Open Road, who passed on releasing Oculs (review here>), is taking a bite out of Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno, says THR. The distributor, who also released the Roth-produced The Last Exorcism Part 2, nabbed U.S. rights to the gory cannibal movie, which is expected to get a wide release.
The film, produced and financed by Worldview Entertainment, is an homage to the notorious Italian cannibal movies of the late ’70s and early ’80s. It premiered worldwide on September 7 in the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto Film Festival.
“Set deep in the heart of the Amazon, The Green Inferno follows a group of student activists who travel to visit a dying tribe. When their plane crashes, they are taken hostage by the very natives they came to observe. Roth co-wrote the screenplay with Guillermo Amoedo.“
The title is being produced by Roth, Miguel Asensio, Nicolas Lopez, Christopher Woodrow, Molly Conners.
Roth and Worldview Entertainment are now planning a Green Inferno sequel, Beyond the Green Inferno, though Roth has decided not to direct. Instead, Nicolas Lopez (Aftershock) will tackle the follow-up.
