Rob Zombie's CHUD?

UPDATE: Rob Zombie's management apparently informed STYD and Bloody-Disgusting that he is NOT associated with a remake of C.H.U.D. -- and yet several JoBlo readers informed me that Zombie mentioned his interest in it back when he was promoting his HALLOWEEN remake. So maybe Zombie and his management don't talk a whole lot about his plans. Your guess is as good as ours, at this point.

November 7th, 2007: Now that he's finished slaughtering wallets and memories with his vilified version of an actual horror classic, is rocker-filmmaker Rob Zombie turning his quivering focus on an 80s back-rack favorite?

Zombie has apparently been planning a remake of the cheesy creature feature (and John Heard's finest work) C.H.U.D., according to Billboard and verified by the freakazoids at Dread Central. The original movie (not to be confused with the movie website) is an acronym for Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers, alternately called "Contamination Hazard Urban Disposal" in the movie, which is essentially all the synopsis needed for the whole flick.

Specifics on the new version are unknown, but judging from Zombie's past storytelling proclivities, the new CHUDs will be violent foul-mouthed white trash losers who were forced underground by society, becoming a community of hungry flesh-eating toxic mutants. That Rob Zombie, he shore do love them thar white trash types, a-hyuck!

It's assumed the remake will ignore the comedic sequel, CHUD II: BUD THE CHUD. Schlock helmer Tim Cox (of watchable Sci-Fi Channel originals like LARVA and MAMMOTH) was previously planning a CHUD remake, but he's now working on the black comedy MISS NOBODY.
Extra Tidbit: According to Wikipedia, "chud" is also a slang term for transsexuals.
