Eli Roth Takes a People Staffer Swimming with Baby Blacktip Sharks and Stingrays

28 June 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For a full week, I dove in the Pacific with everything from a pack of Lemon sharks to a single 17-ft Tiger shark, but the moment we jumped in the water with stingrays, I was beyond spooked. This experience should have been a piece of cake, especially given the last few days of intense diving, where I literally could have lost my life to a shark, but if I never have to see another stingray I'll be ok with that. Our Discovery Channel Shark Week crew couldn't have disagreed with me more. From Shark After Dark host Eli Roth (who »

Watch: Film Director Eli Roth and a People Staffer Come Face-to-Face with a 17-foot Tiger Shark

23 June 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As a brand new diver, jumping into the ocean in search of a tiger shark can be a very daunting task. For one, the tiger shark comes second only to Great Whites in attacking humans. But still, there I was in the French Polynesian islands with the Discovery Channel and Eli Roth about to go in search of one. It was just a month earlier in New York City, when my editor asked if I wanted to go diving with sharks in Tahiti for Shark Week. Without hesitation I jumped at the chance, but now looking directly at a 17-foot tiger shark headed my way, »

Watch: How a People Staffer Survived Diving with Sharks!

22 June 2016 6:05 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

" When I sat down for a casual lunch in New York City with my editor, the Discovery Chanel head of PR, and Philippe Cousteau (yes, the Cousteau, (his grandfather is the legendary under water explorer Jacques Cousteau,) the last thing on my mind was going swimming with sharks for Shark Week. But, before we finished the guacamole and chips I had agreed to do exactly that. One month later I was a certified open water scuba diver, clinging to a rock 60-ft underwater in Tahiti, while a 17-ft Tiger shark loomed inches above my head. Now my experience with sharks »

Eli Roth Will Direct Bruce Willis in Death Wish Remake

20 June 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this year, Eli Roth signed onto, then quickly departed, the long anticipated big screen adaptation of Meg. Upon exiting the giant killer shark movie, the acclaimed horror director wasn't quick to tell the world what he was doing next instead. Now we have an answer. The man behind the Hostel franchise is going to reboot Death Wish with Bruce Willis already confirmed for the lead role of Paul Kersey.

Death Wish follows nice a mild-mannered liberal, New York City architect Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson), who snaps after intruders break into his home, murdering his wife (Hope Lange) and violently raping his daughter. A business trip to Tucson, Ariz., lands him a gift from a client, a revolver he uses to patrol the streets when he returns home. Frustrated that the police cannot find the intruders, he become a vigilante, gunning down any criminal that crosses his path. The public finds this vigilantism heroic. »

‘Death Wish’ Remake: Eli Roth To Direct & Bruce Willis To Star

20 June 2016 11:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Director Eli Roth is best known for his gruesome horror films, affectionately and derisively described as “torture porn,” like “Hostel,” “Cabin Fever,” and most recently “The Green Inferno.” But with his last film, the sexual home invasion thriller “Knock Knock,” Roth has moved away from horror into other genre realms. Case in point: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Roth is attached to direct the remake of Michael Winner’s 1974 vigilante action film “Death Wish.” Bruce Willis is currently attached to star as the film’s protagonist.

In a recent interview with IndieWIRE’s Graham Winfrey, Roth says that he likes “originality and…when you take a classic thing and put your own twist on it. You watch a movie like ‘The Witch’ and it’s such a great, fantastic take on the classic New England witch fairy tale, and you say ‘Yeah that’s the type of movie that should be out there, »
