Back in August we were hit with the word that Eli Roth's cannibal-themed horror tale THE GREEN INFERNO had been taken off the menu from its originally planned release date, and at the time there was no indication of how long the release would be delayed. But there is finally some light at the end of the dark tunnel for THE GREEN INFERNO as Roth recently shared some updates on the flick in an interview with Indiewire where he revealed...

As of right now, all systems are go for the theatrical release. 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. I think realistically it would be in the August to September range. We wanted to have an announcement at Sundance. Trust me, I check in with the lawyers every day. Everyone is working to resolve it as soon as possible and we have hope to have an announcement within the next couple of weeks for the definite theatrical plan for the film. Everyone's been so supportive. It's almost been like "Save ‘The Green Inferno,'" in the same way that the students in the film want to save the Amazon.

This is great news for fans of Roth and his demented and twisted films. I've been excited to peep this one for a while so I'm stoked a release date is nearing.

Directed by Roth from a screenplay by Roth and Guillermo Amoedo, THE GREEN INFERNO follows...

...a group of student activists who travel from New York City to the Amazon to save the rainforest. However, once they arrive in this vast green landscape, they soon discover that they are not alone… and that no good deed goes unpunished.

We'll keep you posted on news regarding THE GREEN INFERNO and hit you with the release date as soon as we hear it.
