Consider this a rumor until it can be confirmed. But last week, the news got out that Lionsgate had begun early discussions for a HOSTEL: PART 3 and that series creator Eli Roth would not be involved. Now, Bloody-Disgusting got a tip from a reliable source that the studio is talking with series producer Scott Spiegel to write and direct HOSTEL: PART 3.
Now, for those of you who don’t know, Spiegel co-wrote my all time favorite horror movie… EVIL DEAD 2: DEAD BY DAWN. He was one of the producers on 2001 MANIACS, as well as the first 2 HOSTEL films, and even had a cameo in buddy Sam Raimi’s SPIDER-MAN 2. (He’s the guy on the balcony that tries to eat one of Spidey’s slices.) The guy’s got a long history with the genre, so even though I’m personally not interested in yet another HOSTEL sequel, I’d be curious as to his take on the material.
Another interesting tid-bit from B-D’s post, they mention that HOSTEL: PART 3 will in fact be a direct-to-DVD/Blu-Ray release. More when we hear it!
