ROTH UPDATES 2001 MANIACS SITUATION
Following our report yesterday about 2001 MANIACS? British distribution deal, producer Eli Roth got in touch from the American Film Market with a new photo from the movie and to let us know that 'The demand for the film has been so incredible that we closed the UK deal before the market even opened!' He further tells Fango, 'American distributors have been salivating to see the film, especially with THE GRUDGE and SAW kicking ass at the box office, but we?re not showing a frame until the film?s totally finished, which will be very soon. This week is all about international sales, and I?m psyched that fans around the globe will get to share in the every drop of blood, guts and fun. Tim Sullivan directed a kickass horror movie, and I CANNOT WAIT for fans to see Robert Englund as Mayor Buckman. He?s going to blow them away.' And for all the fans of CABIN FEVER?s Dennis, Roth also sent along a shot of young actor Matthew Helms in his costume from this past Halloween.
