Starring James Wolk, Kristen Connolly, Billy Burke, Nora Arnezeder and Nonso Anoziehe, the thriller about a wave of violent animal attacks against humans is based on James Patterson’s bestselling novel by the same name.
“James Wolk will play Jackson Oz, a young, renegade American zoologist who spends his days running safaris in the wilds of Africa when he begins noticing the strange behavior of the animals,” a synopsis said. “As the assaults become more cunning, coordinated and ferocious, he is thrust into the race to unlock the mystery of the pandemic before there’s no place left for people to hide.” [CBS]
