Zombie got the rights to the team’s story, and has the full support of the Flyers organization. He likened the tone of the tale to Rocky meets Boogie Nights on ice. "Each character involved is more outrageous than the next," Zombie said. "The backdrop of the turbulent year of 1974 is perfect for this ‘stranger than fiction’ sports tale."
Former Flyers great and team senior vice president Clarke is appropriately stoked. "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."
Zombie will produce with Andy Gould, Les Borsai and Jeremy Platt. They are tying down the financing and hope to drop the puck on this one shortly.
