In a recent interview with CHUD, Eli Roth talked about his self-hyped pet project, Endangered Species. Speaking about the idea for this film, a mid-budget sci-fi disaster movie, the Hostel helmer had this to say:
“I can’t say anything without giving anything away!” he said. “I saw Transformers and Cloverfield and thought, ‘I have an idea for a mass destruction movie.’ But it’s going to be very different from those films. And it’s science fiction, but a little more grounded than that.”
Roth then went on to disclose just how far into the pre-production process he is with this feature: “I’ve been working on the script for the last year and a half, and meeting with the top visual effects people and doing various tests and research to find out how we’re going to make the movie in a cost-effective way,” he said before finishing up on a closed note. “But I can’t really say how we’re going to do it without giving away certain plot details.”
Along with slasher flick Thanksgiving and a remake of Tobe Hooper’s Funhouse, Endangered Species remains the most likely project to be plucked from Roth’s slate next and put into production.
