With The Green Inferno in the can and making the festival rounds, what does Eli Roth have up next? Well, he'll have a hand in Beyond the Green Inferno, a sequel directed by Nicolas Lopez. After that? Who knows… But the director of the upcoming American Hustle, David O. Russell, says he has a horror script he penned in Roth's hands.
In addition to American Hustle, Russell is the director of The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook. In an hour-long roundtable discussion with The Hollywood Reporter, he revealed the following:
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. Because I had to write to support myself…I wrote a horror [film] 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.
I'd actually be curious to see what a Russell-penned script is like. More as it develops!
