This film sounds like it will be a bit different than Roth’s other directorial efforts, however, as he describes it as the result of an ambition to make “a classic psychosexual thriller.”

Deadline reports that Reeves will be “a happily married family man who’s left alone for the weekend. Two beautiful girls show up at his house, and turn his life upside down.”

“I had a window before I promote Green Inferno, and I wanted to make a movie like Roman Polanski or Paul Verhoeven made when they were young, a classic psychosexual thriller that’s not a horror movie, but would have everyone on the edge of their seats. Getting Keanu is amazing, he’s a fine actor who is perfect for this. I feel I can have this movie ready for Toronto if I need to, and he’s catching a plane tomorrow and we’ll be fitting him for wardrobe right away.”



The universe has again known what I wanted even before I knew I wanted it! I am still reeling from that "psychosexual thriller" phrase and once I get here, to WINM, its what axie posted?
Let's just say I am finding this super exciting!

Correct. It linked to Deadline. Just shared the one I had read first. Production to start in Chile, April 14th. Anyway, like the sound of a little psychosexual drama/horror.

Edit: I'm not using google alerts. Just ran across it by chance, today. :D
yeah...hot, hot, hot.

I am very afraid now. The comments on that deadline spoke of a movie from 1977 called Death Game that is the same. I looked it up...

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075921/plotsummary?ref_=tt_ov_pl

A businessman whose family is away on his birthday picks up two young girls. He takes them to his house, where they seduce him. Afterwards, however, they tie him up, torture him, trash his house, and then kill a delivery boy.

And this Sondra Locke name keeps keeps popping up as actress and now exec producer of this new one.

I'll have to look but it sounds rather apropos still. So he's not the baddie. Seems like it would be fun all the same - still nothing is certain until it's released. Right?

Why scared? The name Sondra Locke rings a bell too.

Read the bio, she's an actress from the 70's who is now 70.

I guess she's been producing and knew this story pretty well so she jumped onboard?

I don't want him tortured any more. I'm still traumatized by 47 Ronin.
BUT if it's hot, I can make an exception. I mean, it's only pretend after all...

Ah ok. Well the movie still sounds interesting. His role sounds quite masochistic. Hm. It sounds like it has potential to be fun, a little camp, a little unsettling.

Well, this movie will be filmed and out soon. So no waiting around forever for the answers to the questions. That is good news. I do better when I have less information when I see the movie first time. And of course I have a abiding trust in what roles Keanu picks and chooses.

eargh.

I've been kind of creeped out by Eli Roth ever since that time he engaged in internet sex chats with underaged female fans, getting them to send him naked photos. They were pretty enthusiastic about that, but still. Abuse of fame and teenage desperation. :/

but curiously enough, hearing that summary of the 1977 film made me a little more okay with this, opposite of ARYA's reaction. I generally seem to do fine when it's men being tortured by women, regardless of who the men in question are, whereas I find the opposite to be traumatising, especially when sex is involved.

... the only way I would ever go near an Eli Roth movie is this.
*skahes head*
the universe is up to pranks this year, it seems :D

and armchair psychologist here, but does it look like he's really trying to shake off his 'hero' persona? ;)


just bring them on, K. I'll be watching. always.

Their films are considered as masterpieces, oppressive with a distressed atmosphere.
This is the kind of movies I hardly watch more than once or not at all. IMO, these movies are weird, kitsch and perverse LOL

Well then, Keanu really goes to dark and disturbing roles now.

Quite unexpected, I mean it was not planned or mentioned earlier but very exciting to have a new movie with Keanu (and already this year)
