Rob Zombie will write, direct and produce “Broad Street Bullies,” a film about the mid-1970's Stanley Cup winning Flyers, reports Deadline.com.

Zombie, the former White Zombie musician who became a successful horror filmmaker with “House Of 1000 Corpses” and “Halloween,” tells the website that he has the rights to the Flyers story and the full support of the Flyers organization.

“The backdrop of the turbulent year of 1974 is perfect for this ‘stranger than fiction’ sports tale,” Zombie told Deadline.com’s Mike Fleming.

“The great Rob Zombie making a drama feature film about the Broad Street Bullies is exciting and thrilling for all of us! I look forward to seeing it,” said Flyers great and team exec Bobby Clarke when contacted by Deadline.com.

We are working to get additional information from the Flyers organization. Last year HBO debuted an hourlong documentary film also using the "Broad Street Bullies" name.
