Daniel Radcliffe Returns to the Wilderness in First Trailer for ‘Jungle’

Written by on June 14, 2017 


The last time Daniel Radcliffe got stranded in the wilderness, he took on the form of a flatulent corpse in Swiss Army Man. Now Radcliffe is braving the elements yet again, with more life and less gas, in Jungle, from Wolf Creek and The Belko Experiment director Greg McLean.

Set in the 1980s and based on a true story, Jungle finds Radcliffe playing Israeli backpacker Yossi Ghinsberg, who gets separated from his friends after a rafting accident deep in the Bolivian jungle and has to struggle to find his way back to civilization. The film also stars Alex Russell, Joel Jackson and Thomas Kretschmann.

“[I]t’s an incredible survival story,” said McLean, “and incredibly emotional and spiritual because of what he goes through, what he loses and what he discovers. It’s an amazing story. And Daniel’s performance is extraordinary.”

Jungle will have its world premiere on August 3 at the 2017 Melbourne International Film Festival. You can watch the first trailer below.

In the early 1980s, 22-year-old Israeli backpacker Yossi Ghinsberg and two friends – Swiss teacher Marcus Stamm and American photographer Kevin Gale – set off from the Bolivian city of La Paz on what was supposed to be the adventure of a lifetime. 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.
