Eli Roth Talks Trailer Trash

Director seeking coconut shells, knights who say "Ni!"

In what may be a cinematic first, director Eli Roth is using the trailer for a movie that doesn’t exist as the inspiration for his next project.

Roth’s fake trailer for Thanksgiving was one of the most talked-about bits of this year’s bloody Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez double feature, Grindhouse — and as it turns out, Roth had so much fun teasing Thanksgiving that he decided to assemble an entire feature out of fake trailers. He announced the project, titled Trailer Trash, earlier this year. Now Roth tells Bloody-Disgusting:

Trailer Trash is not a horror film, it’s a comedy. It will be very R-rated and completely insane, and I’m producing it with Mike Fleiss (who I did both “Hostel” films with), and writing it with my friends Jeff Rendell (my “Thanksgiving” co-writer, who also played The Pilgrim), Noah Belson (my co-creator on “The Rotten Fruit,”) and my brother Gabe, who’s collaborated with me on everything I’ve ever done.

I want to make a film like “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” which I consider to be the greatest achievement in the history of cinema. The best part is I get to shoot some new THANKSGIVING scenes, as well as other holiday slasher films I’ve always dreamed of making but never would because they’d completely ruin me. I can’t wait to shoot!

Roth confirms that MGM will be releasing Trailer Trash on August 22.
