Hostel Director Goes PG-13

Eli Roth, who is known for his horror "Hostel" films, has announced that he is only weeks away from completing a script that can be enjoyed by the whole family. 

The film, Roth said, is inspired by "Transformers" and "Cloverfield" and that "This will be my first big-budget, PG-13, mass-destruction movie," he said backstage at the music industry's NME Awards in Los Angeles. "I went total chaos and pandemonium. I feel like I pushed the violence in R movies about as far as I can push it. I feel like I'm bled out. I wanna switch it up."

He wouldn't reveal any plotlines, but plans on making a big announcement about it next month.  "Everyone I know has been saying 'When are you gonna do a movie my kids can see?' And finally, I'm gonna make a movie that 13-year-old kids can see."

While Roth is planning on this PG-13 rated film, he says he will still include some gratuitous violence that will be included on the DVD in an unrated version.  This should definitely appease those who are his hardcore horror fans.
