Eli Roth Confirms ‘Trailer Trash’ Date, New Details!

After Eli Roth’s faux trailer, THANKSGIVING (watch it), stole the show in Dimension Films’ Grindhouse this past April, Roth confirmed rumors that he was working a feature length film entitled Trailer Trash. Not much was revealed other than it would be a full-length film consisting of fake movie trailers that all tie together. Today Roth confirmed that MGM will be releasing the film on August 22 and sent in a little bit more. Read on for the skinny.


Eli Roth writes into Bloody-Disgusting:

“…that’s the date (August 22, 2008)! TRAILER TRASH was inspired by the two days we filmed “Thanksgiving,” which was the most fun I’ve ever had filming anything.

Trailer Trash is not a horror film, it’s a comedy. It will be very R-rated and completely insane, and I’m producing it with Mike Fleiss (who I did both “Hostel” films with), and writing it with my friends Jeff Rendell (my “Thanksgiving” co-writer, who also played The Pilgrim), Noah Belson (my co-creator on “The Rotten Fruit,”) and my brother Gabe, who’s collaborated with me on everything I’ve ever done.

I want to make a film like “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” which I consider to be the greatest achievement in the history of cinema. The best part is I get to shoot some new THANKSGIVING scenes, as well as other holiday slasher films I’ve always dreamed of making but never would because they’d completely ruin me. I can’t wait to shoot!“
