The Inglourious Basterds actor, whose film is nominated for eight Oscars, has revealed details on a collaborative film with rapper RZA and admitted his one regret with 2007 horror movie Hostel 2.
Roth told Paste: "Currently, I’m producing this movie by RZA from Wu-Tang Clan that we wrote together called The Man With The Iron Fist. We’re looking to start shooting in August, and I’m writing a script - the next one for me to direct - called Endangered Species. It’s science fiction.
"Right now, it’s awards season. I’ve never experienced anything like this. With Inglourious Basterds, we won the Critics’ Choice awards, then there’s the BAFTAs, then there are the SAG Awards and Golden Globes. I’m having a great time. I don’t want to miss any of it. This is such a rare, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so I want to enjoy every minute."
He continued: "I learned that on Hostel. I went right into Hostel 2 a little too quickly. My only regret is that I really hadn’t stopped to take a moment and really enjoy the success of everything we accomplished with that film."
Roth added: "I think that’s why I got so burned out after Hostel 2 is that I didn’t have that break. I don’t want to look back a few years from now and say, 'Wow, this was an amazing, wonderful, special time in my life, and I wish I had taken the time to enjoy it'. So it’s a little distracting to block everything out to write, which is what I need to do. But I’m also having a great time."
The 2010 Academy Awards will be broadcast live on Sunday, March 7.
