Rob Zombie teams up with an 'American Psycho' for a Charles Manson mini series? 

If you haven't heard already, Variety officially released news [on Thursday night] that American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis and Rob Zombie – who we all know wrote/directed House Of 1,000 Corpses, Devil’s Rejects, and [the disappointing] Lords Of Salem – are officially working with a company known as "Alcon Television" to create a new project for Fox that will be about the people and the connecting  events connected to the Manson Family murder spree that took place back in August 1969. This news has been long coming, because I remember when Zombie had said that he is making a new series "that will be like, but not connected to, The Devil's Rejects". I remember when I first saw The Devil's Rejects and I felt awe, shock, [and mainly] amazement that he was willing to go this far with a 'family' that went around killing for the sake of killing; and [assuming you've seen the film: spoilers] ultimately- the 'Firefly' family got what was coming to them. Was The Devil's Rejects loosely based on the Manson murders? I couldn't tell you; but the concept is pretty similar. Therefore, makes sense that Rob Zombie would direct a [mini]series based around the Manson murders. 
[The main 'family' in The Devil's Rejects; coincidence?]

 So when are we getting this Manson Family TV show? It may take a while, as it aims to tell converging stories of people and events leading up to and then also after the murders, from shifting it's point of view. [which I assume means that we'll see the point of view of the people affected; and of the killers.] It's planned to be released as a multi-part series, but at this moment in time, it's [really] far away from receiving a green light, due to it's obvious graphic nature. I think this series is gonna be fantastic when released, especially considering my interest in the Manson killings; I just hope we're not waiting too long. I mean, I'm still waiting for Rob Zombie's Tyrannosaurus Rex [as seen below] and that was supposed to be released fucking 5 years ago! [soon, Warren.. soon.] 

{FUN FACT: Charles Manson was sentenced to death in 1971, but his sentence was then changed to life in prison when California abolished the death penalty the following year. He has since been denied parole more than 12 times!}
