Eli Roth says Thanksgiving is still happening


The Grindhouse double feature produced two of my favorite films, Planet Terror and Death Proof. The neatest thing about the entire experience, however, were the extremely creative fake trailers before the films. So now that Hobo with a Shotgun and Machete (which led to the production of a hopefully awesome sequel) have become full fledged films, eyes are on Eli Roth to see if Thanksgiving is getting its turn. 

According to an interview with Behind the Thrills, Eli Roth stated: 

“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…we’ll have a screenplay soon.”

While Thanksgiving wasn’t my favorite of the Grindhouse trailers (that honor going to Edgar Wright’s Don’t), I’m glad to see an actual film coming out of it. Since Clown is getting made too, I’m going to wait until everything comes out (except Werewolf Women of S.S, you can keep that Hollywood) and just a have an extremely long movie night. Maybe we’ll eat turkey. 

You’ll find the original very NSFW trailer for Thanksgiving after the jump.
