At long last, horror guru Eli Roth is getting behind the camera for a feature version of Thanksgiving, his long-gestured spinoff based on a mock trailer that Roth made for the Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez Grindhouse (2007) film, reports Deadline.
The news comes on the heels of a report that Tim Miller will be coming in to assist Roth on his Borderlands reshoots for Lionsgate so Roth can focus on setting the table for Thanksgiving.
“The Thanksgiving trailer presented the gory teaser about a pseudo movie in which a slasher makes his own carving board out of the inhabitants of a Massachusetts town that makes a big annual fuss over the annual turkey day,” recalls the website. “One of the pivotal scenes involved Roth himself, separated from his head while in the throes of passion with a date in a convertible.”
Shooting will begin in March with a script by Jeff Rendell, with Spyglass behind it. Roger Birnbaum and Roth are producing.
Spyglass, as you might recall, has revived the Scream and Hellraiser franchises, both once owned by Dimension Films.
Watch for casting news soon and prepare to have the stuffing scared out of you…
