We Dare You to Survive Greg McLean’s Jungle



Australian filmmaker Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, The Belko Experiment) will be premiering his latest film Jungle at this year’s Melbourne International Film Festival on August 3rd (tickets here). To celebrate the premiere, the first trailer for the film has been released and it shows the intensity and ferocity of the story, which is based on the real-life experiences of Israeli backpacker Yossi Ghinsberg, played by Daniel Radcliffe.

Jungle‘s cast also includes Thomas Kretschmann, Alex Russell, Joel Jackson, and Yasmin Kassim.

The thriller is based on memoir of the same name by Yossi Ghinsberg and follows the story of three young men who enter the Amazonian jungle with a mysterious guide.

McLean will produce the project, along with Dana Lustig, Gary Hamilton, Mike Gabrawy and Todd Fellman. Arclight Films is handling worldwide sales and is packaging the film.

In the early 1980s, 22-year-old Israeli backpacker Yossi Ghinsberg and two friends – Swiss teacher Marcus Stamm and American photographer Kevin Gale – set off from the Bolivian city of La Paz on what was supposed to be the adventure of a lifetime. Leading the way into the uncharted Amazon was an Austrian expat named Karl Ruprechter, who had met the friends just days before and claimed to be familiar with the region. But their dream trip soon turned into a wilderness nightmare from which not all of the men returned.
