Transformers Meets Cloverfield, from the Director Of HostelS

Hostel director Eli Roth is sick of doing torture-porn, and he's in the home stretch of writing a huge-budget PG-13 science fiction movie that he says is inspired by Transformers and Cloverfield. He isn't giving any details about the new project, except that it'll feature "mass-destruction" and pandemonium. (The other thing Cloverfield and Transformers have in common, of course, is the dreaded shaky-cam [TM].) Roth hasn't completely changed his tune, however: he'll still film some ultraviolent scenes, to include on an unrated DVD for his splattery fans. [FirstShowing]
