‘Clown’ Writers Team With Eli Roth On ‘Thanksgiving’ Feast!



Bloody Disgusting reader Erik Yates tipped us off to an interview over at Behind the Thrills with writer-director-producer-actor Eli Roth, who is making press rounds to promote his Vegas attraction, “The Goretorium,” opening this September.

Hiding at the end of the chat, Roth reveals that there may finally be some turkey-f*cking in the future. He tells the site that Thanksgiving, the feature version of his faux trailer from the 2007 Grindhouse, is definitely happening.

It’s gonna happen. I’m working with the Clowns writers on it,” he tells the site referring to Jon Watts and Christopher D. Ford (Robot & Frank), the duo who came into Roth’s world after making their own faux trailer back in November 2010. “[We] have a called scheduled for tomorrow afternoon,” he adds stating that they will co-write the script with Roth and his writing partner Jeff Rendell. “We finally cracked the story and figured out how to make it really, really scary, and a reason to do it. Before John starts shooting Clown he has a window.” He expects to have a draft soon, but it’s unclear who will direct, if not Roth.

The trailer, shared below, is a slasher-themed horror pic that takes place on Thanksgiving.
