Having previously denied any involvement in the upcoming Hostel III, Eli Roth was this week confirmed as producing the third instalment of the blood-splattered franchise.
The film will take the franchise home for the first time after questionable presentations of Eastern Europe in both of the first two films.
This time round a bachelor party in Las Vegas will set the scene for the inevitably psychotic mishaps.
However, despite a change in scenery, don't expect a change in formula, with blood-soaked set pieces set to feature heavily again, albeit with less dodgy accents.
Production starts in August, with Scott Spiegel directing Michael Weiss' script, who also penned that well known horror classic Journey to the Centre of the Earth.
With a string of straight-to-DVD films to Spiegel's name, however, don't expect to see this bloodsoaked hangover on the big screen.

Eli Roth doesn't exist in my mind unless it involves the Thanksgiving movie. But, I'll end up seeing this on a lazy Sunday probably.
"You know I don't watch that shit. What's the point? They're all the same. Some stupid killer stalking some big breasted girl who can't act whose always running up the stairs when she should be going out the front door." --And your point is?
Hmm...wonder how this is going to turn out, Spiegel is good however, I love 'Intruder'.

What are you looking at Dicknose?
Why make a 3rd Hostel you can barely get 45 minutes of watchable film from the first 2

I think this is definately suffering from the law of deminishing returns. The first movie was really entertaining to me, the second was pretty terrible. It didn't resolve plot threads from the first movie in a satisfying way and it really was just a rehash of the first movie with a feminine twist to it.
I too have heard about a number of projects Roth has had on his plate at one time or another (The Box, Cell, Trailer Trash, Thanksgiving) I wish he would just direct more movies and get on with it!
