Ruins = Turistas In Mexico

Music video filmmaker and photographer Carter Smith is set to direct an adaptation of “A Simple Plan” author Scott Smith’s novel “The Ruins” reports Production Weekly.

The “Turistas”-esque horror thriller follows four American friends on vacation in CancĂșn who meet a German tourist who persuades them to join his hunt for his younger brother.

The brother was last seen headed off with a new girlfriend toward some ruins, and the four soon regret their decision when they find themselves lost in the jungle.

Production is tentatively slated for early May in Queensland, Australia.
