Following the announcement that horror director Eli Roth (Hostel) would be taking on The Green Inferno as his next project, details regarding the plot have begun to emerge. The film will apparently be a type of homage to classic cannibal films such as the infamous Cannibal Holocaust. The screenplay was co-written by Roth and Guillermo Amoedo and is based on original story conceived by Roth. The Green Inferno will follow the story of a student and a group of humanitarians whose illusory ideals ultimately lead their capture by a troop of cannibals after their plane crash-lands in the Peruvian jungle. Production on the film is slated to begin this fall.
