Variety is reporting that the film is inspired by Italo mondo films like Ruggero Deodato's notorious 1980 "Cannibal Holocaust" and Antonio Climati's 1988 "Natura contro" (also known as "The Green Inferno" and "Cannibal Holocaust II").
"The Green Inferno" will follow an idealistic student and a group of naive do-gooders who are captured by cannibalistic Indios after their plane crash lands in the Peruvian jungle.
Exclusive Media is handling international sales for the pic, which sounds like it may be a real winner if your into blood, guts and of course cannibals.
Production is set to begin in autumn in Peru and Chile. Roth co-wrote the screenplay with Aftershock co-writer Guillermo Amoedo from an original story by Roth.
