Eli Roth and David O. Russell aren’t too people you’d immediately think would work together, as the creator of the likes of Hostel seems a long way from someone who’d make Silver Linings Playbook. However in a THR Roundtable, O. Russell has written a movie Roth may direct.
O. Russell says, “I wrote a couple of things that someone might make, Eli Roth may actually do one, I wrote a horror a few years ago.”
He adds, “Well 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. It’s emotional, it’s also… we’ll see. It’s also…I don’t wanna say anything more, I’ll let Eli talk about it.
He also has another script in the works, saying, “I also wrote a supernatural… sort of a time thing, that again is out of my genre. You would probably be better at it than me.”
Unfortunately there’s no more news on what either film will be, so we’ll just have to wait and find out.
