Dan is ready to take a step into the jungle based on the true story of Yossi Ghinsberg, Kevin Gale and Markus Stamm who went into the Amazon with a guide in what turned out to be a dangerous and deadly expedition in search of an Indian camp which didn’t exist. If your curious to see more about the plot you can view the video via youtube on the real men that went treking into the Amazon.
In December 1981, Yossi Ghinsberg (Israeli), Kevin Gale (American), and Markus Stamm (Swiss), are three young friends who went to the Bolivian Amazon, where they encounter Karl Ruprechter, a man with promises of an Indian village. After a brief river rafting trip, Markus notices he has trench foot and the group splits up. Kevin and Yossi continue rafting while Markus and Karl hike back into the jungle, never to be seen again.
Greg Mclean (Wolf Creek) will direct the psychological thriller based on a script by fellow Australian Justin Monjo. Screen Australia and Screen Queensland have supported development and invested in the project, which is eyeing a shoot later in 2016 in Australia, among other locations.
“We’re extremely excited about Daniel Radcliffe joining the cast of Jungle,” says Gary Hamilton, managing director of Arclight Films. “He has an enthusiastic global fan-base, a wide range as an actor as evident by his diversity of roles and is known for picking out unique and interesting projects.”
Daniel Radcliffe is in negotiations to star in Grand Theft Auto, a true-life account of a fight between the creator of Grand Theft Auto and a Miami lawyer who wanted to ban video game violence.
Rising British director Owen Harris, who directed episodes of Britain’s Misfits and Black Mirror, is helming the drama, which is being made by BBC Films.
Radcliffe will play Sam Houser, the British co-founder and president of Rockstar Games, the company behind GTA as well as games such as Max Payne and Red Dead. He is credited in popularizing GTA into one of the video game world’s biggest franchises but also amping up the violence quotient.
In the first decade of the 21st century, Houser and Rockstar Games came under repeated attacks from activist attorney Jack Thompson. Thompson was an unorthodox Florida attorney who was already attacking media companies for pushing rap and sex onto the airwaves when he turned his attention to what he saw as an obsession of glorifying violence in the video game industry. GTA was one of his favorite targets. He was disbarred in 2008 for inappropriate behavior.
The part of Thompson has not been cast yet.
James Wood wrote the script for the project, which was previously titled Rockstar Games. The title could change again. Jim Spencer is producing while Mark Hedgecoe will exec produce.
The movie is slated to begin shooting April 20.
