The Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk
Thursday, February 11, 2016
Queensland welcomes international production Jungle. Queensland is opening its doors to another major film production with Arclight Films and producer Dana Lustig bringing the thriller Jungle, announced Premier and Arts Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk.
“Jungle stars Daniel Radcliffe (Kill Your Darlings, Swiss Army Man – just picked up for distribution at Sundance by a24, and Harry Potter films) and Queenslanders Alex Russell (Goldstone, Unbroken), Jason Clarke (Everest, Zero Dark Thirty) along with Ryan Corr (The Water Diviner, Where the Wild Things Are) and commences production in April,” the Premier said.
“Based on the internationally bestselling memoir of the same name by Yossi Ghinsberg, the feature film tells the story of four travellers who set off into the heart of the Amazon rainforest on a dream adventure which quickly turns into a nightmare.
“We are starting off the year strong with another production to shoot in Queensland offering over 100 jobs and injecting approximately $5.4 million into our local economy,” the Premier said.
“Jungle will be shooting at least 50 per cent of the production on location in South East Queensland as well as the Village Roadshow Studios with other locations still to be determined.
“This follows on from back-to-back productions filming in Queensland including The Nest, The Shallows, Kong: Skull Island which commenced in January and with Thor hot on its heels to begin principal photography.
“With the imminent opening of Australia’s biggest sound stage at Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast, we deserve our reputation as a film destination of choice for domestic and international producers,” Ms Palaszczuk said.
Queensland-based producer Todd Fellman (Daybreakers, Mental) of Story Bridge Films is behind Jungle and working with Arclight Films.
It is being directed by Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, Wolf Creek 2), written by Justin Monjo (Rush, The Untold Story of INXS), and produced by Gary Hamilton, Mark Lazarus, Mike Gabrawy, Dana Lustig and McLean.
“We have made it our mission to bring Australian films and Australian talent to the world stage through internationally accessible commercial films that highlight the amazing depth of talent to be found in Australia,” said Gary Hamilton, Managing Director of Arclight Films.
“We are excited to welcome Jungle to Queensland especially as it brings some big talent back home with actors Alex Russell whose career has taken off since starring in Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken and Jason Clarke,” commented Screen Queensland Chair, Linda Apelt.
“The film will provide jobs, economic growth and the opportunity for our local crew and people to gain more experience and up-skill to further their careers and make our state even more attractive to producers,” Ms Apelt said.
JUNGLE tells the story of Yossi Ghinsberg, an enthusiastic young adventurer following his dreams, who heads into the Amazon jungle with two friends and a guide with a mysterious past. Their journey turns into a terrifying psychological ordeal and fight for survival as the darkest elements of human nature and the deadliest threats of the wilderness emerge to test their endurance.
JUNGLE is produced by Dana Lustig (Dancing at the Blue Laguna, Thousand Kisses Keep), Gary Hamilton (Lord of War, Bait 3D, The Bank Job), Mike Gabrawy (Resident Evil, Bait 3D, Outcast), and Greg Mclean (Wolk Creek, The Darkness). Executive producer is Todd Fellman (Bait 3D, A Few Best Men).
Screen Queensland acknowledges the financial support of Screen Australia in Jungle. Arclight Films is handling worldwide sales for the film."

No dogs were harmed during the production of this episode. A cat threw up and somebody shot a duck, but that's it." - The Simpsons
The 'no animals were harmed" message at the end of movies came about following the 1939 Jesse James film. In the film a horse was blindfolded and ridden over a cliff to its death. Animal safety concerns in the industry for the first time made front page news. The incident has been directly attributed to the establishment of the American Humane Society and with changing sensitivities the phrase became the trademark disclaimer for all movies involving animals.
A disclaimer in a film, novel or TV show are intended to reduce the possibility of legal proceedings or in the case of the animals disclaimer to also satisfy public confidence.
The "True Story Disclaimer" will normally be along the lines of "based on actual events" with some adding, "[but] changed for dramatic purposes". The "All Persons Disclaimer" is in every fictitious film, novel and TV show in some format. They come is various styles dealing with facts, people, characters and the wordings differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and so do the rules relating to how enforceable they are.
The typical "all persons disclaimer" would be something like this;
All characters appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental
The appropriate wording in a disclaimer is one of the last things looked at after we perform a pre-publication review of works.
Here are some of the more original disclaimers
The X-Files (TV SHOW/MOVIE)
This production has not been approved, endorsed or authorized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation
SOUTH PARK (TV SHOW)
All characters and events in this show —even those based on real people— are entirely fictional. All celebrity voices are impersonated ... poorly
MR MAGOO (MOVIE)
The preceding film is not intended as an accurate portrayal of blindness or poor eyesight
the great dictator (MOVIE)
Any resemblance between Hynkel the dictator and the Jewish barber is purely co-incidental
Any resemblance to actual events, to persons living or dead, is not the result of chance. It is DELIBERATE.
