Rob Zombie Inks Deal for Horror Novel

Rock star and movie director Rob Zombie has sold The Lords of Salem, a novel based his upcoming horror movie by the same title. Novelist B.K. Evenson will help write the book, based on Zombie’s script for the film about “a nightmarish world where the sins of Salem are paid for in today’s blood.”

Hachette Book Group’s Grand Central Publishing division will publish the book next March. The film comes out in April 2013. David Vigliano from Vigliano Associates negotiated the deal with executive editor Ben Greenberg.

Zombie explained why he wrote the book, in the release: “The book offers a different experience from the film since it can obviously go into much more detail … The book and the film really complement each other.”
