The first ever images have made their way online from Aftershock, an earthquake thriller scripted by Cabin Fever and Hostel‘s Eli Roth, Nicolas Lopez & Guillermo Amoedo.
The plot revolves around an insane asylum on an island, where the inmates escape during the quake. The first stills are jam-packed with chais and gore.
As Deadline previously reports, it’s the next “Eli Roth Presents” film, and it marks the English-language debut from director Nicolas Lopez. His last two films, Que Pena Tu Vida and Que Pena Tu Boda, were the highest-grossing Chilean films of 2010 and 2011. Roth most recently produced The Last Exorcism, a microbudget film that grossed $70 million worldwide.
Roth and Lopez wrote the story together, inspired by the latter’s experience when an earthquake devastated Chile in 2010. The film is four weeks into production in Chile. In his first big acting role since Inglourious Basterds, Roth plays the lead. Among the other cast is Selena Gomez, who was in Chile doing a concert and came over to do a cameo. Lopez’s frequent collaborators Ariel Levy, Nicolas Martinez and Lorenza Izzo also star, along with Natasha Yarovenko, Andrea Osvart and Miguel Asensio. Check out more stills at /Film:
