Eli Roth's Trailer Trash - A Movie of Only Fake Trailers!
You know when someone says that terribly clichÃ© line "the trailers are the best part!" when you go to the movies? Well now their dream will come true - an entire movie of fake trailers is apparently the latest idea from Eli Roth, director of Hostel I and Part II and also of the unforgettable fake trailer for Thanksgiving in Grindhouse. He told Collider about his plans during the Saturn Awards (full list of winners here) yesterday night, including that he's already got his friends on for making some trailers. Is this the new revolution, fake trailers?
Here's what Eli Roth had to say in regards to the idea.
"I'm going to be doing a film of all fake trailers, like Thanksgiving, called Trailer Trash. I want to make a movie like Borat or Jackass that's literally completely ridiculous, totally silly and absurd, that's just all fake trailers. I have a genius way to tie it all together so it will actually play like a movie."
"I want to do this with a budget because they have to look like movies. Literally I'll have the satisfaction because it will feel like I made 30 movies. That's the beauty of Trailer Trash - you just need good gags and good kills."
According to Roth, a few of his friends are already on board to contribute segments, including Hot Fuzz's Edgar Wright, special effects guru Gregory Nicotero and Sin City's Robert Rodriguez. Roth's got an extensive list of friends, so it's likely we'll see segments from Quentin Tarantino and Richard Kelly, too, in addition to probably a few more.
Thanksgiving 2 is just one of the films he plans to already include in the compilation, which he hopes to shoot in parts before and after he goes into production on the adaptation of Stephen King's The Cell.
I have two big questions for everyone. First, is this real and is this happening already as he says (or is it just some fun rumor he came up with to create some gossip)?! Second, would anyone actually go see this? (I would!)
