During a roundtable interview with The Hollywood Reporter, director David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, I Heart Huckabees) reveals that Eli Roth took a liking to one of his horror screenplays, and could end up developing it.
“I wrote a couple of things that someone might make, Eli Roth may actually do one, I wrote a horror a few years ago… It’ll be coupled with Eli Roth, that’s exciting to me,” he revealed. “Cause I had to write to support myself. So I wrote a horror for producer Colleen Camp a horror film that I thought was interesting. And Eli thinks its interesting, I think he’s going to make it more interesting… I don’t wanna say anything more, I’ll let Eli talk about it.
Roth has returned with his bold and violent cannibal horror The Green Inferno, opening in 2014 from Open Road. He’s also still producing great product, like Ti West’s The Sacrament, releasing through Magnolia Pictures in 2014. The question is, will Roth be directing or producing the said script, and what’s it about? Color me intrigued!
