Director Eli Roth, whose Hemlock Grove was recently released as a Netflix original series, appeared on The Adam Carolla Show to discuss a variety of things. The topic of Kickstarter came up, and it sounds like this might be an avenue Roth could explore for getting films made in the future.
“This new Kickstarter thing is changing everything,” says Roth. “I’ve actually thought about funding movies this way, because you don’t have to pay back any investors, and then basically whatever the release plan is, like you own the movie one hundred percent, and you have nothing to lose. You don’t have to pay anybody back.”
Carolla also mentions that he’s shooting a Kickstarter video with Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston, so we’ll be on the lookout for that.
