long-serving love of Groucho Marx makes him perfect for the job. Zombie is currently directing and producing 31, a horror film containing evil clowns that take hostage of carnival workers in a place named Murder World. Filming wrapped for 31 in April 2015, meaning that it could be a while before the Marx biopic Raised Eyebrows becomes a reality, but it’s nevertheless exciting in its’ recent conception.
