Hostel director Eli Roth preps monster sci-fi

Director Eli Roth has revealed that his next movie will be a sci-fi blockbuster.


Roth confirmed his first big-budget film has been inspired by Transformers and Cloverfield, hinting that fans can expect “lots of chaos and mass destruction”.


“I don’t want to say what [the monster is] yet. Once it gets set up, I will let everyone know. It is not aliens or robots or a virus – it’s a little more grounded. But when people hear it they are going to be like ‘That is going to be insane!'” he explained.


The Hostel director added that he is also hoping to finally shoot a low-budget, full-length version of the Thanksgiving trailer that appeared before his 2007 offering Grindhouse.


“[It will be] the sickest, bloodiest, most violent slasher movie,” he promised. “I want to make the highest body count slasher film I can.”
