Marina Antunes [Celluloid 09.10.13] horror

Go figure. Just days after Eli Roth premiered his latest at TIFF, he's also announced a sequel which he says will be made "in the tradition of Aliens, where the creative team went bigger, darker and scarier into the unknown."

The Green Inferno premiered last week at TIFF to quite a bit of notoriety, being called everything from "sick" to "triumphant." It seems clear: Roth's version of the jungle cannibal horror subgenre is violent, bloody and one of Roth's best and the producers seem to be convinced that they have a winner on their hands because they've agreed to finance a second movie titled Beyond the Green Inferno.

Details are scarce but it's safe to assume that the story will unfold sometime after the events of Roth's movie which follows a group of student activists who head to the Amazon to help a dying tribe and instead find themselves held hostage by the very natives they set off to rescue.

Roth will not be returning to direct the sequel, passing those duties onto Aftershock director Nicolas Lopez.

Finger's crossed that The Green Inferno is as good as everyone's saying it is. Hopefully we'll soon have some news on the movie's release in the coming weeks.
