Stage 6 Films is gearing up for an August shoot for Hostel: Part III. Stage 6 is the direct to dvd division of Sony Home Entertainment, is responsible for such home video releases as Zombie Strippers!, Starship Troopers 3: Marauder, Boogeyman 3, Vacancy 2: The First Cut, The Grudge 3, Messengers 2: The Scarecrow, The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day and 30 Days of Night: Dark Days. Scott Spiegel (From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money) will be directing from a screenplay by Michael Weiss (The Butterfly Effect 2). Bloody Disgusting is reporting that the sequel will take the horror franchise to Las Vegas, “where a bachelor party goes horribly wrong.” Sounds like a horrible idea (and this is coming from a guy who actually liked the second film in the series).
The following comes from an unconfirmed tipster on the IMDB forums:
It seems like it’s going to be Hostel (part I) in Vegas with lots of nudity and violence again. Our three friends are male again, but there are females too. The audition script pages don’t seem bad, so I’m hoping the film is at least a good ride.
Hostel/Hostel: Part II writer/director Eli Roth is not producing however. Roth let this be known on Twitter:
Rumor Control: not producing Hostel 3, but it’s in the VERY capable hands of director Scott Spiegel & producers Mike Fleiss & Chris Briggs. There was a huge demand to continue the series and they are the right team to do it. They’re very smart, creative, and really get it.
