In addition to Metallica, the festival – which plans to return in 2021 with an expanded four-nights – the other headlining set will come from My Chemical Romance at Discovery Park in Sacramento from October 7-10.

The new Thursday night concert on October 7 will be a celebratory evening to kick off the anticipated return of the festival that has sold out for the last five years, but was canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Aftershock 2021 will be headlined by Metallica (performing two different sets, one on Friday and one on Sunday) and My Chemical Romance (Saturday), who were both confirmed for the sold-out 2020 event.

The 2021 lineup will also include Limp BizkitRancidThe OffspringSocial DistortionRise AgainstVolbeatMachine Gun KellyMastodon, GojiraSEETHER, Parkway Drive and many more.

“We can’t wait to play at Aftershock 2021 with our Bay Area brothers Metallica,” Rancid said in a statement. “We first played with them on the Lollapalooza tour in 1996 along with the Ramones and later down the road we toured across South America together. It’s gonna be wild, see ya in the pit!”

In 2019, Aftershock celebrated its biggest-ever year with 97,500 in attendance during the sold-out three-day event. As Aftershock 2021 draws near, producer Danny Wimmer Presents will be working with local officials to make sure the festival conforms to the then-current social distancing protocols.

Passes are on sale now and can be purchased for only $20 down. Payments will then be spread out over the next nine months, beginning in December. Single day admission starts at $119.50 + fees, while four day passes start at $379.50 + fees.

Izzo to Star Opposite Keanu Reeves in Eli Roth’s “Knock, Knock”

Knock, knock! Who’s there? It’s Lorenza Izzo

The 22-year-old Chilean actress, who starred opposite Selena Gomez in Eli Roth’s Aftershock, has signed on to star opposite Keanu Reeves in Knock, Knock.

The psychological thriller, written and directed by Roth, centers on a happily married family man (Reeves) who’s left alone for the weekend, when two beautiful girls show up at his house and turn his life upside down.

Izzo, who just starred Roth’s The Green Inferno, will portray one of those girls.

The other will be portrayed by Cuban actress Ana de Armas, who just played Robert Duran’s wife in Hands Of Stone opposite Edgar Ramirez and Robert De Niro.

Meanwhile, Chilean actress Ignacia Allamand will portray Reeves’ wife in the film.

Roth wrote the script with his Green Inferno collaborators Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo.

Production on Knock, Knock is set to start on April 14 in Santiago, Chile.

Lopez to Direct “Beyond the Green Inferno”

Nicolás López is preparing to go beyond The Green Inferno

The 30-year-old Chilean filmmaker has been tapped by Eli Roth and Worldview Entertainment to direct the sequel to the cannibal horror-thriller The Green Inferno.

News of the follow-up came as Roth’s The Green Inferno made its worldwide premiere September 7 in the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto Film Festival.

The high-profile film, set deep in the heart of the Amazon, follows a group of student activists who travel to visit a dying tribe. When their plane crashes, they are taken hostage by the very natives they came to observe.

Worldview Entertainment teamed with Roth to finance and produce The Green Inferno and will also produce and finance Beyond the Green Inferno.

Beyond the Green Inferno’s plot is being kept under wraps. Roth will present and produce the sequel, which is based on a script he wrote with Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo.

Lopez — who worked on the script for Green Inferno — and Miguel Asensio Llamas of Sobras International Pictures are also producing.

“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,” said Lopez.

Lopez and Roth also collaborated on the film Aftershock, with Lopez directing from a script he co-wrote with Roth.

Roth agreed with Lopez that  filming Green Inferno was a life-changing experience.

“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 first hand 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.

“We don’t want to give away any plot secrets, only that we want to take the story to an even darker and scarier place on all levels. Shooting begins when the rainy season ends and it’s safe enough for us to return with another ‘adventurous’ filmmaking team. We’re thrilled to produce the film with Worldview Entertainment, who has been an incredible, supportive partner right from the start,” the filmmaker continued.

Set in South America, the terrorific film follows the events that unfold after an earthquake, with an ominous tagline,
“The only thing more terrifying than Mother Nature is human nature.”

The plot synopsis that reads, “In Chile, a group of travelers who are in an underground nightclub when a massive earthquake hits quickly learn that reaching the surface is just the beginning of their nightmare.”

Gomez’s role in the slasher film is being kept strictly under wraps, but she did give MTV a slight hint earlier this year: “It’s actually a very funny scene with him… And it’s cute. Well, I mean, the movie’s not cute. It’s actually scary, but the scene was cute.”
