Production is scheduled to commence in South Africa on Oct 15.

Thaba Media’s project will shoot in Johannesburg and is based on US writer Tyler Hisel’s screenplay about American tourists stranded in the South African wilderness.

Roodt, whose credits include Winnie starring Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard, will direct Rocky Myers, Kim Argetsinger, Chloe Kirby and Robert Watkins.

Anton Ernst of Thaba Media is producing Safari and Hisel and manager Alexander Robb of Insignia Entertainment are on board as executive producers.
