As we mentioned in Sam’s birthday post – he managed to miss his entire birthday as he was on his way out to Fiji to begin filming on Adrift opposite Shailene Woodley. If you haven’t heard about this one, then check out the synopsis below thanks to Variety:
“Adrift” is written and produced by Aaron and Jordan Kandell. Baltasar Kormákur will direct and produce the film under his RVK Studios banner, with production set to begin in June.
Woodley signed on to star in “Adrift” during the Berlin Film Festival, where STX began selling rights.
“Adrift” is based on the true story of Tami Oldham, who, after being knocked unconscious by the largest hurricane in the history of the Pacific Ocean, awakens to find her fiancé Richard Sharp badly injured, their boat in ruins, and no means of communication or navigation. She must race against the clock to save herself and the only man she’s ever loved.
The premise of the film sounds really interesting & we can’t wait to hear more about it as filming progresses! Meanwhile Sam has taken to Instagram whilst over in Fiji to show us the beauty of the South Pacific country where he is currently staying and the warm welcome he got when he first arrived.
