Director Eli Roth Ditches R for PG-13


Eli Roth, the director of the “Hostel” movies and Cabin Fever, is aiming for a family crowd with his next project.

Reuters says Roth is two weeks away from finishing a script for a sci-fi action film inspired by the mainstream hits Cloverfield and Transformers.

“This will be my first big-budget, PG-13, mass-destruction movie,” he said Wednesday. “I went total chaos and pandemonium.”

He declined to detail the plot ahead of a “big announcement” next month.

“I feel like I pushed the violence in R movies about as far as I can push it. I feel like I’m bled out. I wanna switch it up,” added the 36-year-old.

“Everyone I know has been saying ‘When are you gonna do a movie my kids can see?’ And finally, I’m gonna make a movie that 13-year-old kids can see.”
