Still intends to scare up moviegoers after "Pulse", Jonathan Tucker has shown his agreement to take part in thriller horror flick "The Ruins" that BenderSpink and Red Hour Films are developing for DreamWorks SKG to distribute across the U.S., The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
An adaptation of the best-selling Scott B. Smith novel, the project will find the actor play a go-getter premed student named Jeff who persuades a group of Americans vacationing in Mexico to come along with him on remote archaeological dig in the jungle. Unbeknownst to them all, something evil is living among the ruins.
Principal photography on the movie is due to begin late May this year in Queensland, Australia under the direction of Maine-born filmmaker Carter Smith who is set to helm from script written by Scott B. Smith himself. Red Hour Films' execs Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld have been confirmed to produce alongside Chris Bender of BenderSpink.
