Fangoria managed to speak with Cannibal Holocaust director Ruggero Deodato about his new project.

At our recent Weekend of Horrors convention in New Jersey, Italian director Ruggero Deodato took a few moments to give Fango a quick update on CANNIBALS (a.k.a. CANNIBAL METROPOLITAN), his upcoming follow-up to his notorious 1980 gorefest CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST. Scripted by Christine Conradt, with Imagination Worldwide backing it and veteran Canadian genremeister Pierre David on board as executive producer, the movie should be going before the cameras this fall. “I believe it will be in October, shooting in the Philippines and Ottawa in Canada,” Deodato tells Fango, adding that the film is not a direct sequel to HOLOCAUST: “It’s another story with new cannibals.”

This is good news as far as I’m concerned. While I don’t think Cannibal Holocaust needs a sequal, I see nothing wrong with Deodato making another cannibal flick. Therefore, “another story with new cannibals” sounds great. If you’ve mastered a certain genre, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t continue to make those certain kinds of movies.
