Daniel Radcliffe to star in psychological thriller Jungle

News straight from the Berlin International Film Festival: The Hollywood reporter is reporting that Daniel will star in the psychological thriller Jungle which is based on Yossi Ghinsberg's book about his trip into the Amazon. The article is also shared on Daniel's official Google+ page.

Greg Mclean is directing the film about a young adventurer who heads into the Amazon in what turns out to be a dangerous and deadly expedition. Greg Mclean also is producing along with Dana Lustig, Gary Hamilton and Mike Gabrawy while Todd Fellman will executive produce. Arclight Films is packaging the film and handling worldwide sales at EFM.

“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.”
Variety is reporting that the film will shoot at least 50% on location in South East Queensland as well as at the Village Roadshow Studios on Queensland’s Gold Coast. Other locations have still to be determined. And also that production starts in April.

I'm incredibly excited and honoured to have a role in furthering people's awareness of what happened to Yossi Ghinsberg, Kevin Gale and Markus Stamm. Their story is a truly remarkable one that sheds light on both harrowing and hopeful aspects of human nature. It should be a very intense and physical shoot (obviously we wouldn't be doing our jobs if it wasn't) and I can't wait to start work on it. -Dan
