Daniel Radcliffe is fast becoming the king of independent cinema with strong roles in a series of diverse projects including Horns, Swiss Army Man and Imperium. But his latest project, the harrowing true-life survival tale of Jungle, appears to have really pushed him over the edge.
When would-be adventurer Yossi Ghinsberg (Radcliffe) sets off into the wild jungles of Bolivia he believes he’ll experience the thrill of a lifetime and discover who he really is. But a fraudulent guide, no map and the hostilities of the Amazon soon overpower him, and he is left stranded in the middle of nowhere with no way out and at the mercy of mother nature.
Check out the freaky new trailer below:
Jungle appears to be a particularly harrowing tale and Radcliffe’s physical and mental deterioration will undoubtedly make for a difficult, but enthralling watch.
Jungle will be released later this year.
