Rob Zombie has done some great movies based on mass murderers and horrific, deadly crimes.  Now, he's taking on a true story involving mass murderers and horrific crimes.

Rob Zombie has teamed up with "American Psycho" author Bret Easton Ellis (who also wrote "Less Than Zero" and "The Rules Of Attraction".) to develop a mini series based on the "Helter Skelter" murders committed by Charles Manson and "The Family".

Manson allegedly believed the killings would start a race war that would eventually bring about an Armageddon of sorts and leave him, Manson, ruling the world.

Zombie said:

“I have been obsessed with this insane story since I was a kid, so obviously I jumped at the chance to be involved in this incredible project. After speaking with Bret, I immediately realized that we shared the same vision for this epic madness.”

If anyone can speak of "epic madness", I think Rob Zombie would be the guy!  Remember the "murder ride" in House Of 1,000 Corpses?  (Careful, language is NSFW.)
