Following on from a very good response at the world premiere on Saturday night to his cannibal horror film “The Green Inferno,” filmmaker Eli Roth says he’s already at work on a sequel.
The first film follows a group of student activists who travel from New York City to the Amazon to save a dying tribe. They soon crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they protected.
Roth will not return to direct “Beyond The Green Inferno,” but will ‘present’ the film and produce. Instead, Nicolas Lopez will direct from a screenplay he co-wrote with Roth and Guillermo Amoedo.
Lopez says: “Our plan with Beyond The Green Inferno is to make a sequel in the tradition of Aliens, where the creative team went bigger, darker and scarier into the unknown.”
Lopez, Miguel Asensio Llamas, Christopher Woodrow and Molly Conners will produce. Filming will commence next spring in Chile and Peru.
