(Relaxnews) – The director of “Cabin Fever” and “Hostel” is back with “Knock Knock,” in which a married man becomes the plaything of two evil youths.

Written with Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo, who worked with Roth on the script for 2012′s “Aftershock,” the movie is expected to begin shooting in April.

With a relatively modest budget weighing in at under $10 million, “Knock Knock” sees two young girls destroy the supposedly perfect life of a married man, according to TheWrap.

Though actors are yet to be announced, Roth is joined by Colleen Camp (“American Hustle,” “Die Hard with a Vengeance”) in producing the movie.

Camp is also producing on “The Truth about Lies,” starring Odette Annable of “Rush” and “House M.D.,” and Peter Bogdanovich’s “Squirrels to the Nuts,” both due 2015.

On Roth’s slate is vampire film “Harker,” in which he is expected to direct Russell Crowe as fanged monstrosity Dracula.
