Eli Roth Talks “Species,” “Thanksgiving”

“Hostel” filmmaker Eli Roth says he’s a month away from finishing the script for “Endangered Species”, the sci-fi feature that would mark his return to directing says the trades.

Appearing at the Morelia International Film Festival, Roth added that he is also penning a script for the horror flick “Thanksgiving,” which originally appeared as a faux trailer for Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s “Grindhouse.”

The hope of the filmmaker is to shoot the project back-to-back with ‘Species’ going first. Roth is also set to produce the martial arts film “The Man With the Iron Fist” with rapper-turned-director Robert Fitzgerald Diggs (aka. RZA).

While a third “Hostel” feature is in development, Roth is not involved in any way.
