Chockstone Pictures has acquired the rights to Washington Post South American correspondent Monte Reel‘s non-fiction book The Last of the Tribe: The Epic Quest to Save a Lone Man in the Amazon, and have hired Doug Liman to direct. Mark Bailey is adapting the screenplay.
Liman is best known as the director of Swingers, The Bourne Identity, Mr. And Mrs. Smith and Jumper. The Last of the Tribe is about the search for the last surviving member of an Amazon tribe from the perspective of the government officials charged with finding him, and “preserving his way of life.”
