Pic will be directed by Nicolas Lopez, whose "Aftershock" (produced by Roth) bowed at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Roth will present and produce the sequel, and co-script with Guillermo Amoedo and Lopez.
CAA, which is repping "Inferno" in Toronto, arranged financing and will rep domestic rights for the sequel.
Although plot details are staying in the pot for now, principal lensing will start in spring 2014 in Chile and Peru, where the original was also shot.
Buyer interest in "Inferno" fired up Sunday, with a U.S. sale of the pic (which closed deals for numerous territories pre-fest) expected before the end of the festival.
Roth is also in Toronto as producer of Ti West's "The Sacrament"--which Roth described to Variety as "very smart, dark, straight-up go-for-the-throat horror." The pic world preems Sunday night in the Vanguard program.
