Horror fans will be delighted to know that Eli Roth and Ti West will be joining forces for a new film called The Sacrament. The announcement came from Eli Roth himself, via an interview with Variety. According to the Cabin Fever director, West will be directing while he handles production.
Ti West has recently gained a lot of reputation among horror fans due to his slow burn horror films such as The House Of The Devil and The Innkeepers. West has already written the script for The Sacrament, and is now getting ready to sit behind the camera. Roth stated that he has a very clear idea of what he wants to achieve:
“We want to make this Ti’s first mainstream movie, without sacrificing the quality and unflinching horror of the subject matter,” says Roth. This would suggest that his involvement will largely be designed to drum up mainstream attention in the project, rather than introducing his own gore-soaked style to proceedings.
