Lorenza Izzo is ready to heat up theaters…
Eli Roth’s long-awaited The Green Inferno, starring the Chilean actress, will finally be released on September 25 thanks to Blumhouse Productions label BH Tilt, Universal Pictures and High Top Releasing.
In The Green Inferno, a group of student activists travels to the Amazon to save the rain forest and soon discover that they are not alone, and that no good deed goes unpunished. The film was almost set to go domestically post-summer last year with trailers going viral online.
The Green Inferno will bow on approximately 1,000 screens. The film was originally set to bow on September 5 last year via Open Road Films. However, the pic was taken off the release schedule because financier Worldview Entertainment balked at ex-CEO Christopher Woodrow’s commitment to provide the P&A.
Roth’s first directorial effort in eight years is the first big screen opening of its kind for BH Tilt, which is dedicated to multi-platform releases.
“The Green Inferno is a wild, fun ride that took us deeper into the Amazon than anyone has ever taken a film crew,” said Roth in a statement. “BH Tilt is a forward thinking label that is helping to redefine how genre movies can be released. I want to express my deep gratitude to the fans for their incredible support of this movie and to everyone at Blumhouse and Universal for making sure fans can experience the film in theaters across the country.”
