Rob Zombie To Helm Groucho Marx Film

Rob Zombie is stretching out beyond the horror genre with he and producer Miranda Bailey acquiring the rights to Steve Stoliar’s memoir “Raised Eyebrows”.

The book deals with the last years in the life of Groucho Marx, told by a young Marx Brothers fan who spent those years as his personal secretary and archivist and getting close to his idol as the curtain was coming down.

Other famous figures that feature in the story include Groucho’s brothers Zeppo and Gummo, along with Mae West, George Burns, Bob Hope, Jack Lemmon, S.J. Perelman, and Steve Allen.

Oren Moverman (“Love & Mercy”) will write the screenplay and Zombie is attached to direct the project which he, Bailey, Andy Gould and Amanda Marshall will produce.
