Jungle is based on true events, This time Daniel Radcliffe goes to the extreme in his upcoming survival thriller Jungle, it looks smashing! It is based on the real-life events of Yossi Ghinsberg, an Israeli backpacker who is played by Radcliffe. He started his journey in the Bolivian city of La Paz, on what was thought to be the adventure of a lifetime with two of his friends.
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.
When talking to EW last year about the film Radcliffe told:
“It’s about this guy that got lost in the jungle and survived on his own for three weeks. It’s testing everybody: the crew, myself, everyone. It’s a very intense but a very seriously fun shoot.”
Jungle will hit theaters and VOD on October 20th and it looks like an epic adventure movie.
