Eli Roth Filming The Transforming Cloverfield Big Budget PictureS

Horror director Eli Roth is getting chatty about his next scifi project which doesn't involve a virus, aliens or robots but has a Transformers and Cloverfield vibe. Excuse me, what?

I know most of you are split on Eli Roth, but I'd like to start out saying that I am a fan of the man. For the jokes in Cabin Fever alone. That being said, I don't know if I can get behind this bastard-child-of-Michael Bay movie, especially if it's PG-13, which there have been numerous rumors about. I want blood in my Roth science fiction, and he knows how to deliver it. Roth says he'll be directing the $80 million science fiction disaster movie after he finishes up his Thanksgiving murder movie. Our new scifi villain is supposedly:

It is not aliens or robots or a virus - it's a little more grounded. But when people hear it they are going to be like ‘That is going to be insane!'.

I hope so Roth because we've been hearing about this monster invasion for sometime now and it is time to start filming already, which will supposedly happen this fall.
