The Green Inferno Sequel In The Works, “Darker And Scarier” Says Director Nicolas Lopez

The Green Inferno

Director, producer, writer, and actor Eli Roth never ceases to amaze me, and his upcoming cannibal horror film The Green Inferno is already getting positive reviews since its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on Saturday. You might want to read Bloody Disgusting‘s review to get a full spiel, which sounds like the film is “triumphant” according to them.

During a Q&A session for The Green Inferno after the screening at TIFF, Roth revealed that a sequel entitled Beyond The Green Inferno is already in the works. However, the sequel will be helmed by Aftershock director Nicolas Lopez, and Roth serving only as producer in partnership with Worldview Entertainment.

Lopez confirmed with THR that the sequel will be in the same vein as James Cameron’s Aliens, meaning bigger production and “darker and scarier.”

After writing and scouting all over Peru we realized that 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.

Production for Beyond The Green Inferno is expected to start soon, and we’ll keep you in the loop on Yell! Magazine.
