While Eli Roth's next directorial effort still seems to be a long way off, the man certainly isn't resting on his laurels, and in 2012 he's busier than ever. Later this year his co-written and co-produced martial arts flick, the RZA directed "The Man With The Iron Fists" will kick and punch its way into theaters, and on the festival circuit he's got something a little different on the way as well.

Co-written by Latin-American filmmakers Nicolás López (who also directs), Guillermo Amoedo and Roth, and starring and presented by Roth as well, the disaster thriller "Aftershock" is centered around the February 27, 2010 Chilean earthquake, with the fictional story about an insane asylum whose inmates are freed during the earthquake. And oh yeah, Selena Gomez is in this too. Here's the official synopsis: In Chile, an American tourist’s vacation goes from good to great when he meets some beautiful women travellers. But when an earthquake ravages the underground nightclub they’re in, a fun night quickly turns to terror. Escaping to the surface is just the beginning as they face nightmarish chaos above ground.

Appropriately, the movie will make its world premiere in the Midnight Madness lineup at TIFF. No U.S. distributor yet, but if it can make audiences scream, it won't be too long before it's snapped up. You can check out more pics from the film right here.

    Honestly I can deal with his writing and even his directing (so to speak) but If there's one thing Eli Roth ain't good at it's acting. Gee, how awful he was in Inglorious basterds ! Just watch the scene where Kruger is on the vet's table ... he has this void look in his eyes and this ridiculous 'I'm so f**ing happy to be here' smirk on his face. That's just too much ! On the other hand Warm bodies might be interesting... although I seem to recall that 'arty existential zombie movie' has been done before.
