Rob Zombie to Direct Movie About Philadelphia Flyers Broadstreet Bullies Era

The Philadelphia Flyers are about to featured in another movie, except this time it's being directed by someone you wouldn't think. None other than, Rob Zombie will head the project.

Rob Zombie, is directing the film called "Broadstreet Bullies", which will focus on the greatest era in Flyers history, when they took home two Stanley Cups and became one of the most feared teams in NHL history.

Zombie has the full support of the Flyers organization and received high praise from former great Bobby Clarke yesterday. Clarke stated, "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 told Deadline.com that "each character involved is more outrageous than the next" and likened the tone to that of "Rocky" meeting "Boogie Nights."

Rob Zombie is best known for his films "House of a Thousand Corpses" and "Halloween."

Jerry Sandusky's Wife Testifies At His Trial

Jerry Sandusky's wife Dorothy took the stand at his trial yesterday and denied all of the accusations of child sexual abuse. She stopped short of calling his accusers liars, but offered explanations such as the night that Victim 4 allegedly engaged in oral sex with Sandusky on the night of a Bowl Game.

"He was demanding and very conniving," she said of the victim (Victim 4), who told the story of the bowl game encounter. She offered an alternate account of that night, saying she walked in on her husband and the boy - who were both fully clothed - and argued about a banquet they were scheduled to attend.

She ultimately stressed in no uncertain terms that she had no knowledge of any alleged encounters and doesn't believe her husband was behind these terrible acts.
