Eli_Roth_Goretorium_Banner_7_9_13

Hot off the sale of his Green Inferno, pictured below, acquired by Open Road for release this summer, horror icon Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel) has locked in his next directing gig.

TheWrap reports that Roth is set to reteam with his Aftershock co-writers on the horror movie Knock Knock.

Roth will direct from an original screenplay he co-wrote with Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoeda. Roth will also produce with Colleen Camp (Squirrels to the Nuts).

The story follows two young girls who show up unexpectedly at the home of a married man where they seduce him and wreak havoc on his perfect life.

Knock Knock, which is budgeted under $10 million, is scheduled to start production in April.

    Eli Roth’s Next Movie who?

  • Chelsea

    Awww.. For a second there I thought they were adapting the game Knock Knock into a movie.

  • haruspex

    I hate Eli Roth. He has two modes: 1 When his films do good, it’s because of him. 2. When one bombs, it’s because of PIRACY!!!!!!!!!!!

    • David

      he got bit by the same animal that gave tarantino douche-itis. cabin fever and hostal were his only two good films. after, he fell into trying to be embraced by hollywood. i’d like to think after this film tanks too it might put his arrogant coked up ass to rest. annnnnd trolling done!

  • XrabbitX

    aren’t there already two “Knock Knock” movies?

  • thornvald80

    shite director, even worse actor. he’s sort of an american uwe boll…

  • thornvald80

    “horror icon” ??!! WTF??!!

  • runcible

    Sounds like a remake of “Death Game” (1977).

  • PsyberTribe-Records

    This is a complete rip off of ‘Death Game’. My comment was removed about this from ‘THE GREEN INFERNO’ page. Just like he sucked the Italian Cannibal films up for the story and already popular cult standing in Cinema, He is presenting this stuff in the wrong way and for self-gratification. Pretty sad but The shitty thing is, He probably won’t ever get it, because all he will ever get is praise for anything he shits out. Hollywood is all about keeping turds polished!! Or in this case, grabbing something they can rape and latching on until the spirit of it is gone and people cant stand cannibal movies all together. He is a very talented person and could excel in anything he wants. Some people fly to close to the sun and fall..We’ll see.

    this is co-written with the AFTERSHOCK writers? god that movie was bad. chances are this new one will too (and i say that as someone who doesn’t hate Eli Roth).

    • PresidentObama

      As always, you’re so correct, dude! Rented that movie since it was written/produced by Eli and boy, was it fucking boring : (

  • diapers

    All fine and good, but he better goddamn well make Thanksgiving after Knock Knock.

  • Daniel

    Talentless hack.

  • mfcmk1

    I’m excited for this, and for GREEN INFERNO. I hope one day we will get Thanksgiving as a feature!

    I don’t understand all the negativity. Personally, I think Roth is a great director. I love his films, and he seems like a great guy from the few times I met him.

    • XrabbitX

      I don’t understand the negativity either. 99% of the people that say Eli Roth is shit, don’t have the balls to actually try to create something themselves.

      • Daniel

        We have the intelligence to know that we wouldn’t succeed. I wish Eli Roth had the same level of intelligence.

      • huntermc

        I’m not a Roth hater, but “I’d like to see you do better” isn’t really a valid rebuttal. 99% of us here probably couldn’t make a better song than Miley Cyrus, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t say that she sucks.

  • markajacoby

    So glad to see others finally bashing Roth. Been saying for years I never understood the adulation. Quite honestly, I don’t get all the love for Cabin Fever and Hostel… but to each their own. His movies do absolutely nothing for me and this write up leaves me feeling the same

  • Chrissie-Watkins

    If
    Green Inferno = Hostel Goes to the Jungle, does
    Knock Knock = Hostel goes to suburbia?

  • RicoThor

    Saw aftershock recently, was dreadful. Doesnt bode well for this if its the same 3 guys writing

  • joeshmo447

    I freking love eli roth, I get the hate over aftershock but the movies he directed kicked ass! Common

  • maxseed

    yeah yeah… some are good some are bad.
    but cabin fuckin fever, is gold.
