EXCLUSIVE: Eli Roth’s new horror thriller will open in Germany through Constantin, Russia and the Baltic States through West Company and Latin America through IDC.
Sales chief Alex Walton and his team have also licensed rights in Greece (Village Roadshow), Indonesia (PT Amero), Israel (United King), Singapore (Cathay) and South Africa (Nu Metro). Star TV took TV rights for southeast Asia.
Production on The Green Inferno is set to start in Peru and Chile in November. Roth will direct from a screenplay he co-wrote with Guillermo Amoedo and will produce alongside Worldview Entertainment’s Christopher Woodrow and Molly Conners as well as Sobras International producers Miguel Asensio Llamas and Nicolás Lopez. Plot details remain under wraps.
“Eli Roth has proven his worldwide appeal with his box office mega hit franchises Hostel and The Last Exorcism,” Walton said. “He has a huge fan base around the world and we are delighted that his new project has been met with the same degree of enthusiasm and positive response. We anticipate continuing the high level of interest from buyers here at Toronto.”
Exclusive Media has also licensed German rights on Ramin Bahrani’s festival entry At Any Price to Tele Munchen. The drama screens here tonight (9).
