Get ready to ride the Jungle Cruise with The Rock! The Hollywood Reporter brings news that Dwayne Johnson is teaming up with Disney to bring a live-action film based on their popular theme park attraction, Jungle Cruise to theaters! Writer-director pair John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (Focus) will write the script for the film.
“[Disney production president] Sean Bailey and Disney have been awesome partners and now the fun part begins,” Johnson said. “We’re starting to put in the work with Requa and Ficarra and our creative team. Fired up about this one. Here we go.”
Disney has tried several times to bring a live action version of the Jungle Cruise to theaters, most recently in 2011 with Tom Hanks and Tim Allen to star, but it was Johnson that finally pushed this one to the finish line.
