Eli Rothis one of those guys who seemingly never stops working. Whether serving as director, producer, actor, or some combination thereof, he’s always got a bounty of projects on the table. This year is no different and first up is The Last Exorcism 2, opening March 1st, for which Roth returns as producer. Part 2 continues where the first film left off, Louisiana farm girl Nell (Ashley Bell) is found alone in the woods with her family dead and no memory of what happened. As she tries to build a new life for herself in New Orleans pieces of her past begin to resurface and she discovers that the demon inside her is in no hurry to let her go.
I recently landed an exclusive phone interview with Roth. He talked about coming up with a new approach for the sequel, the difficulty of titling the sequel, and whether fans can expect to have their questions answered. He also talked about getting back in the director’s chair with The Green Inferno, shooting in the Amazon, the status on Thanksgiving, stepping into television format with Hemlock Grove, and working with Ti West on The Sacrament.
