It was announced a few weeks back that Worldview Entertainment would be teaming with Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel, Hostel: Part II) to produce and finance the filmmaker’s top secret The Green Inferno.

Roth wrote the script with Guillermo Amoedo based on Roth’s original story, but the logline is being kept under tight wraps. Many speculated it would be a sequel to Ruggero Deodato shocking 1980 classic Cannibal Holocaust.

A Variety report officially confirms The Green Inferno will be a cannibal flick, and breaks the first story details: Apparently inspired by Italo mondo films like Ruggero Deodato’s notorious 1980 Cannibal Holocaust and Antonio Climati’s 1988 Natura contro (also known as The Green Inferno and Cannibal Holocaust II), The Green Inferno follows an idealistic student and a group of naive do-gooders who are captured by cannibalistic Indios after their plane crash lands in the Peruvian jungle.

Roth is set to begin shooting in the fall in Peru and Chili, where he recently starred in and produced the earthquake thriller Aftershock, which is currently in post production. He and Amoedo also wrote the script for that film.

    I hope this isn’t filmed like found footage and is more just a straight horror flick. Has potential to be really good.

    Viva La Grindhouse!!! I just read that Quentin Tarantino is making a Spagetti Western and now this…a Cannibal flick from Eli Roth? All we need now is a grimey theatre with sticky floors. Can’t wait to see these….42nd Forever!

    What’d I tell ya, what’d I tell ya.. great news though for sure, it’s about time someone did a cannibal flick throwback. Now the issue is it has to be completely violent and nasty and the cannibals actually must be frightening and have some amazingly brutal attributes or whatever to shock the new age of filmgoers. Some Riz Ortolani would be great on the musical side, too!

    This is no doubt the best news I’ve heard in a while. A throwback to the old cannibal movies? I will definitely be keeping up with this one, and I can’t wait to see it.

    thanks DJblack! You’re one of my favorite posters on BD so thanks again, and the old school cannibal movies arent for everyone (surely not those who cant stand the whole animal business) but I’ve always thought they were great fun no matter how stupid. I also love Roth’s movies and style, so I’m sure that combining the two will be immensely enjoyable.
