WATCH: ‘Tales from the Jungle’ star Jordan Peele on his new movie with Oscar nominee Josh Brolin (Exclusive)

In his latest project, “Tales From the Jungle,” actor Jordan Panez has directed his first feature film, which he has described as a “mystery thriller” about the life of a young boy who discovers the meaning of life and the importance of believing in yourself.

In a short clip released online on Wednesday, Paneze tells the audience he hopes to tell a story that can inspire a sense of wonder and wonderment.

The story is about a young man who meets a mysterious stranger in a jungle.

“The first thing that I did was, I started looking for a name for the character,” Paneez said in the clip.

“I thought about the name of my father, a guy named Pancho who was the first American to reach the island of Borneo and find a way to escape the slave trade, and I thought about how that was my name and how that’s what it was about.”

Panezes mother, a Haitian woman, was born in Paris, France.

I was born on Borneos [in] the jungle, on the island that we all know, the island where I’m from. “

And that’s where my name came from.

“There are so many things that I love about that story. “

I think I’ll continue to write about it.” “

There are so many things that I love about that story.

I think I’ll continue to write about it.”

Piles up a number of awards for his film including the National Film Board of Canada’s Lifetime Achievement Award and the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Feature Film.

“Tale from the Sea” is scheduled to hit theaters on May 17, 2018.
