The folks at Bloody-Disgusting are reporting confirmation that Rob Zombie won't be directing a remake of the cult horror flick C.H.U.D.. They confirmed with Zombie's management team, who say it was just a rumor, even though it was reported on various other websites. Apparently, Zombie was never interested or was even considering doing this remake. Tim Cox was originally set to direct this, but his involvement as of now remains unclear.
The original C.H.U.D. (which stands for Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers) starred John Heard and Daniel Stern and revolved around a rash of bizarre New York City murders that seemed to be committed by these "people" that live in the sewers.
