Yesterday, a press release was issued from Exclusive Media and Worldview Entertainment announcing that they would be partnering with Eli Roth for his next directorial feature (the first in some time) titled THE GREEN INFERNO. As of now, not much is known about the project other than Roth co-wrote the script for the film with Guillermo Amoedo from an idea he had while traveling in Chile. I think we can speculate a bit on what the project is going to be about, however, given that Roth is a fan of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST and has something of a history with violent cinema. If you boils ‘n ghouls will remember, the film within a film in Holocaust was The Green Inferno as well. I suppose it’s always possible that this title may be intended to throw us off the scent of what he’s actually up to, but if it’s legit, it may be very safe to assume Roth’s next feature is going to be all about bloody cannibal mayhem. I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see.
