Eli Roth Cheated Death on "Inglourious Basterds" Set

Posted: May 25th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Eli Roth Cheated Death on "Inglourious Basterds" SetSubmit Comment
Speaking from the Cannes Film Festival, Eli Roth revealed that he was very close to being burned alive while filming Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Bastards."

He said that he and Omar Doom were supposed to do a stunt in which they would be engulfed in flames as Tarantino would hover high above them behind the camera in a flame-retardant suit.

The actors were told that nothing would go wrong since the stunt was tried successfully twice before. So they were slathered with protective gel and crew members were ready to put out the flame in case it started spreading onto their bodies.

When the cameras began rolling, the fire quickly went out of control with the temperature reaching 1,000 degrees Celsius causing the actors' faces and hands to burn. But since there could only be one take of the scene, nobody stopped the blaze until Tarantino got his shot.

"If we'd been there another 10 seconds, they said the ceiling would have collapsed on us," Roth told MTV News.

Damn. We almost got rid of Roth forever. If only Quentin took that extra 10 seconds to get his shot.

Yeah this is quite a retarded statement seeing how its a spoiler and totally sets him up from an easy joke that 90 percent of us want to say....and brundlefly has said it all.

Damn it! That close to "Cell" moving to a director who actually wants to make the f*cking movie!

1000 degrees C is 1/3 to 1/4 the heat spacecraft experience on re-entry. This guy is full of it.

He's a Jewish, Indiana Jones wannabe that carries a bat (I'd prefer the whip... chicks digs whips).

If the film's a hit- there should be a lawsuit.
