Eli Roth Threatens The Green Inferno
He's directing a new horror thriller

Eli Roth Threatens The Green Inferno

Hostel writer-director Eli Roth has spent the last few years producing, helping other filmmakers realise their visions and even cropping up as an actor in friends’ films – you know, killing Nazis, etc. But now he finally seems ready to get back into the director’s chair, announcing a deal with Worldview Entertainment at Cannes to make The Green Inferno.

Roth came up with the basic idea and turned that into a script with Guillermo Amoedo. But aside from the title, that’s about all we know of the film, since he’s keeping the rest locked away. We're reliably informed that it'll be at least 73% more terrifying than Disco Inferno. 

He’ll kick off shooting this autumn in Peru and Chile. Why there? He’s been spending time there, producing and starring in Nicolas Lopez’ Aftershock. "I've had an amazing few years producing, writing and acting, and am very excited to get back in the director's chair. I've been working on this idea for several years, and was inspired by filming in Chile and cannot wait to get back," Roth says in a statement picked up The Hollywood Reporter. "Worldview backs my vision and believe in me, and is giving me the support I need and the freedom to take risks and make something daring and terrifying."

At last he we will return to the director’s chair. At last he will have… Revenge. Wait, no, that’s someone else.
