Eli Roth Updates on The Green Inferno and Cabin Fever Remake

Published

The Green Inferno

Eli Roth is spinning a handful of plates at the moment with both directorial efforts and production ventures soon headed our way. This week he’s provided big ole updates on a couple of those projects so read on for the latest in the world of Eli!

In an interview with IGN, Roth first opened up about cannibal flick The Green Inferno, revealing that it’s pretty damn close to release, though legal issues are still being ironed out.

Trust me when I say there are no less than four lawyers from different companies on conference calls and email chains every single day trying to work this out,” said Roth. “I was hoping to have it resolved today or by Monday so we could do something to hopefully have it out this summer. That’s what everyone’s working towards. To have it out August or September. But I was 90 days out from a release, there was a trailer and posters in theaters, and it got pulled. So please don’t hold me to anything, but trust me when I say everybody is all over it working it out.”

We’re at the one-yard line, but I’ve also been there before so I don’t want to say anything, but I just thank everyone for their patience and understanding,” he continued. “And it really helps when people tweet ‘Please release it, please release it’ – it keeps the fire burning, but everyone is working to resolve it.”

Roth also spoke about the upcoming Cabin Fever remake in the same interview, clearing up the rumors that it was going to be a shot-for-shot affair.

They came to me exactly a year ago and said, ‘We want to remake Cabin Fever using your original script,’” he noted. “You’ve got to realize that from an egotistical point of view, I wrote Cabin Fever when I was 22 years old. Right out of university. And for six years everyone told me, ‘This is an un-makeable piece of shit.’ So the fact that the same script would get made twice and that 20 years later, 20 years after I originally wrote it, it got sent around Hollywood and people were reading the same dialogue. I looked at it as like staging a play – as an experiment I just wanted to see how it would turn out. So I came on as one of the executive producers.”

I saw the cut and thought that what Travis [Zariwny] did was so smart – he kept the original script, but he changed the deaths so all the kills are different. You don’t know how they’re going to come. I was watching it and he didn’t tell me that he did that and I was so happy he did – because nobody wants to see a re-do that’s the same thing that they already know. So he leads you in one direction with the audience thinking that they know what’s coming, then puts a fantastic spin on it. And it looks awesome – it’s a really fun movie. I’m happily surprised at how it’s turned out.”

This unique Cabin Fever remake is finished and presumably ready for release, though a date hasn’t been set. So for now, as with The Green Inferno, we sit back and wait.

Giallo Makes A Comeback With Crystal Eyes

Published

on

The giallo genre has somewhat fallen off the radar in recent years, but that’s all about to change with the new Argentinian film Crystal Eyes (original title: Mirada de Cristal). Set in 1985, the film’s about a series of murders taking place in the glamorous and colorful fashion world, so it sounds like a true giallo throwback.

Crystal Eyes was directed by Ezequiel Endelman and Leandro Montejano, and stars Silvia Montanari, Anahí Politi, Erika Boveri, and Claudio Armesto. It screened at both the Mar del Plata International Film Festival and the Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre Film Festival, and received a great audience reception at both. We were sent the trailer for the film along with the poster and a bunch of lobby cards, which we proudly present below.

Investigate The Paranormal In The X-Files: Deep State Mobile Game

Published

on

“The X-Files” franchise will turn 25 next year, and what better way to celebrate than with the launch of a new video game? That’s right, the mobile game The X-Files: Deep State will be released in February 2018, and, in the style of the show, will feature a story about aliens and government conspiracies. The events of the game will take place in the year 2010, between seasons nine and ten of the show.

The X-Files: Deep State is being developed by Creative Mobile Games and will be published by FoxNext, and as with the majority of mobile games these days, will be free to play with in-game purchases.

Meanwhile, season 11 of “The X-Files” TV series will premiere on January 3, 2018. Which may be its last hurrah, because I dread to think what Disney will do with the franchise if they ultimately do end up purchasing 20th Century Fox.
