Hear from Idris, producer Will Packer and visceral director, Baltasar Kormákur in the brand new featurette below:
Elba plays Dr. Nate Daniels, a recently widowed husband who returns to South Africa, where he first met his wife, on a long-planned trip with their daughters to a game reserve managed by Martin Battles (Sharlto Copley), an old family friend and wildlife biologist. But what begins as a journey of healing jolts into a fearsome fight for survival when a lion, a survivor of blood-thirsty poachers who now sees all humans as the enemy, begins stalking them.
Iyana Halley plays Daniels’ 18-year-old daughter, Meredith, and Leah Sava Jeffries plays his 13-year-old, Norah.
The film is written by Ryan Engle from an original story by Jaime Primak Sullivan and is executive produced by Jaime Primak Sullivan and Bernard Bellew.
