Eli Roth Shoots Next Two Films Together

“Hostel” writer/director Eli Roth is planning to shoot his next two films back-to-back according to MTV News.

The first is a big budget sci-fi action film – “I don’t want to give away the title yet, because I have to make sure I own it 100%, but it’s going to be something that is really fun with lots of mass destruction. I wanted to do something along the lines of Transformers or Cloverfield that was a little more science fiction-based.”

So will there be monsters? “I don’t want to say what [the monster is] yet. Once it gets set up, I will let everyone know. It is not aliens or robots or a virus – it’s a little more grounded.”

After that comes a full-length film based off the “Grindhouse” trailer he did “Thanksgiving”. Roth says “The plan is this: I want to do a huge budget movie, but tack on three weeks to the end of it and shoot Thanksgiving,” he revealed. “I want to do an $80 million dollar movie, and then schedule three weeks at the end to quickly shoot a $5 million dollar movie.”
