And now he is going to shoot “The Green Inferno” in the Amazon River. The plot revolves around a group of survivors from a plane crash who has to survive in the amazons and comes across a tribe of cannibals. Roth has said in the past that Cannibal Holocaust is one of his favorite movies and the title “Green Inferno” is an obvious reference to that film, since that is also the title of the film-within-the-film in Holocaust.
Since directing the sequel to Hostel, Roth has kept himself busy by producing The Last Exorcism and popping up in cameo’s in other films. I haven’t been impressed with his films so far, but I am always up for a new cannibal movie so hopefully he is able to deliver something interesting with this one. My biggest concern is that it can quickly become a rehash of the older ones and simply another homage instead of bringing something new to the table.
The cast he will be working with consist of Daryl Sabara (Spy Kids, Machete), Kirby Bliss Blanton (Hannah Montana, Scar), Lorenza Izzo (Fuck My Wedding, Aftershock) and Ariel Levy (Fuck My Wedding, Aftershock), Sky Ferreira (Putty Hill) and Magda Apanowicz (Snowmageddon, Dead Souls).
Filming is set to start in November.
