Earlier this month, Eli Roth announced that he would be returning as feature film director with The Green Inferno. Details were vague, but some speculated that his Inferno would somehow be connected to Ruggero Deodato‘s notorious 1980 Cannibal Holocaust. Those who called it, pat yourselves on the back. The plot details have finally been revealed and it looks like we’re in for some jungle cannibal chaos.
According to Variety, Roth’s Inferno will be about “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.”
Though it’s not official, it seems like The Green Inferno is connected to Cannibal Holocaust, as the former will also be, well, a cannibal story.
It’ll be interesting to see what Roth does with a cannibalistic movie. It’s been a while since Roth was behind-the-camera of a feature film movie. Let’s hope he’s still able to give something jaw dropping. There definitely needs to be a lot of blood, guts and gross-out visuals.
Production is set to start this fall in Peru and Chile. There’s no official release date for The Green Inferno yet, but from the look of things, it’ll probably be sometime in 2013. Roth co-wrote the script with Aftershock co-writer Guillermo Amoedo.
And for those of you that can’t wait that long for an Eli Roth pic, you can check out his Netflix series Hemlock Grove in early 2013.
