Ti West hints at next film. A sci-fi film 'The Side Effects'.

While in Austin to screen his current film The Innkeepers at SXSW Ti West spoke with The Playlist 

"It's called 'The Side Effects.' It's a science fiction movie about...it has to do with pharmaceutical testing in space and paranoia," West said. "It will be bigger budgeted, but in a 
way it would fill out a trilogy with 'House Of The Devil,' and 'The Inkeepers,' as far as dealing with isolation and paranoia, and that kind of psychological fear, but it's set in space."

According to West the idea for the film came out of a frustrating episode with an insurance company. It could also be a departure from the 80s aesthetic that we've come to know West for in House of the Devil and The Innkeepers.

It's a much more high-concept idea then my movies usually are," West said. "So I had a groovy high concept idea and then I went, 'Oh, and that fucking nightmare with the insurance company,' so it's kind of a mixture of those two things."

We'll keep our eyes and ears open for more as is happens.
