Updated with a hi-res version! Inside, you'll find the first official still from Eli Roth's next feature directorial effort, The Green Inferno.
Shooting began in Peru last November with stars Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Aaron Burns, Daryl Sabara, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Magda Apanowicz and actress/singer Sky Ferreria.
The Green Inferno is cannibal flick directed by Eli Roth and based on a screenplay he co-wrote with Aftershock co-writer Guillermo Amoedo. The film follows a group of student activists who from New York City travel to the Amazon to protect a dying tribe, but crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they saved.
This week, Eli Roth has called it a wrap on The Green Inferno, his cannibal movie open, as he now slides into production. Shooting began in Peru last month with stars Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Aaron Burns, Daryl Sabara, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Magda Apanowicz and actress/singer Sky Ferreria.
To commemorate the shooting wrap, Roth had a snapshot taken with his cast of "cannibals" which he shared with his Instagram and Twitter followers. Check out the full pic inside...

Roth is producing The Green Inferno alongside Worldview CEO, Christopher Woodrow, Worldview COO, Molly Conners, and Sobras International producers Miguel Asensio Llamas and Nicolás Lopez.
Eli Roth is preparing to shoot his next feature film, The Green Inferno, in two weeks, reports Movieline. It's his first feature film since helming Hostel: Part II in 2007 (since then he also directed the upcoming Netflix series Hemlock Grove).
According to the site, Roth will be heading to the Amazon and using up to 200 native villagers to play extras in his cannibal tale and he recruited them by holding a "screening" Ruggero Deodato's Cannibal Holocaust.
"We said, ‘Can we shoot here?’ and talked to them, and our producers said ‘We have to explain to them what a movie is. They’ve never seen a television,'" Roth told Movieline. "So we brought a generator and set up a television. I thought they were going to show them E.T. or The Wizard of Oz, but they showed them Cannibal Holocaust to see how much they could handle."
Earlier this month, Eli Roth announced his intentions to get back behind the camera for a film entitled The Green Inferno. The project would mark his return to feature film territory - currently, he's shooting Hemlock Grove, a series for Netflix.
While plot details for the film were not revealed, the title alone - The Green Inferno - conjured up speculation that Roth would be tapping into his love for films such as Cannibal Holocaust (pictured) and telling a, well, cannibal story. Turns out that speculation was correct as story details have leaked out.
Variety reports the film "follows an idealistic student and a group of naive do-gooders who are captured by cannibalistic Indios after their plane crash lands in the Peruvian jungle."
Eli Roth is set to direct his next horror thriller, The Green Inferno. Details on the film's plot have yet to be revealed.
Best known for horror entries like Hostel and Cabin Fever, Roth co-wrote the screenplay with Aftershock co-writer Guillermo Amoedo, from Roth's own original story.
Worldview Entertainment, a New York City-based motion picture production and investment company, has signed on to finance and produce.
