Daryl Sabara (John Carter), Kirby Bliss Blanton (Project X) and Aftershock thesps Lorenza Izzo and Ariel Levy are in negotiations to star in Eli Roth‘s horror-thriller The Green Inferno along with Aaron Burns, Magda Apanowicz and singer-actress Sky Ferreria, reports Variety.
Worldview Entertainment (Devil’s Knot) is financing and producing the Peru-set pic, which Hostel helmer Roth is directing from a script he co-wrote with Guillermo Amoedo (Aftershock).
“The story follows a naive group of student activists from New York City who travel to the remote jungles of Peru, where they plan to stage a protest, but instead encounter a tribe of cannibals.” Pic will serve as an homage to one of Roth’s favorite horror films, Ruggero Deodato’s 1980 cult pic Cannibal Holocaust.
