“I have been to Gabon, the Namibian desert, on a riding safari in Kenya and diving in the Galapagos. It is very much in my nature to want to go to remote places,” said the actress.
Harvey Weinstein revealed that he’d long been a fan of Thor Heyerdahl’s book. “I read it in grade school and it was so good that I made a show-and-tell presentation in class with index cards and a book report,” he recalled.
The Weinstein Company film depicts the true story of Heyerdahl, who sailed 4,300 miles in 100 days across the Pacific in 1947 to prove that Peruvians settled Polynesia.
