Eli Roth pissed over Hostel II's failure, Cell delayed

244_roth_eli_092706.jpgEli Roth has spoken out on his blog telling us how pissed he is that Hostel: Part II is struggling in theatres right now. You know, as much as I kept ripping apart his first Hostel movie, I really do like Eli Roth and think he's a pretty cool guy. He's intelligent, got some great ideas for movies and I admire his original voice in the industry...
I want to thank all of you for your kind e-mails and incredible support for the film. However, piracy has become worse than ever now, and a stolen workprint (with unfinished music, no sound effects, and no VFX) leaked out on line before the release, and is really hurting us, especially internationally. Piracy will be the death of the film industry, as it killed the music industry, and while it makes a smaller dent in huge movies like Spider Man 3, it really hurts films like mine, which have far less of an advertising and production budget... ...What I'm saying is, this is your last chance to see one of my films for a while. If you haven't seen it, go now, because after next weekend the film will be gone from theaters. There are too many other summer movies coming in, so basically we get two weeks in cinemas, and then the film will live on DVD. I am not directing CELL any time soon, and I most likely will take the rest of the year to write my other projects. Which means I wouldn't shoot until the spring, and you wouldn't see a film directed by me in the cinemas until at least next fall. If everyone on my friends list went to see the film this weekend and brought a friend, it would make a huge difference.
There's more over at Roth's blog which you can read by clicking here. So Roth's taking a break, obviously a little disjointed over the Hostel II failure. That's cool, but don't forget to come back and do Cell, I really think your vision for the film will be exactly what's needed for Stephen King's best novel in a couple of years. source - dark horizons
