Kevin Bacon is in talks to join “Wolf Creek” helmer Greg McLean’s true story thriller “Jungle” which Justin Monjo is penning the script for.
The story follows the novel by Yossi Ghinsberg about the enthusiastic adventurer’s terrorizing trip to the Amazon jungle with a sketchy Austrian guide (Bacon) and two pals.
The journey turned into a terrifying psychological ordeal, with the wilderness testing their endurance. Filming begins early next year in Australia and Colombia.
Mclean and Bacon recently worked together on the microbudget thriller “6 Miranda Drive”.
