Some new details have surfaced for Eli Roth’s directorial follow-up to the Hostel franchise, The Green Inferno, and it sounds like we’re in for a tale featuring some good old fashioned jungle cannibal induced mayhem!
According to Variety, the flick is inspired by Italian 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. Exclusive Media is handling international sales.
Production is set to begin in autumn in Peru and Chile. Roth co-wrote the screenplay with Aftershock co-writer Guillermo Amoedo from an original story by Roth. Roth recently directed the pilot episode of Netflix’s “Hemlock Grove.”
