is happening

Eli Roth‘s fake trailer for a horror film called Thanksgiving was one of the highlights of both the omnibus feature Grindhouse and Roth’s own career. And for years since the debut of Grindhouse Roth has discussed making a feature version based on the idea. But we’ve heard of little forward momentum on the project in quite some time.

Now Roth says that he and other writers have broken the story idea, and will shortly be cranking out a script. Perhaps by fall 2013 we’ll finally be able to dig into a little horror feast.

Roth told Behind the Thrills,

[Thanksgiving] is gonna happen. I’m working with the Clown writers on it. We have a call scheduled tomorrow afternoon. Jeff Rendell, my co-writer on it, we have a very extensive treatment. We finally cracked the story and figured out how to really make it scary, and the reason to do it. I’m really excited about it. The Clown writers wrote one of the best scripts I’ve ever read, and before Jon Watts starts shooting Clown he’s got a window, and Chris Ford, his movie Robot & Frank just opened, Chris and John are going to write the screenplay with me and my writing partner Jeff. So we’ll have a draft soon.

As mentioned, Watts and Ford are the guys who made another fake trailer, called Clown, which purported to be a Roth film. It wasn’t, but Roth liked the trailer, met the guys, and agreed to produce a full-length Clown film. So it makes a weird sort of sense that they would be helping write his own fake trailer to feature project.

I wonder if/when he's ever going to get working on Cell. He's been linked to that for a few years now.

Apparently I should have just had this discussion with my husband when I got home from work because none of you pussies are interested.

As long as the scene with the dude banging the turkey is included I am totally sold.

what has he been up to? he had a bunch of shit come out in a short period of time and then fell off the map. i mean this should be funny and cool but i thought he was pegged as one of the big up and comers of horror.

I hope he actually casts Michael Biehn like he used him in the trailer. Also loved the Jay Hernandez cameo. Looking forward to this one.
