Eli Roth Producing Psychological Thriller 'The Other Woman'

February 12, 2010

Eli Roth

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?

I saw Cabin Fever and was quite suprised as to how good it was but I am in no rush to see Hostel. Good luck to him.

My personal opinion is that hostel was way better than cabin fever, i think alot of people will agree with me.

It sounds good of course but I want details. Can't wait to hear the details because I want to know how he's gonna do it. He always manages to impress me with his works and skills and I love these sort of movies. Love the idea, I'm gonna want to take everyone I know that cheats to this movie and hope it really scares them But yeah, can't wait to hear more.

My apologies...keyboard went south and had to find another...I was trying to make a point about how it seems no big deal anymore to rip off stuff from other peoples films..."Endangered Species" has already been done....good damn movie too...

although there are sure to be some differences, "the other woman" sounds very similar to "alexandras project".

@1 CXabin fever was terrible, the pancake scene made no sense at all. oh and has anyone ever realized that every director ever has a picture of themselves looking at something and pointing while an actor listens? I noticed it.
