Lions and Hyenas Litter ‘Kalahari’ Desert

Recently completing the action thriller Vehicle 19, South African writer-director Mukunda Michael Dewil is headed to the Kalahari Desert to take on the wild in a new survival horror flick.

Dewil will get behind the camera for Kalahari, says Screen Daily. The pic is described as “Open Water but with lions and hyenas in the desert” by producer Peter Safran (Buried).

Dewil and Safran reteam with producer Ryan Haidarian who worked together on the Paul Walker-starrer Vehicle 19.
