Hey, fans of “Hostel” and Eli Roth, the writer/director’s latest, the cannibals-r-us film “The Green Inferno” has released six new images. It also apparently did pretty well during its recent showing at the Toronto International Film Festival, and has since been picked up by Open Road for distribution. Roth himself also announced a sequel while at the fest, to be called “Beyond The Green Inferno”. I guess he’s got himself a new “Hostel”.
And for those still waiting for a trailer, well, you and me both, buddy. We will, of course, post it when it finally lands online. After all, who doesn’t like a good ol fashion cannibal movie? It’s been a while since we’ve chowed down on one, am I right?
A group of student activists travel from New York City to the Amazon to save a dying tribe but crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they protected.
The film counts Kirby Bliss Blanton, Daryl Sabara, Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Aaron Burns, Magda Apanowicz, and Sky Ferreria among its victims. Since a sequel is also on the way, I’m guessing some of them survives dinner time.
No word on a release date yet, but later this year, or possibly early 2014 is likely.
