Laura Ramsey, Jena Malone and Shawn Ashmore will star in DreamWorks and Spyglass Entertainment’s The Ruins, the adaptation of the bestselling Scott B. Smith novel. Red Hour Films’ Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld are producing along with Chris Bender.
The three actors join Jonathan Tucker in a thriller about a group of friends whose leisurely Mexican holiday takes a turn for the worse when they accompany a fellow tourist on a remote archaeological dig in the jungle, where something evil lives among the ruins.
Smith wrote the screenplay. Principal photography begins in late May in Queensland, Australia.
