The Kidd here...
While it's been cool to see Robert Rodriguez develop the MACHETE series from a fake trailer made for GRINDHOUSE, the one I've really been hoping to see become something is Eli Roth's THANKSGIVING. There's been plenty of talk of one day it getting put together, but so far it hasn't come to fruition. That may be about to change.
Talking with Behind The Thrills about his Goretorium haunted attraction, Roth was asked about THANKSGIVING and whether or not we'd ever see it happen. His response:
"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."
Looks like we're one step closer to having the stuffing scared out of us if this writing partnership can generate a good script.
Now onto lobbying for the feature-length version of WEREWOLF WOMEN OF THE SS...
