Even though Eli Roth is starting to develop himself as an actor (Inglourious Basterds) and a director of other things besides just horror (with Endangered Species), he still loves horror, and he's been producing films in that genre recently as well. He has an exorcism film called Cotton that is shot and finished. Variety reports that Lionsgate just picked up the US rights to the film, which will be called The Last Exorcism. On top of that, Roth just closed a new deal with StudioCanal and Strike Entertainment to produce another psychological horror/thriller called The Other Woman. Wait till you hear what Roth has to say about it.
The Other Woman, also written by Cotton co-writers Huck Botko and Andrew Gurland, is about a scorned mistress who makes a film for her ex-lover. That's it? Oh no, there's more. Roth says the film will delve into "the worst nightmares of those who have had extramarital affairs, and the sickest fantasies of those who have been scorned." Bam! Sounds pretty intense now, eh? Shooting is already set to start in late spring with Botko and Gurland directing (they last directed Mail Order Wife in 2004). I know not everyone likes Eli Roth or his movies, but The Other Woman sounds pretty damn interesting. I wonder who they'll cast?
