Eli Roth

Kevin Smith is already on board for Heroes but now so is Eli Roth…

The director of horror film Hostel, Eli Roth, is set to write an episode of Heroes spin-off series Origins, according to an industry report.

Michael Dougherty, who co-wrote the screenplay of Superman Returns, will also pen an episode of the show, says the Hollywood Reporter.

The series, due to start in the US next Spring, will introduce new characters so far unseen in the original drama.

US viewers will vote for one of the new superheroes to join the main programme.

Big fans

BBC Two has struck a deal with NBC to screen future series of the science-fiction drama, including series two.

The station’s terrestrial premiere of the programme attracted an audience of 4.3 million viewers earlier this year.

Roth is also expected to direct his episode of the spin-off show, which will show each character as they discover their extraordinary powers.

Both Roth and Dougherty, who recently made his directorial debut on the horror film Trick ‘r Treat, are said to be big fans of Heroes.

Roth has acting, producing, directing and writing credits on Grindhouse, the latest movie from Quentin Tarantino.

The second season of Heroes is making its debut in the US on Monday night.
