According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dominic Purcell (“Prison Break” and Dracula from Blade: Trinity) and Orlando Jones are set to star in Primeval for director Michael Katleman and Touchstone Pictures.
The film is described as a high-stakes adventure following a news producer, reporter and cameraman who are dispatched to South Africa to track down and bring home alive a legendary 25-foot crocodile known as Gustave. However, their quarry proves far more elusive and deadly than they anticipated, and their situation turns even more perilous when a feared warlord targets them for death. Purcell plays the producer, while Jones portrays the cameraman.
The script was written by John Brancato and Michael Ferris and was inspired by a man-eating crocodile in Africa.
