A Monstrous Conversion?

Apparently Eli Roth, director of “torture porn” horror movies such as Hostel, has decided to turn his attention to the giant monster subgenre — and a PG-13 rating.

Yahoo! Movies reported that he was “shooting for a family crowd” with his next project.

Roth told reporters on Wednesday [23 April 2008] he is two weeks away from finishing a script for a science-fiction action film inspired by the mainstream hits Cloverfield and Transformers.

“This will be my first big-budget, PG-13, mass-destruction movie,” he said backstage at the music industry’s NME Awards in Los Angeles. “I want total chaos and pandemonium.”

He declined to detail the plot ahead of a “big announcement” next month.

    Oh I’m sure he can after the Hostel films made him so hot. That and ‘Cloverfield’ making the genre pretty hot again.
