Default The Green Inferno (Eli Roth)

Can't find a thread on this so thought I'd post the following.


Quote:
Synopsis: Student activists from New York City travel to the remote jungles of Peru in order to stage a protest but instead encounter a tribe of cannibals.

Quote:
Eli Roth will finally get behind the camera again to direct THE GREEN INFERNO, a tale of cannibals and their meals in the Peruvian jungle. During a recent chat with Movieline, Roth revealed a handful of small but interesting tidbits about the location where the flick will be shot.

THE GREEN INFERNO is evidently shooting somewhere along the Amazon River, a place, as Roth says, "so far up the Amazon, no one has ever shot there. The last person anywhere near there was Werner Herzog for Aguirre, the Wrath of God."

Roth and his small crew will be working in a small village populated by a people who have never even seen a film. To help familiarize them with the concept - since they'll be appearing as extras - Roth and his producers took a rather unusual approach. Read on for the amusing story:

"We said, ‘Can we shoot here?’ and talked to them, and our producers said ‘We have to explain to them what a movie is. They’ve never seen a television... So we brought a generator and set up a television. I thought they were going to show them E.T. or The Wizard of Oz, but they showed them Cannibal Holocaust to see how much they could handle."

That makes... sense, I suppose. Thankfully for the production team, the locals didn't take a cue from the movie and break out the bibs. "The villagers thought it was the funniest thing they’d ever seen," according to Roth.

In exchange for their cooperation, the crew is apparently donating a boat, medical supplies and other goods to the villagers, which seems like a fair trade. Hopefully they'll all get screen credit too, or at least a crack at the Craft service table.

THE GREEN INFERNO begins production in two weeks. It concerns 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.


Filming has been wrapped up since so I assume a late 2013 release? Thoughts?

I'm pretty excited about this one. Cannibal Holocaust is a favorite (this is supposed to be very inspired by), so looking forward to new jungle cannibal film heavy on gore but sans the real animal slaughter.

^^^ The part about Roth showing the local natives CH is freaking hilarious - I really hope they filmed their reaction and it's included in the disc, that'd be awesome.

Yeh that would be sweet . I hope they document production in the jungle, sounds really interesting.

I'm definitely looking forward to this, should have an awesome feel to it. Personally I love Cabin Fever and think the Hostel films are good for what they are so I trust he'll get this right. He also seems very passionate about this.

I'm sure their reaction to the turtle scene was worth the trip alone.

Read about this a month or two ago. Sounds like a blast.

This might be the 1st cannibal film actually worth watching. All of the others are crap and rely too much on the shock value of the animal cruelty.
