Toronto: Eli Roth, Worldview Re-Team for ‘Green Inferno’ Sequel

Pic will be directed by 'Aftershock' helmer Nicolas Lopez

“Toronto”  Following the midnight world premiere of cannibal caper-shocker “The Green Inferno” in Toronto on Saturday, Worldview Entertainment and director-producer Eli Roth have announced they will continue their partnership for the sequel, “Beyond the Green Inferno.”

Pic will be directed by Nicolas Lopez, whose “Aftershock” (produced by Roth) bowed at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Roth will present and produce the sequel, and co-script with Guillermo Amoedo and Lopez.

Worldview CEO Christopher Woodrow, COO Molly Conners will also produce alongside Lopez and Miguel Asensio Llamas of Sobras International Pictures. Maria Cestone and Sarah E. Johnson will executive produce for Worldview.

CAA, which is repping “Inferno” in Toronto, arranged financing and will rep domestic rights for the sequel.

Although plot details are staying in the pot for now, principal lensing will start in spring 2014 in Chile and Peru, where the original was also shot.

Buyer interest in “Inferno” fired up Sunday, with a U.S. sale of the pic (which closed deals for numerous territories pre-fest) expected before the end of the festival.

Roth is also in Toronto as producer of Ti West’s “The Sacrament”—which Roth described to Variety as “very smart, dark, straight-up go-for-the-throat horror.” The pic world preems Sunday night in the Vanguard program.
