Eli Roth Reteaming with 'Aftershock' Writers for 'Knock Knock' Horror
When we highlighted the red band trailer for The Sacrament last week, we pointed out that before The Green Inferno (hitting theaters this year), director Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever) had taken a six year break from directing. But he's not waiting so long to get back behind the camera again as The Wrap repots Roth will direct Knock Knock, a new horror film he co-write with Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo, writers on the Roth-produced disaster horror Aftershock. And of course, Roth will also produce the film, which seems to be coming together quickly with veteran actress Colleen Camp also producing.
The film will follow two young girls who show up unexpectedly at the home of a married man where they seduce him and wreak havoc on his perfect life. Sounds like a sexy version of The Strangers, but the horror angle isn't hard to surmise. Knock Knock will be a low budget film under $10 million with production slated to being in April. Roth is also still slated to direct the Dracula tale Harker at some point, but we haven't heard anything on that project in awhile. There's a part of me that may enjoy Roth when he's in front of the camera as opposed to behind it, but horror fans seem to love him. Stay tuned for more.
