Can a Singer/ Songwriter / Horror Director Do Justice To A Legendary Comedian? You Bet Your Life!
THE HEYMAN HUSTLE has confirmed published reports that Rob Zombie is working on a film based on “Raised Eyebrows: My Years Inside Groucho’s House” the memoir of Steve Stoliar, a Marx Brothers superfan who worked as Groucho‘s personal secretary and archivist during his final years. Oren Moverman will write the screenplay. Zombie will co-produce alongside Andy Gould and Cold Iron Pictures’ Miranda Bailey and Amanda Marshall.
“I have been a huge Groucho Marx fan ever since I was a child and have read countless book on the comic legend, but after reading the book Raised Eyebrows, a totally new perspective on Groucho’s life emerged,” Zombie stated in an interview posted today. “I immediately saw this project as Groucho’s Sunset Boulevard and knew I had to bring it to the big screen. It is a sad, funny and very dark tale of a one of Hollywood’s greatest stars final years.”
Zombie has paid homage to Marx in his work before. House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects feature an evil clown named Captain Spaulding, named after Groucho’s character from the 1930 film Animal Crackers.
Set in the 1970s, the book also includes appearances from Groucho‘s brothers Zeppo and Gummo, and contemporaries like Mae West, George Burns, Bob Hope, Jack Lemmon and Steve Allen.
