Who remembers that fake trailer for Thanksgiving that Eli Roth directed back in 2007 for Grindhouse? Well, it appears that the talk that Roth would be turning that trailer into a full-length movie are true! In a recent interview with Behind The Thrills, discussing The Goretoreum, Roth let out some details regarding the movie. Already the fake trailers for Machete and Hobo With A Shotgun have been turned into full-length films and Roth is now letting us know that Thanksgiving is next in line. Roth will team up with Jon Watts and Christopher D. Ford (Robot And Frank) to get a screenplay going for this project. He has recently worked with the two on the movie Clown, a horror film that Roth is producing.
“Dude, it’s gonna happen. I’m working with the CLOWN writers on it. We have a call scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. Jeff Rundell, my co-writer and I have a very extensive treatment. We finally cracked the story and how to make it really really scary, and the reason to do it, and I’m really excited about it. So the CLOWN script was one of the best scripts I’ve ever read, and we’re like ‘before Jon [Watts] shoots CLOWN, he has a window.’ Chris Ford, who’s movie ROBOT & FRANK just opened… Chris and John are going to write the screenplay with me and my partner Jeff, so we’ll have a screenplay soon.”
Roth expects to have a draft soon, but at the moment it is unclear who will direct, if not Roth. Now, all we need is some news on Don’t being made into a movie right? Maybe it’s just me on that one.
