Cannes: ‘Wolf Creek’ Director Greg McLean Heads to ‘Jungle’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Aussie director Greg McLean is heading to the wilderness, coming on board to direct the thriller “Jungle.” Shooting is set for Bolivia and the rainforest on Australia’s Gold Coast.

Arclight Films is handling worldwide sales and will be presenting the project to buyers in Cannes. CAA is packaging the film and represents the U.S. distribution rights.

McLean directed both “Wolf Creek” movies and “Rogue.” He’s currently shooting “6 Miranda Drive,” starring Kevin Bacon and Radha Mitchell.

“Jungle” is produced by Dana Lustig, Gary Hamilton and Mike Gabrawy. Screen Australia and Screen Queensland have been supporting development of the project.

Based on Yossi Ghinsberg’s memoir “Lost in the Jungle,” the movie tells the story of a young man with adventurous dreams who heads into the Bolivian jungle with two friends and a fraudulent guide. Their journey soon turns into a frightening psychological test of faith and human fortitude.

McLean is represented by CAA and Mosaic.
