First Anaconda Movie
Sony released the first “Anaconda” movie in 1997, which was a horror-thriller starring Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube, Eric Stoltz, Jon Voight, and Owen Wilson. Luis Llosa directed the movie, the storyline centered on Jennifer Lopez’ character leading a documentary film crew searching for a long-lost tribe along the Amazon River, only to watch the journey taken over by a wicked snake hunter, played by Voight, heading to several horrific confrontations with a massive green serpent.
Movie Was A Success In Box Office
The 1997 Anaconda movie earned 3 times the budget of the movie in the box office, which was a grand success with a worldwide gross of $135 million. The budget for the film was $45 million. The box office success led to a 2004 sequel “Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid,” set in Borneo, as the protagonists explored a life-extending flower on a remote island inhabited by deadly snakes. After that, a series of “Anaconda” TV movies were released in 2008, 2009, and 2015’s which are “Anaconda 3: Offspring,” “Anacondas: Trail of Blood,” and “Lake Placid vs. Anaconda.”
Daugherty’s honors include co-writing of “Snow White and the Huntsman” of 2012 with Hossein Amini and John Lee Hancock; and 2014’s “Divergent” with Vanessa Taylor. He also got a story credit on 2017’s “Tomb Raider,” starring Alicia Vikander.
