While Eli Roth’s cannibal horror film The Green Inferno just debuted over the weekend at the Toronto Film Festival news has already been released that the movie will be getting a sequel called Beyond the Green Inferno. Supposedly there will be more cannibals there, but it could also be a land of rainbows and ponies.
Word around the interwebs for those that saw the midnight premier say that Roth has made a glorious return to the directors chair if you’re into the kind of disturbing cannibal movies that cause controversy. I’m still a bit on the fence as Roth’s Hostel Part II was simply a bunch of torture porn without any scares so he’s lost a lot of faith from me. Of course while he directed this first one he won’t be doing the second with Nicolas Lopez (Aftershock) jumping on to direct and Roth producing.
Sounds like another franchise moving quickly to the straight to video bin before it has even started.[via Collider]
