Principal photography is now set to begin November 5 in Peru on Eli Roth's (Hostel, Cabin Fever) The Green Inferno. The horror thriller's full cast has, today, been announced to include Lorenza Izzo (Aftershock), Ariel Levy (Aftershock), Aaron Burns, Daryl Sabara (John Carter, Machete), Kirby Bliss Blanton (Project X), Magda Apanowicz and actress/singer Sky Ferreria.
Worldview Entertainment, a leading independent motion picture production and investment company, is financing and producing the horror thriller, which is directed by Roth and based on a screenplay he co-wrote with Aftershock co-writer Guillermo Amoedo. Exclusive Media is handling the international sales to the film that will be presented to buyers at the upcoming American Film Market by Alex Walton, Exclusive Media's President of International Sales and Distribution. CAA, which arranged financing for the film, is handling domestic rights.
Roth is producing The Green Inferno alongside Worldview CEO, Christopher Woodrow, Worldview COO, Molly Conners, and Sobras International producers Miguel Asensio and Nicolás López. Worldview's Maria Cestone, Sarah Johnson Redlich and Hoyt David Morgan will executive produce. Filming will take place over the next few weeks in Peru before moving to Santiago, Chile.
This will be Roth's much anticipated directorial follow up to the enormously successful Hostel franchise, which collectively grossed over $300 million worldwide. Most recently Roth co-wrote, produced and starred in Aftershock; produced and co-wrote The Man with the Iron Fists for Universal Studios, starring Russell Crowe, RZA and Lucy Liu with Quentin Tarantino presenting; produced Beginning of The End - The Last Exorcism II with Strike Entertainment for StudioCanal; and is currently filming his new series Hemlock Grove for Netflix.
The Green Inferno is Worldview's second collaboration with Roth after teaming up to finance and produce Ti West's (The Innkeepers, The House of the Devil) horror thriller, The Sacrament, currently in pre-production in Savannah, Georgia.
