Safari, a found-footage thriller, is 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.
That 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. Today word has come that Truth or Die director Robert Heath is also making a movie called Safari, and this one has been penned by Jason Arnopp. In it “two young couples head off on a safari into the wilds of southern Africa, but their dream trip turns into a nightmare as nature bites back.” Shooting on this one begins in 2013.
