Roth has been working on a treatment with writing partner, Jeff Rundell, and seems to have cracked the story. Roth told Behind The Thrills:
"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."
Machete and Hobo with a Shotgun, the other fake trailers to be made into films, were a lot of fun and managed to successfully extend the trailers content into feature-length, including most of the original scenes from the trailers.
I'm excited to see what Eli Roth can do with a maniac going on a rampage during the Thanksgiving holidays and, if the blood and nudity seen in the trailer are anything to go by, we could have a modern take of one of my favourite genres of film – 80’s slasher horror.
