A new trailer has dropped for Eli Roth‘s latest horror project, but this time he’s not the one behind the camera. Roth stars in Nicolás López‘s Aftershock as one of three friends (with Ariel Levy and Nicolás Martínez) who hit up a Chilean nightclub for a wild night out. Their evening takes a turn for the worse when a serious earthquake hits, and then gets downright deadly when the city begins to panic. Watch the video after the jump.

Eli Roth is making the earth move. The man behind the Hostel series, co-star of Inglourious Basterds and producer of The Last Exorcism has teamed up with successful Chilean filmmaker Nicolás López to make Aftershock, an English-language action-thriller inspired by the Chilean earthquake. It follows a group of six friends (including Roth, several international movie stars and a cameo by pop superstar Selena Gomez) struggling to survive after a massive earthquake hits their city and society crumbles around them. Most of the film will include realistic, practical effects.
Aftershock is still shooting in Chile but Lopez and Roth are ready to debut the first official images from the film exclusively here on /Film.

Briefly: Cinemax’s TV version of The Transporter took a big step this week when the two leads were cast. Chris Vance, perhaps best known in the states for roles on Prison Break, Dexter and Burn Notice, is the new ‘professional transporter’ Frank Martin, played in three big-screen outings by Jason Statham. And Andrea Osvart will play Carla, his handler, “an extremely crafty former CIA operative who organizes his missions, acts as his eyes and ears on the outside, and continually stokes the flames of their unrequited attraction.”
More interesting is that the same stunt team that did the Transporter films will be working on the series. So while the show might not have the budget of the films, it might at least be able to approximate the action. Luc Besson produces the series, which is set for 12 episodes at this point. It will shoot this summer and then hit Cinemax next year. [EW, Deadline]
