Many of us believe that the future of horror lies in the hand of a select few. Those select few include one Eli Roth the director of Cabin Fever and Hostel. Unfortunately, for someone considered so important to the genre, Roth hasn’t exactly been burning the candle at both ends with high end projects. In fact, Roth hasn’t been behind the camera since 2007 when he directed Hostel: Part I. That’s a span of five years for those with below average math skills.
Eli Roth will be welcomed behind the camera in late 2012 with The Green Inferno, a film he co-wrote with screenwriters Christopher Woodrow and Molly Conners.
We know little about The Green Inferno. Really, we know nothing. Roth is tight lipped about the story, but he did have this to say, “I’ve had an amazing few years producing, writing and acting, and am very excited to get back in the director’s chair. I’ve been working on this idea for several years, and was inspired by filming in Chile and cannot wait to get back. Worldview backs my vision and believes in me, and is giving me the support I need and the freedom to take risks and make something daring and terrifying.”
Sounds good to me. Although we have appreciated Roth’s producing duties on The Last Exorcism and we are more than a little interested in his Netflix series Hemlock Grove, it is still great to get news that ‘The Roth’ is behind the camera shooting an original vision.
