Is Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving Panel Cancellation at NYCC confirmed?

The panel for the highly-anticipated horror movie, Thanksgiving, directed by Eli Roth and produced by TriStar and Spyglass, has been unexpectedly canceled at the New York Comic-Con (NYCC). The panel, which was scheduled to take place on October 13th at the Empire Stage in the Javits Center, was set to feature a sit-down chat with Eli Roth and the screening of a featurette. The studio did not provide any reason for the cancellation at this time.

According to a source, the last-minute pull-out is attributed to a “scheduling issue”. However, it has been confirmed that no other panels at NYCC are expected to cancel tomorrow.

Roth’s Thanksgiving is scheduled to be released in theaters on November 17th. The movie is based on a faux trailer that Roth created for Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s 2007 film, Grindhouse.

Directed and co-written by Eli Roth and Jeff Rendell, Thanksgiving follows the story of a Turkey Day inspired killer who terrorizes Plymouth, Massachusetts after a Black Friday riot ends in tragedy. The movie is produced by Roger Birnbaum, Eli Roth, and Jeff Rendell, with Gary Barber, Peter Oillataguerre, Kate Harrison, and Greg Denny serving as executive producers.

The cast of Thanksgiving includes Patrick Dempsey, Nell Verlaque, Addison Rae, Jalen Thomas Brooks, Milo Manheim, Gina Gershon, Tim Dillon, and Rick Hoffman.

No comments have been provided by representatives from New York Comic-Con or Sony regarding the cancellation of the panel. We will update you if any statement is issued.
