Eli Roth's The Green Inferno pulled from September release date

Aug. 8, 2014by: Kevin Woods

Eli Roth's cannibal-themed horror tale THE GREEN INFERNO has been taken off the menu for September, having its release plans disrupted over what appears to be some bureaucratic bulls**t with one of the film's financiers.

Deadline is reporting that the Roth-directed film, about student activists who travel from Gotham to save the Amazon rainforest only to be pursued by a cannibal tribe, has been taken off Open Road’s release calendar. The film was scheduled for wide release on September 5. They share that the film was pulled due to "financier Worldview Entertainmen balking at ex-CEO Christopher Woodrow’s commitment to provide the P&A".

Open Road hasn't given any word as to whether there will be a later release date or if the film goes straight to video.

This is a real bummer as THE GREEN INFERNO was my most anticipated film of the summer in our Summer In Horror 2014 Podcast. I know many of you were looking forward to Roth's return to directing, but it seems we'll have to wait a while longer. We'll keep you up to date on any news regarding when we may finally see THE GREEN INFERNO get a release.

Extra Tidbit: Are you as disappointed by this news as I am?
