"The River," from Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment, tracks the wife and son of a famous wildlife expert and TV personality who's disappeared in the Amazon. Their journey will be caught on film, verite-style, creating a pseudo-doc-within-a-drama. (That twist is courtesy of Oren Peli, creator of the low-budget blockbuster "Paranormal Activity," who came up with "The River's" story and is a series executive producer). Bruce Greenwood ("Star Trek"), Leslie Hope ("24"), Paul Blackthorne ("Lipstick Jungle") and Eloise Mumford ("Lone Star") lead the cast.
