I have to admit, it takes some balls to go from making movies like Hostel, which easily made Eli Roth horror’s golden boy for a while, to buckling down and actually making a movie that will esentially be a compilation of fake trailers.
Such is the premise behind Trailer Trash, which you’ve probably heard by now Roth is readying for a release in August of 2008, with cameras set to roll as early as February. He sat down with MTV recently and spilled some beans on the project.
He will be directing all the fake trailers, he says, with some possible exceptions like Edgar Wright, but he makes it very clear he doesn’t want to share. And who could blame him? I’m sure he’s got more than enough fucked-up ideas floating around that head of his to make a 90-minute run time.
Though he doesn’t give any specifics, he does say this; “don’t give the zombies pot, because then they’ll get stoned and that’ll make them even hungrier … I’m going to be doing that idea,” and damnit, that makes me laugh. Yeah, I said it.
The only other details revealed, as it were, are that there will likely be some big names in the faux trailers, and that there will be a plot to tie them all together. Keep it here for more as we dig it up!
