Back in August the devastating news hit that Eli Roth’s cannibal horror The Green Inferno (read our review; and our second review) was pulled from release. Since then, the horror community has been waiting on pins and needles for release news.
Out of the Sundance Film Festival, where Roth’s Knock Knock just premiered (read our review), the genre auteur revealed that it has all been sorted out, and will be coming to theaters soon.
“As of right now, all systems are go for the theatrical release,” Roth revealed to Indiewire. “Here’s the thing: everyone is working to resolve it. Open Road has been amazing through this entire process. I really love them, they’ve been great. Even with whatever situation World View is going through, everyone is working together to find the best, cleanest, most positive resolution and get the film out in the widest release possible.”
And when might it get released? Roth exclaims, “I think realistically it would be in the August to September range.”
Heading deep into the Amazon are Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Daryl Sabara and Kirby Bliss Blanton, who star in the pic that “follows a group of student activists who from New York City travel to the Amazon to protect a dying tribe, but crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they saved.“
