Titled “Beyond The Green Inferno”, Eli Roth has already plotted a sequel to cannibal horror film “The Green Inferno” with Nicolas Lopez set to direct. Nicolas Lopez and Eli Roth had previously collaborated on the film “Aftershock”, which was co-written and produced by Roth while Lopez co-wrote and directed it. This is what they both had to say about the decision to green-light a sequel so fast.
“After writing and scouting all over Peru, we realized that The Green Inferno had an expansive universe and that we would love to visit it again and go deeper into the jungle. Our plan with Beyond the Green Inferno is to make a sequel in the tradition of Aliens, where the creative team went bigger, darker and scarier into the unknown. Eli has been an amazing creative collaborator and has set the groundwork for an entire universe of stories we’re both incredibly excited to tell,” said Lopez.
“We quickly learned there’s an entire world of stories, legends, myths and monsters in that jungle. It’s endless. Living in isolation, we saw firsthand just how far and deep we could take the world of The Green Inferno. I’m thrilled to hand the directing reins to Nicolas Lopez, who has been a key part of my creative team from the beginning of this project and I know will make an incredible film,” Roth said.
