Based on Yossi Ghinsberg's best-selling book and his incredible true story of survival. The script was written by Justin Monjo, who just completed writing Phillip Noyce's next movie, "Dirt Music" to star Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz.
The story was recently featured as a docudrama on the Discovery Channel's series, "I Shouldn't Be Alive," and Yossi was invited for an interview on Larrry King Live a couple of months ago.
To be co-produced with Emile Sherman as an Australian production.
Yossi, a young enthusiastic man with adventurous dreams, heads into the Bolivian jungle with two friends and a fraudulent guide, only to face frightening psychological tests of faith and human fortitude against the deadliest threats of the wilderness. Beyond the thrills and the action, this movie is a rite of passage; it's about finding the hero within yourself and turning "the jungle", the biggest enemy, into a provider and savior by embracing it.
