Eli Roth To Possibly Direct David O. Russell Horror Screenplay


During a director’s roundtable interview with The Hollywood Reporter, David O. Russell, the Oscar nominated writer/director best known for films like The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook, revealed that he wrote a horror script to possibly be directed by Eli Roth.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Russell talks about the hard days following I Heart Huckabees, which was a box office bomb. The director apparently had to write just to eat, and one of his scripts was a horror one that Roth got his hands on. Here’s what he had to say about it, “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. Cause I had to write to support myself. So I wrote a horror 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.”

Sounds intriguing and awesome to me.  Eli Roth is currently busy with the second season of Hemlock Grove and a sequel to The Green Inferno, so who knows when or if he’ll get around to this.  All we can do is wait and see what Roth has to say about it.
