I liked Hostel and I see The CEll as a chance for him to really show he can do more then just torture porn as the mainstream press calls it. I just hope that the studios dont say "ohhh sorry we aintmaking enough off your name anymore... pull the plug"
I dont want to necessarily see them pull the plug, but if the project is gonna be on hold for a while and they really want to get it done, they may always look into a new director to fast track this project. Nothing against Roth totally, but I would love to see Cell done soon and dont think you need a horror guy like Roth in order for it to be successful.
When I said it will make or break his career, I mean it just as Meh said, to see if he is a one trick pony or if he can actually do something different and not always have to push the envelope for no reason.
And Goon, both may have made 3x it's budget, but look at it this way. Which film would studios rather have: One that made 3 times it's budet and profited $20 million and couldnt keep any legs, or one that made 3 times it's budget and profited close to $50 million and held it's own for a few weeks? I rest my case.
