A new project on the horizon that has the potential to be pretty cool is Safari, a found-footage thriller gearing up to start shooting on October 15th in Johannesburg, South Africa. Directed by Academy Award nominee Darrell Roodt (Little One, Yesterday) and written by Dark Was The Night scribe Tyler Hisel, the pedigree is right for this one to be a cut above.
The film “centers on a band of American tourists, stranded and hunted in the heart of the South African wilderness. Their struggle to survive the elements and the vicious predators lurking the African plain is documented by the video cameras meant to record their vacation.” Rocky Myers (Vamp U) and Kim Argetsinger (Foreign Exchange) are set to star.
I recently spent some time on the set of Hisel’s Dark Was The Night and that film, directed by Jack Heller, looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. So fingers crossed on this one!
