The writer and director, who made his directorial debut with the unfortunate Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever, has made quite the impression with his past two features, The House of the Devil and The Innkeepers, both of which were critical successes.
Details on The Sacrament are scarce, but it’s more than likely the film will follow similar themes and subjects seen in his previous work, including the segments he contributed to V/H/S (read our review here) and The ABCs of Death, due to premiere at the 37th annual Toronto International Film Festival.
The Sacrament will be financed by Worldview Entertainment and produced by fellow writer and director Eli Roth (Hostel), who recently made his love of West’s work clear:
“I’ve been a Ti West fan since his first film and have watched him continue to grow into one of the smartest and most exciting filmmakers working today. We want to make this Ti’s first mainstream movie, without sacrificing the quality and unflinching horror of the subject matter. And I’m thrilled to once again partner with Worldview Entertainment, as they fully appreciate what we bring to the project and are letting us run wild with it.”
Filming is due to kick off in Georgia later this month, so a Sundance/SXSW premiere early next year isn’t out of the question.
