Aside from directing horror films like Hostel and Cabin Fever, Eli Roth has also taken post in front of the camera in films like Grindhouse and Inglourious Basterds, not to mention producing hits like The Last Exorcism. Now the filmmaker is taking both of latter jobs on the earthquake thriller Aftershock from Chilean director Nicolás López. The film sees Roth as one of six friends dealing with the aftermath of a huge earthquake which has devastated the city around them, not to mention freeing a slew of inmates at a nearby insane asylum. SlashFilm has a first look at the film which you can check out for yourself below.
Here's the first few images from Nicolás López's Aftershock, produced by Eli Roth, via SlashFilm:
Nicolás López makes his American feature debut with Aftershock, a film he co-wrote with Guillermo Amoedo. Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever) both produces and stars in this thriller which follows a group of friends caught in the chaotic aftermath of a crippling earthquake that destroys the city around them and unleashes inmates from a nearby insane asylum. The film also stars Ariel Levy, Nicolás Martínez, Lorenza Izzo, Andrea Osvart and Natasha Yarovenko, but no North American release date has been set just yet.

Is Eli Roth going to direct a movie soon? He hasn't done one since Hostel Part II.

As much as I think he's a funny guy and charming actor, he really should go back to directing, which is what he does best IMO.

Or choose another career IMO
