Could Sid Haig be Reporting to the Devil’s Rejects Sequel Set?

A recent revelation might confirm that the sequel will shoot next month.

Late January, we reported that the “rejects” were gearing up for another ride in a sequel to Rob Zombie’s classic, The Devil’s Rejects. Our friends at Bloody Disgusting took things a step forward and, through their sources, confirmed that the cast could be in front of a camera as early as March. Apart from the massive fan reaction to this news, things have remained relatively quiet since.

On Saturday, however, New Jersey-based horror convention Monster-Mania had some unfortunate news to announce to their loyal fans about Sid Haig’s upcoming March appearance:

Initial reactions were that of disappointment from con attendees excited to have a chance to meet this fan favorite. However, with disappointment there is also an unconditional understanding that cancellations do happen from time to time for a working actor such as Mr. Haig, who is no stranger to Monster-Mania here in New Jersey.

The revelation also immediately triggered speculation that this announcement might have been another step forward in confirming that the wheels are about to be in motion for The Devil’s Rejects 2. This might not be much to go on but the timeline seems to match the previously-reported rumors and is worth noting, at the very least.

The sequel, rumored to be titled The Devil’s Rejects 2: Three From Hell, will be written and directed by Rob Zombie, and is presumed to include the original stars back in their iconic roles of Baby Firefly (Sheri Moon Zombie), Otis Driftwood (Bill Moseley), and Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig).

We will be keeping a close eye on this developing story. Stay tuned!
