Troubled Amazonian horror film finally set to hit cinemas next month
Sky Ferreira looks likely to finally see the light of day in ‘The Green Inferno’, almost a year after Eli Roth’s horror was first scheduled to appear in cinemas.
Clips have emerged showing Ferreira in a street scene in the film, in which she plays a character called Kaycee. The plot is based around a tribe of cannibals and a disastrous activist group’s trip into the Peruvian jungle:
Ferreira is better known for her musical career, but does have a history with film, also appearing in half a dozen other movies dating back to 2008. While she played herself in early appearances, Ferreira is currently working on ‘Elvis & Nixon’, a comedy drama due to be released next year, and crime film ‘The Trust’, for which release information is yet to be confirmed.
‘The Green Inferno’ has had a torrid start to life, having appeared at the Toronto International Film Festival and gone through other private screenings before being scheduled for release in September 2014. It was pulled from cinematic distribution less than a month before that date after the production company involved suffered from financial difficulties, but is now set to launch in American cinemas on September 25.
The film has already been approved by the British Board of Film Classification following its earlier near miss, but no official UK release date has yet been confirmed.
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles native is playing a couple of hometown shows over the coming weekend, despite having recently reported ‘health issues‘ as a factor in the delay to a recent video shoot.
