Green Inferno on hold indefinitely


Sad news for those you like the boundary pushing of Eli Roth and the disturbing Cannibal Holocaust. His homage to that film, Green Inferno, has been put on hold indefinitely. It’s not because of any controversy, surprisingly. Instead some corporate disagreements are holding it back. 

The company that financed the film, Worldview Entertainment, is going through some upheaval since their CEO left. Evidently he agreed to pay a lot of the cost of distribution for the movie instead of Open Road and now Worldview is upset about that. Things need to be ironed out before the movie gets distributed at all. Could this be the death knoll for it? I’m guessing one way or another we’ll see it, but it may be straight to DVD. We definitely won’t be seeing it this September as originally planned.
