Although not a fan of gore slasher films, I may have been one of the few critics who actually had some positive things to say about Eli Roth’s Hostel II. As oppossed to some other, similar films, I found Hostel II to have a very interesting subtext that could be seen as commenting on the geo-political landscape of the times.
At the time of the film’s release, there was the usual talk of a sequel being a possibility, but Roth said that he had no interest in making a third installment. All the sequel talk became moot, though, after the film’s unexpected underperformance.
But now that a little time has passed, it seems that the folks over at Lionsgate and Sony Screen Gems might be taking a third trip to the Eastern European establishment that allows the rich of the world to torture innocent victims. Bloody Disgusting has received confirmation from their sources that the two companies are beginning to talk about a new sequel.
While it is probably too early to know if this will be a theatrical or direct-to-DVD project, one thing for sure is that Roth will not be involved.
