|Selena Gomez will atleast Cameo!!|
Details are starting to emerge about Aftershock, a thriller set in Chile during an earthquake. Deadline is reporting that as well as writing the script (alongside Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo) Eli Roth will play the lead role.
The plot revolves around inmates escaping from an insane asylum during the natural disaster, with Lopez inspired by his own experiences during the 2010 quake that devastated the country.
"I've been a huge fan of Nicolas Lopez since his remarkable debut Promedio Rojo and have watched him grow into one of the best young filmmakers out there," Roth said. "He has the incredible combination of commercial sensibility with an artistic eye, and what he has done here in Chile with their film industry is revolutionary.
"This collaboration marks the beginning of what we call Chilewood, making genre films for the global market using all the resources Chile has to offer. We are making a smart elevated disaster genre movie with superb production value, something really big. The film's going to be very scary, very intense, and very real."
Aftershock has been shooting on location in Chile for the last four weeks, with teen star Selena Gomez making a cameo which is already in the can.
