Do you remember Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s joint venture Grindhouse? It was an ode to old school B-movies that featured Death Proof and Planet Horror. In the beginning and middle of the films there were fake movie trailers that included Machete, Thanksgiving, and my personal favorite Don’t by Edgar Wright. Machete has already been made into a feature length film, and according to Eli Roth Thanksgiving is not too far behind.
I’ve been working on the script with my co-writer, Jeff Rendell, who plays the pilgrim in the trailer. And it’s me imitating Jeff’s voice [for the narration]. But Jeff has been working. I said that his deal is he has to work on the script while I’m promoting The Last Exorcism, and as soon as I’m done in mid-September he’s going to fly to California, we’re going to sit down, and bang out the script.
If you haven’t seen the trailer that started it all you can watch it below. It’s filled with turkeys, pilgrims, murder, the usual!
Are you excited to see Thanksgiving hit the big screen?
