Jonathan Tucker (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre; pictured inside) is heading for The Ruins, DreamWorks’ adaptation of the best-selling Scott B. Smith novel. Red Hour Films’ Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld are producing along with Chris Bender, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Tucker will star as Jeff, a go-getter premed student, in the thriller about a group of friends whose leisurely Mexican holiday takes a turn for the worse when Jeff persuades them to accompany a fellow tourist on a remote archaeological dig in the jungle, where something evil lives among the ruins. Smith wrote the screenplay. Principal photography begins in late May in Queensland, Australia.
