With most horror films these days finding creepy and scary happenings in the most innocent and regular of settings—usually at home—Eli Roth wants to take audiences on a trip with his next effort, "The Green Inferno." In fact, he wants to drop horror fans right into the middle of the jungle and watch what happens when a group of young people get in way over their head.

Eli Roth The Green Inferno
Eli Roth has, for better or worse, fenced himself in as a writer and director of brutal horror pictures, notorious for inflicting severe bodily harm on his cast of frequently privileged innocents. With "The Green Inferno" dropping in just a few months (check out the trailer here), Roth is—after the poorly received "Hemlock Grove"—taking another dip into the world of television, joining some choice talent in bringing a new property to the home screen.

Eli Roth Jesus Demon
While most moviegoers found the logical and incomprehensible limits of pairing an iconic figure to a wacky occupation this past year with “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” and “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," The History Channel has spotted new potential in the idea. Once the host to actual fact-based programming, the cable network now aims to expand upon its massively successful miniseries of “The Bible," by taking the same general concepts and adding—what else?—an appropriately bizarre supernatural twist.

As David O. Russell himself admits in yesterday's THR 50-minute directors roundtable (watch it here), his post-"I Heart Huckabees" period (which included the still-unreleased "Nailed," which recently got an MPAA rating) was a fallow period as a director (he's called 'Huckabees' his least favorite film). But unlike some other filmmakers that take on works for hire or direct commercials to meet ends, Russell is also a writer. While he wasn't directing, the period was an extremely fertile time for him as screenwriter and he penned the comedies like "Grackle," "Aaron & Sara" (which is getting made by another group of filmmakers), "The H-Man Cometh" and "Silver Linings Playbook" (the latter of which got made obviously, and was a massive success).

The feeding frenzy that is the backstage wheeling-and-dealing at a major film festival has come to Toronto, and bobbing up from the churning waters are a number of intriguing bodies... We hear from our friends at Hitfix that CBS Films has nabbed “The F Word,” not (sadly?) the feature-length Gordon Ramsay movie we've all been waiting for, but rather a “(500) Days of Summer”-esque rom-com, starring Zoe Kazan and Daniel Radcliffe, and word around the fest has been pretty positive by those who've seen it. It's directed by Michael Dowse ("Fubar," "Take Me Home Tonight") and also features Rafe Spall and “Girls” star Adam Driver.

TIFF Review: Eli Roth's Cannibal Horror Tale 'The Green Inferno'

When Eli Roth first appeared on the scene a decade ago, he looked like he might just be the savior the horror genre was looking for. A wave of hype preceded his debut "Cabin Fever," thanks to a raucous reception at TIFF Midnight Madness, a seal of approval from David Lynch and from Roth himself, who name dropped "Evil Dead" and "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" as influences and promised a return to the glory days of '70s/'80s horror. In the post-"Scream," pre-"Saw" early aughts, that seemed like a hell of a good proposition for most horror fans. When the film was released the following year, it couldn't help but come as a bit of a letdown (especially when held next to the aforementioned classics) but by that point, Roth had already gotten his audience in the door. Perhaps sensing he had made his audience a promise he didn't fully deliver on, he pushed things further with 2005's "Hostel," a truly scary and original horror premise though it was not without its issues, at the very least it seemed as if Roth was reaching for the brass ring of making a truly great horror film and inching a little closer towards it.

Review: ‘Aftershock’ Is Like ‘Piranha 3D’ Meets ‘The Impossible’

Eli Roth was hailed by none other than genre demigod Quentin Tarantino as “the future of horror” following his debut feature “Cabin Fever,” a grotesquely inventive chiller about a flesh-eating virus that has its way with a group of youngsters out camping in the woods. But since then, Roth hasn’t really lived up to the promise. He made two terrific “Hostel” movies (produced by Mr. Tarantino) but then drifted off the map, appearing as an actor in further QT adventures (“Death Proof,” “Inglourious Basterds”) and producing some forgettable schlock (“The Last Exorcism,” “Man with the Iron Fists”). With “Aftershock,” he makes a returning bid for the title of “the future of horror,” producing, co-writing and starring in a movie that uneasily mixes real-life tragedy with B-movie theatrics, using the 2010 Chilean earthquake as the backdrop for a movie that’s equal parts “Piranha 3D” and “The Impossible.”
