Eli Roth is already celebrating Thanksgiving this month, and it’s just March. Sony announced today on social media that production on the slasher had begun.
TriStar Films and Spyglass Media Group will release the movie in theaters throughout the world. It is an elaboration of Roth’s fake trailer from Grindhouse (2007). (Scream).
In the feature-length slasher, Addison Rae will star with Patrick Dempsey, Jalen Thomas Brooks (as “Walker”), Milo Manheim (as “Zombies”), and Nell Verlaque (as “Big Shot”).
Rick Hoffman (Hostel), Tim Dillon, and Gina Gershon (Chucky) will also appear.
The script was written by Roth and Jeff Rendell.
Producing is done by Eli Roth and Roger Birnbaum.
According to Deadline, “The Thanksgiving trailer featured the bloody teaser about a mockumentary in which a slasher creates his own carving board out of the residents of a Massachusetts hamlet that makes a great deal out of the annual turkey day. One of the key sequences featured Roth himself, cut off from his head while having a passionate moment with a woman in a convertible. Since the original Grindhouse release 15 years ago, preparations have been made to film a full-length blood feast with Roth at the helm, but you could be excused for thinking that Thanksgiving would never arrive.
