He's still at it bless him. With the upcoming Grindhouse 25th Anniversay of his classic Cannibal Holocaust soon to hit the shelves (pre-order it from www.diabolikdvd.com), Ruggero Deodato has yet again been talking up the possibility of a sequel to his jungle-set cannibal flick.
First mentioned back in June (see our news here), Deodato has been at it again at the recent Festival of Fantastic Films in Manchester, where he announced he now has a title for the proposed sequel - Cannibal Metropolitana - and he hopes that the movie will be set in present-day Rome.
Deodato: ""It is a very strong story, and is completely different from the first movie. It is set in the city and it is about how different everything is now. Once, in Rome, it was only Roman people, but today it is also Chinese, Indian, Bangladeshi, Russian, South American - it is mixed, just like in London.
For Roman people, it is very strange, but this change is a good thing, I like it. You see, it is incredible to see one street that is all Chinese. It is just like Blade Runner now - if you remember, in that film there are [parts of the city] that are all Chinese shops.
So I wrote one story about this cultural change, and I hope that it is possible to shoot this movie. I call it Cannibal Metropolitana." - Thanks to Fangoria.com.
Deodato hasn't made a film since The Washing Machine in 1993
