Two weeks ago, when we first brought you the news of Eli Roth's next directing gig THE GREEN INFERNO, some of our readers expressed hope for it to be a cannibal flick in the vein of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST. Well, guess what - it looks like that's exactly what we're gonna get! While reporting of Constantin Film acquiring German rights to the film, Variety dropped some deets on the movie's plot.
Here's the relevant excerpt:
Apparently inspired by Italo 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.
Sounds familiar, right? I have to say, considering Mr. Roth's track record and the potential for carnage held by this premise, this looks to be one hell of a bloodbath.
Filming on THE GREEN INFERNO is set to begin this Fall.
