Best Dudes Films has shared the first trailer and stills from writer and director Stacy Brown Jr’s THE PIT. Brown’s debut feature follows a pair of longtime friends deep in the woods whose bond is sorely tested when survival is on the line.
Les Stroud (Discovery Channel‘s “Survivorman”) steps into the familiar character of Danny Coile, opposite Brown as Arron James. For those who are unfamiliar, Les Stroud is a Canadian survival expert, filmmaker, and musician best known as the creator, writer, producer, director, cameraman and host of the television series “Survivorman”.
While hiking in an isolated forest, survivalist Danny Coile and his old Army buddy Arron James become hopelessly trapped when they fall into a deep cenote with no way out. Over the next 50 days, they transform from mild-mannered old friends into vicious, bloodthirsty animals willing to do whatever it takes to survive.
THE PIT will be released this year. Stay tuned for updates on the release date.
