David O. Russell is a prominent hollywood figure. He’s a well-known writer/director who has created a few much loved pieces of fiction. Three Kings was a holiday staple in our home growing up. The film is extremely watchable. Eli Roth is another very prominently figure in tinsel town. Granted, for a very different reason. He’s the guy who helped birth the torture porn genre.
Russell and Roth are apparently working together on a project. At The Hollywood Reporter’s Director’s Roundtable Russell discussed a few screenplays that he written over the years that have never been produced. A few dramatic ones, which you’d expect, and then a time travel story and a horror film. On the topic of the horror film he said ‘Eli might actually direct that one’.
The combination of David O Russell and Eli Roth is an interesting one. I’m more interested about what Russell has to say through the horror film lense than Roth’s direction, but hey, count me as interested.
