Recently we reported that Eli Roth (Hostel Part:II) wanted to produce a new film called Trailer Trash that would consist of a bunch of Fake Trailers, Including extended versions of Thanksgiving and Edgar Wright’s Don’t. Although we weren’t sure if the film would actually ever be produced, with all the talk and news happening, there actually could be a good possibility that this project is really going to happen. What’s more, another article from timeout.com popped up again today talking about more directors who want to be involved. Ahhhh, the madness has begun!
According to timeout.com, I caught up with writer/director Eli Roth earlier today to record our 'Hostel: Part II' podcast which should be live on Monday. While chatting, he spoke about his eagerly anticipated adaptation of Stephen King's 'Cell', but he also let slip news of another project that we haven't hitherto heard of. Here's what he had to say on the subject:
'I'm going to do a whole movie of fake trailers called 'Trailer Trash'. There was a great response to my 'Grindhouse' trailer 'Thanksgiving' and it's the most fun I've ever had shooting. I've spoken to other directors like Robert Rodriguez and Edgar Wright and they're all going to get involved and do trailers. I want to do a film like a Monty Python movie or 'Borat' or 'Jackass' – just totally silly completely ridiculous and fun and over-the-top.'
Anyone who has seen the 'Thanksgiving' trailer knows that Eli isn't exaggerating when he uses the words 'completely ridiculous and over-the-top', and if 'Trailer Trash' is able to maintain that mad mood for the duration, I for one will be there on opening day.
