Eli Roth was hailed by none other than genre demigod Quentin Tarantino as “the future of horror,” following his debut feature “Cabin Fever,” a grotesquely inventive chiller about a flesh-eating virus that has its way with a group of youngsters out camping in the woods. But since then, Roth hasn’t really lived up to the promise. He made two terrific “Hostel” movies (produced by Mr. Tarantino) but then drifted off the map, appearing as an actor in further QT adventures (“Death Proof,” “Inglourious Basterds”) and producing some forgettable schlock (“The Last Exorcism,” “Man with the Iron Fists”). With “Aftershock,” he makes a returning bid for the title of “the future of horror,” producing, co-writing and starring in a movie that uneasily mixes real-life tragedy with B-movie theatrics, using the 2010 Chilean earthquake as the backdrop for a movie that’s equal parts “Piranha 3D” and “The Impossible.” Like most testosterone-drenched horror movies of this ilk, the first 30 minutes or so is...
EXCLUSIVE: Franck Khalfoun will next direct I-Lived, his follow-up to the Elijah Wood-starring Maniac. Based on his own script, the movie centers on a young online app reviewer whose latest assignment mysteriously improves his life, but also starts to tear him apart. Ehud Bleiberg, Alix Taylor and Pavlina Hatoupis are producing along with the director. Tiffany Boyle and Nicholas Donnermeyer are executive producing. Bleiberg Entertainment’s Compound B division kicks off sales next week in Cannes and principal photography is set to start at the end of May.

His Maniac, a reboot of the cult 1980 serial killer movie, had an offical out of competition screening berth in Cannes last year. IFC Midnight acquired it for the U.S. Khalfoun’s other directing credits include P2 and Wrong Turn At Tahoe. He is represented by Sara Bottfeld and Jess Rosenthal of Industry Entertainment.

Everyone is focused on the upcoming birth of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby—and Khloe Kardashian swears she's perfectly okay with that.

Watch: Khloe Kardashian Takes a Few Jabs at Her Mom in a New Interview The 28-year-old reality star also reveals that when she and her husband Lamar Odom began trying for a baby of their own a couple years ago, she wasn't prepared to experience any troubles whatsoever. "I was 26 when that started, and I admit, I didn’t know a lot about my body," says Khloe. "It was hard for me to understand what was happening because my mom had six kids and Kourtney got pregnant quickly."

"People assume I’m desperate for a baby," she says. "And yes, I would love to have a baby. But I'm 28, and I've been married three and a half years. I love my life, but it doesn't feel incomplete right now." Watch: Kim Kardashian's Dress Drama at the Met Ball Khloe also talks candidly in the interview about why she hasn't been able to conceive—yet. "It's more about my hormones being off," she reveals. "I was taking hormone shots to stabilize them, and you have to take those shots consistently and they have to be done by a doctor—you can do them yourself, but I couldn't." "And then after your cycle, you have to go to the doctor for ultrasounds and more testing," she continues. "And if I'm in Miami and miss a treatment, I have to start all over again. It's a commitment and I don't mind doing it, but the timing was just off." Photos: Celeb Baby Bump Watch! As for becoming an aunt to Kim and Kanye's baby this summer, Khloe says, "People want to assume that I’m devastated. I couldn’t be happier. I actually got mad at Kourtney, because she was afraid to tell me at first. So I get why people think I’m hurt, because my own sister thought I would be." How would you feel if you were Khloe? Do you think she's telling the truth when she says she doesn't regret not getting pregnant?
