More Concept Art From Rob Zombie's Tyrannosaurus Rex
51% Motherfucker. 49% Son of a Bitch. One hell of a way to start off a post, but it should get you in the mood for hearing more about Rob Zombie's Tyrannosaurus Rex. Last month we brought you the teaser poster for the film, but no story details, since there literally are none. Since information started leaking out about the project earlier this year, Zombie has kept a very tight lip about it - not even hinting at what it would be about. Now another new concept art photo has been discovered on the official MySpace page (via SlashFilm) and a rough plot synopsis, that supposedly could be fake, has popped up as well. Apparently Tyrannosaurus Rex is about a badass wrestler / biker and is based very loosely on the comic book The Nail. Sound better now that you know what it's about?
The details about the plot and more information on the film can be found further below as well.
The short synopsis comes from Bloody Disgusting back in February. They recently updated the original post and pointed out that the MySpace page said that it wasn't based on The Nail at all, but that could be a hoax anyway, plus this situation has become a confusing mess. Here's what it's rumored to be about:
T-REX is about a wrestler named Tyrannosaurus Rex who is on the run from a biker gang from hell. Furthermore, the idea for the film is loosely based on the comic book Zombie did with Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) entitled THE NAIL.
Considering this new concept art features a boxer / wrestler and is slightly reminiscent of the cover to The Nail, it may be, as originally stated, very loosely inspired but not a direct adaptation of that comic. For now I'm going to stick with the synopsis that Bloody Disgusting first dug up, as it sounds like something Zombie would make and fits with the poster and concept art so far. Although I'm not normally a Rob Zombie fan, to be completely honest, this concept art is pretty badass so far. So much so that I'm already looking forward to this and I don't even really know anything about it. If this is indeed about a wrestler / biker with the name Tyrannosaurus Rex, I'm curious whether Zombie fans will still be interested. Any clue on who might be starring in this yet or more thoughts on if it will be any good?
