Eli Roth will begin production on Hostel 2 in September in Prague, Cesky Krumlov, Karlovy Vary and other locations around the Czech Republic says Production Weekly. Some scenes will be shot at Barrandov Studios, Rome and possibly Slovakia. The first film was shot in the Czech Republic and neighboring Slovakia.
Roth said that Hostel 2, which focus on three female characters, will be darker than the original. "The first Hostel is a journey into hell that starts off fun," he said. "Part 2 is going to start off scary and stay creepy all the way through." "I want it to feel like the movie is going to pick up on the next cut, as if you could watch the two movies back-to-back and it would be a three-hour movie," he said. "There will be some new things thrown in there but it has to look and feel like that movie."
Roth also confirmed plans to direct Cell, an adaptation of the Stephen King best-seller, for the Weinstein Company, with production beginning in spring 2007.
