Last week, members of the cast and crew from Inglorious Basterds stormed the red carpet at the New Beverly Cinema to celebrate the release of their film on DVD/Blu-ray. Though just a DVD premiere, spotlights shone into the night, flashbulbs flashed, and pens scribbled on notepads. There were a few surprises - the arrival of stunt-woman extraordinaire and Tarantino alum Zoe Bell, for instance. Or the lovely Diane Krueger (Nina Von Hammersmark) arriving with a dapperly dressed Joshua Jackson on her arm.
But for the most part, the focus of the evening was the cast and crew of the critically acclaimed World War II opus. Among them, most of the titular Basterds, including: Sam Levine, Eli Roth, Omar Doom, B.J. Novak, producer Lawrence Bender and, of course, the biggest “basterd” of them all - Quentin Tarantino.
Collider grabbed a few words with some of the cast before enjoying an evening of disemboweled, »

Last night, the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles held a red carpet premiere for the DVD release of Quentin Tarantino’s World War II opus Inglourious Basterds. The premiere featured cast and crew including Tarantino, producer Lawrence Bender, and most of the titular “basterds”, including Eli Roth. Collider was there to cover the event and a full write up will be available soon. However, we wanted to let you know what Roth told us about his upcoming sci-fi flick, Dangerous Species.
“I have a sci-fi movie I’ll be directing called Dangerous Species,” Roth said. This coming on the heels of horror film “Cotton”, an exorcism flick Roth’s been producing. “We just finished the sound mix on that and it’s really scary.” Unfortunately, Roth wouldn’t provide any details about the plot of Species.
However, Roth did speak about making Basterds’ film-within-a-film, Nation’s Pride as well »

Summit Entertainment has acquired Invasion , a spec script by Ben Magid. Plot details are being kept under wraps at this time, however, we know the film opens with a wicked subway accident in Los Angeles in which the survivors (the film's protagonists) climb from the wreckage to find the, now "snowy," city in ruins. What they encounter topside is bodies, mobs of people in a state of panic and acidic "goo." The project is being described as Cloverfield -esque. Eli Roth and Eric Newman (producing partners on the upcoming Cotton ) will shepherd the project, says TrackingB.com . Interesting that Roth is getting behind it as he has his own Endangered Species flick in the works, another reportedly "alien"-themed film. Magid was one of the »
We've got another avalanche of posters to throw your way this week, collecting a decent cross-section of posters that have been recently released online for upcoming films. First up are three gorgeous one sheets for Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, and I have to say, I am loving the look of this flick. Also hot off the presses are three posters for Rob Marshall's musical and Oscar hopeful Nine that seem to play up the sex appeal (and is it just me or does Daniel Day Lewis look a little like Nicolas Cage here?). Others that are worth a look include new art for District 13: Ultimatum, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Kick-Ass, and Eli Roth's upcoming faux-exorcism documentary Cotton. What's up with that poster for The Road with the massive Rolling Stone quote on it? Who's advertising for who? Check out the rest of the »
A possessed girl. With her back broken. With blood exploding from her crotch. In what appears to be Schrute Farms. You really don't get much more creepy than that. This still from Bloody Digusting is the first look at the Eli Roth-produced (not “presented by”) horror film, Cotton, which is said to be a “Cloverfield-inspired exorcism movie.” What does that mean exactly? I’m thinking “found footage,” but if this photo is an »

I often wonder if there is anyone else out there who is as ambivalent to Eli Roth as a director or producer as myself. Sure, Roth has proven himself to be a more than capable badass with a baseball bat in Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. And he's also proven himself to be an interesting guy in the many passing conversations he's shared with Fsr staffers. But as a producer or director, he's wholly underwhelming and lacks anything resembling creativity or ambition. That is, unless you consider his dungeon of torture-porn titles to be creative. Which I don't. Enter the first still from his upcoming flick Cotton, which the chaps at Bloody-Disgusting have called a "Cloverfield-inspired exorcism movie" about an evangelical minister who turns against his religious higher-ups, participating in a documentary that will chronicle his last exorcism. In the image (seen above and enlarged by clicking and visiting the source) we see a possessed girl who has been »

If you love horror, then you've got to check this out. Bloody-Disgusting got their hands on the first photo from the Eli Roth produced exorcism movie Cotton. We first featured a sales poster for this from Cannes back in May, but haven't heard much since. Bd explains that it's "a Cloverfield-inspired exorcism movie" about an evangelical minister who turns against religion and decides to participate in a documentary in which he practices his last exorcism. Some photos have been floating around already, but this one is just crazy! At first I thought she was impaled on some spikes, but it's just the possessed girl bent backwards. Cotton is directed by A Necessary Death director Daniel Stamm and co-written by Huck Botko and Andrew Gurland, who together wrote and directed the 2004 comedy Mail Order Wife previously. This film stars Patrick Fabian, Iris Bahr, Louis Herthum, Ashley Bell, Tony Bentley, Caleb Jones, »

I seriously cannot contain my excitement after seeing the footage at the Afm this past week. Produced by Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever) comes Cotton, a Cloverfield-inspired exprcism movie directed by Daniel Stamm. The story concerns an evangelical minister who turns against religion and decides to participate in a documentary in which he practices his last exorcism. While we already brought you an early look at some stills, beyond the break you'll find the first official hi-res look at the possessed young lady in the film starring Patrick Fabian, Iris Bahr, Louis Herthum, Ashley Bell, Tony Bentley, Caleb Jones, Shanna Forrestall, Allen Boudreaux, Denise Lee, Becky Fly, Logan Craig Reid and Jamie Alyson Caudle. »
You want more "found footage" horror? You got it! Lionsgate and Lakeshore Entertainment are prepping development of a new thriller called The Vatican Tapes, about an exorcism gone awry. The story, which was conceived by Chris Morgan (Wanted, Fast & Furious) and written by Chris Borrelli (The Marine 2), involves a tape that gets leaked from The Vatican with footage of this frightening exorcism. While it's unclear if the entire movie will actually be the footage itself, this week they've announced that they've hired Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker James Marsh to direct it. Marsh is best known for the fantastic 2008 doc Man on Wire, about Philippe Petit's tightrope walk between the World Trade Center towers, but most recently he directed Red Riding: 1980, a fictionalized crime thriller about the Yorkshire Ripper murders in England. I have to admit, I really like the sound of this, but great documentary directors don't always make »
Disillusioned by years of defrauding poor believers of their hard-earned cash, evangelical preacher Cotton Marcus decides to put the record straight by producing a spectacular documentary.
A letter from Louis, a poor farmer begging Cotton's help in driving the devil off his land, gives Cotton the perfect opportunity to expose the phoniness of his ministry. But then he meets Louis' disturbed young daughter, Nell ...

We're very excited to bring you your first ever look at the Eli Roth produced horror film Cotton, which was directed by Daniel Stamm. We caught a look at the promo trailer for the flick that's being pitched as a horror film in the vein of Cloverfield and Blair Witch Project. The story concerns an evangelical minister who turns against religion and decides to participate in a documentary in which he practices his last exorcism. The footage we saw looked like Rec meets Exorcist x 500. I hope it's as good as it looks! Take a look below at some first ever stills and new details revealed at the American Film Market! Patrick Fabian, Iris Bahr, Louis Herthum, Ashley Bell, Tony Bentley, Caleb Jones, Shanna Forrestall, Allen Boudreaux, Denise Lee, Becky Fly, Logan Craig Reid, Jamie Alyson Caudle all star. »
--Eli Roth, who recently starred alongside Brad Pitt in "Inglourious Basterds," is certainly keeping busy. Speaking in Mexico at the Morelia Film Festival, Roth revealed that he'll soon be showing "Cotton" to the Sundance team for a potential January 2010 festival premiere and that he's currently busy developing scripts for sci-fi project "Endangered Species" and "Grindhouse" tie-in "Thanksgiving." (Variety)
--We already reported on this last week, but it looks like Oren Peli's "Paranormal Activity" found footage follow-up, "Area 51," will land in front of cameras next week. (via press release; check out Variety for additional details)
--It looks like a "Blair Witch Project" sequel, a proper one from creators Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez, is closer than its ever been to happening. Said Eduardo to ShockTillYouDrop, "It’s the first time that Dan and I have really gelled on an idea for a follow-up." He said that news, one way or another, »

· "Eli Roth lines up Cotton, Species" isn't just a euphemism for what happened during the filmmaker's latest oversexed message-board visit. It's the headline announcing Roth's return to writing-directing after his successful acting stint as an Inglourious Basterd. He's announced he'll be angling his new exorcism film Cotton for a world premiere at this winter's Sundance Film Festival, putting together the script for his sci-fi debut Endangered Species along the way. The Park City Albertson's will order an extra case of Kleenex just to be safe. [Variety]
"Hostel" producer-director, Eli Roth, unveiled his exciting plans at the Morelia International Film Festival. He was at the fest with Quentin Tarantino to promote "Inglourious Basterds" where Roth co-starred as Sgt. Donny Donowitz.

*** He's planning to finish the script for "Endangered Species" this month. Roth is also planning to direct the sci-fi project
*** Roth will be directing, producing, and possibly acting in "Thanksgiving"
Some exciting plans there Roth! See what »
America’s horror hopeful Eli Roth is recharging from his “Inglorious Basterds” publicity trip, and is going back to the area most comfortable for him and his fans: behind the camera. Roth is starting the push for director Daniel Stamm’s exorcism flick “Cotton” which Roth produced, as well as put the finishing touches on “Endangered Species” which is Roth’s first foray into science-fiction. More of what the future holds for Mr. Roth after the jump.
While “Cotton” is wrapped and ready to present to Sundance for next year’s submission, Roth is simultaneously putting his final imprints on “Species” and continuing to pen “Thanksgiving” - the full-length feature that audiences first got a glimpse of on the theatrical release of the Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino vehicle “Grindhouse”, which “Thanksgiving” appeared as in the form of a fake trailer between the running of Rodriguez’s and Tarantino’s films. »

The director was talking at Mexico's Morelia Film Festival. He hopes to show Cotton to Sundance in the next two weeks. The plan is for it to debut at the festival in January.
After that, he wants to finish Endangered Species and he's also writing a script for Thanksgiving. The trailer for this movie was shown in Quentin Tarantino's portion of Grindhouse. Roth wants to shoot both films at the same time.
Regarding Endangered Species, Roth said:
"I haven't been this excited about an idea since the first Hostel."
He also talked about showing the scrip to Tarantino for advice.
"Quentin is the greatest story editor you could have, and I trust him implicitly," he stated.
Roth also discussed the third Hostel movie, »
How do you follow up directing a faux Nazi propaganda film? If you’re Eli Roth, you dream up a mass destruction movie different from any other mass destruction movie to-date.
According to Variety, after the Inglourious Basterds press tour winds down, Roth will finish the script for his first science-fiction movie Endangered Species, which he plans to make with Children of Men producer Eric Newman. Roth also has the screenplay for the horror flick Thanksgiving on his plate, but Species will likely come first.
"I haven't been this excited about an idea since the first 'Hostel,'" Roth said at Mexico‘s Morelia Film Festival, where he was on-hand promoting Inglourious Basterds, which he co-starred in. Roth also directed Nation’s Pride, a fake Nazi propaganda movie-within-the-movie.

Also, he'll begin work on Thanksgiving 's script soon. »
With Paranormal Activity performing well and Eli Roth's Cotton going into production soon, it looks as if Blair Witch inspired films are still hotter than ever (shocking considering it's been 10 years already). Bloody Disgusting got exclusive word on a new horror film in development over at Lionsgate entitled The Vatican Tapes. From a screenplay by Chris Borrelli, a tape is leaked from the Vatican that displays an exorcism that goes horribly wrong. It's said to take on attributes from Blair Witch and Rec. Gary Lucchesi (the Underworld franchise, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Pathology, The Midnight Meat Train) is producing. »
