“Kruger” marks the directorial debut for British actor-producer Craig Conway (“Giantland”). The project is fully financed by Goldfinch Entertainment, and produced by Kirsty Bell and Craig Conway of Bird Box Pictures, a Goldfinch Studio company.

The movie is set within the vast and dangerous backdrop of South Africa’s Kruger National Park, focusing on a dysfunctional family’s attempts to survive. Casting is under way. “Kruger” was unveiled Saturday at the American Film Market in Santa Monica.

Kaleidoscope’s Spencer Pollard said: “We are excited to be working with Goldfinch Studios on this highly commercial genre film that we believe stands every chance of standing out in the marketplace next year. Craig’s vision and the team behind the film should lead to a lot of interest as we package the film and announce cast in the near future.”

Conway recently starred opposite Olga Kurylenko in “Mara,” produced by Scott Mann and directed by Clive Tongue. He also stars alongside Pierce Brosnan in Mann’s “Final Score,” and will be joining the cast of Neil Marshall’s “Hellboy.”

Conway is represented by Elaine Murphy Associates and Marc Von Arx at Nelson Davis.
