Rob Zombie will write and direct the feature film "The Lords of Salem" says Deadline.
The story is set against the backdrop of modern day Salem, Massachusetts where 300-year-old witches haunt the town.
The film title originates from the song track of the same name featured on Zombie's Educated Horses album.
