Eli Roth wants a ‘Thanksgiving’ franchise

Earlier this week controversial horror director Eli Roth officially announced plans to move forward on a full-length version of his fantastic faux Grindhouse trailer, Thanksgiving. “There is hope for Thanksgiving, because that one I retain the rights to, and that, I love it,” Roth told Sci-Fi Wire. “Now I’m kind of thinking maybe I should make like 20 Thanksgivings in a row, just shoot them all and just release them out of order.

“Like, do Thanksgiving 7, then Thanksgiving 4, then 5 and 6 in the theatre. People’d be like, ‘Why did 7 come out already?’ It’s like, ‘Well, it doesn’t matter. It’s just a bunch of people getting chopped up anyways. Who cares?’”

So we know Roth wants to pull a Robert Rodriguez/Machete, but when can fans expect to see any holiday madness?

“My co-writer Jeff [Rendell] just landed yesterday in Los Angeles; he flew out for the [Inglourious Basterds] premiere and so we can finish the script,” Roth told Bloody Disgusting. Even though Roth has visions of stuffed human beings dancing through his demented head, production won’t begin immediately.  “I don’t want to do it as my next film but I want to get the script finished,” he said. “The sci-fi film, Endangered Species, is what I’m doing next.”

Audiences can see Roth smacking Nazis with a Louisville Slugger in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds.
