Eli Roth debut his new film ‘Knock Knock’ this weekend at Sundance and of course everyone was questioning him about his last project ‘The Green Inferno’ which has its release late last year yanked at the last minute leaving fans wondering just what the hell was going on. There has been no news since, until now.
While speaking with Indiewire about his Sundance screening of Knock Knock he also broke the following news:
“As of right now, all systems are go for the theatrical release. Here’s the thing: everyone is working to resolve it. Open Road has been amazing through this entire process. I really love them, they’ve been great. Even with whatever situation World View is going through, everyone is working together to find the best, cleanest, most positive resolution and get the film out in the widest release possible. I think realistically it would be in the August to September range. We wanted to have an announcement at Sundance. Trust me, I check in with the lawyers every day. Everyone is working to resolve it as soon as possible and we have hope to have an announcement within the next couple of weeks for the definite theatrical plan for the film. Everyone’s been so supportive. It’s almost been like “Save ‘The Green Inferno,'” in the same way that the students in the film want to save the Amazon.”
So, late summer or early fall. Sounds like a plan to me. Although it’s still not rock solid confirmation it at least sounds like all involved are trying to get this one out to the fans. Should have updates for you soon!
