A group of college activist's trip to save an endangered tribe in the rain forest takes a horrific turn in the third trailer for director Eli Roth's new thriller The Green Inferno. After being pushed off its September 2014 release date indefinitely, it was announced earlier this month that the gory thriller will be released in theaters on September 25, 2015, with producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse Tilt company stepping in to distribute the film. The horror thriller marks Eli Roth's first directorial outing since Hostel: Part II back in 2007.
Directed and produced by Eli Roth, The Green Inferno follows a group of student activists who travel from New York City to the Amazon to save a tribe from extinction. In an unfortunate twist of fate, when the group arrives, they are taken hostage by the very cannibals they sought to protect. Director Eli Roth also has Knock, Knock starring Keanu Reeves hitting theaters later this year, although a specific release date hasn't been given yet.Read More
Just weeks after Warner Bros. resurrected the shark thriller adaptation Meg, which had been floundering in development for nearly two decades, Eli Roth has entered talks to direct. There is no word when production may begin yet, but it seems this adaptation of Steve Alten's 1997 novel may finally go before cameras in the near future. No cast members have been attached at this time, but that may change soon if Eli Roth's deal is finalized.
The story has been described as "Jurassic Park with a shark," centering on two men who join forces to try and stop a massive giant shark called the Carcharodon megalodon, which was thought to be extinct for over 2 million years, but was unearthed in the deepest part of the ocean known as the Mariana Trench. The shark is said to be one of the most devastating predators in history, spanning up to 60 feet long and weighing 20 tons. The original book, which was published in 1997, is set along the California coastline, but the adaptation will be set off the coast of China, a revision which helped secure Gravity Pictures as co-financiers.Read More
Back in August 2014, less than one month before The Green Inferno was set to hit theaters on September 5, 2014, the movie's release was delayed indefinitely. The movie was pulled due to the financial difficulties of the production company Worldview Entertainment, which had previously committed to providing publicity and advertising for the horror film. But, after Worldview CEO Christopher Woodrow abruptly left the company last summer, several of his "extravagant commitments" were frozen by new CEO Molly Conners.
The Green Inferno, Eli Roth's first directorial effort since 2007's Hostel: Part II, stars Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Aaron Burns, Daryl Sabara, Kirby Bliss Blanton and Magda Apanowicz. The story follows a group of college activists who travel to Peru to stage a protest and help save an endangered tribe, only to discover that these natives are actually cannibals. Eli Roth also has Knock, Knock starring Keanu Reeves hitting theaters later this year. The thriller is set for a June 26 release in the U.K., but no U.S. release date has been given.
