Finally, some exciting news from Rob Zombie’s Lords of Salem camp: Sheri Moon Zombie has joined the rock-and-roll witchcraft frightener. OK … so Zombie’s old lady scoring a role in her husband’s flick ain’t much of a surprise—it’s still a far more thrilling bit of casting than say Bruce Dern.
Bloody-Disgusting confirmed the casting this morning, but there’s no word on what role Sheri would be playing (but, the film does revolve around a “blonde rocker chick” who dj’s at a radio station.)
The Lords of Salem follows a 300-year-old coven of witches masquerading as a rock outfit to take over a small town. Oren Peli, Jason Blum, and Steven Schneider—the team behind Paranormal Activity and Insidious—will produce through their company Haunted Films.
Additional costars so far include Torsten Voges (the humorless giant German doc in Judd Apatow’s Funny People), Jeff Daniel Phillips (one half of the caveman pitching team for Geico Insurance), Meg Foster (They Live) and Ernest Thomas (Rog from “What’s Happening”).
