If you thought you saw the last of the Firefly Family in Rob Zombie's infamous flick The Devil's Rejects, think again. Zombie's upcoming movie, 3 From Hell, picks up where Rejects left off.
The 2005 film ends with police gunning down remaining Firefly Family members Spaulding, Baby, and Otis. Apparently, the Rejects didn't die in the barrage and instead spent the years biding their time. The actors behind all three original Rejects will reprise their roles as the ruthless and sadistic killers. Attempting to follow one of Zombie's best films a decade-and-a-half later sounds like a tall order. But according to Zombie and members of the cast, 3 From Hell delivers the goods. Well, more the bad, but you get the point.
Although the long awaited 3 From Hell trailer, released June 10, 2019, does not reveal an official premiere date, it does suggest fans of the series can expect the film to debut by the end of the year. With an overlay of '80s camp, the trailer gives us our first look at the Firefly clan back together and more menacing than ever before.
According to Rob Zombie, 3 From Hell directly follows the events of his 2005 film The Devil's Rejects. It will make for a curious chronology, considering Rejects ends with police killing the film's three main baddies, Baby, Otis, and Captain Spaulding. Some suspect supernatural elements play a part in 3 From Hell, as the title implies a return from the dead.
Sig Haig, Bill Moseley, and Sheri Moon Zombie all reprise their roles from the original film. Though their characters appear to die in the finale of The Devil's Rejects, they've turned up again in promo shots like the one above, featuring Baby in a "Free Baby" shirt - which is available for purchase, naturally.
On top of a stellar supporting cast including Emilio Rivera, Danny Trejo, Kevin Jackson, Wade Williams, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Pancho Moler, Daniel Roebuck, David Ury, Sean Whalen, Austin Stoker, Dee Wallace, Richard Brake, Bill Oberst Jr., Dot-Marie Jones, and Tom Papa, the film will feature several "bizarre cameos," according to Zombie.
Zombie revealed the first cameo in an Instagram post with Chaz Bono. In February 2019, he announced that Rocky Horror Picture Show star, Barry Bostwick, will also appear in the film. Zombie claimed that, "As a huge fan of Rocky Horror it was a blast to have Barry join the cast."
