Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong'o in Talks for "The Jungle Book"

Posted: April 24th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Scarlett Johansson and Lupita NyongSubmit Comment
It was recently reported that Jon Favreau (Iron Man) signed on to direct Disney's upcoming live-action/CG version of "The Jungle Book." And now comes word that Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong'o are in talks to join the production.

Johansson will voice the character of Kaa, the python who eats other animals by hypnotizing them. Kaa is the movie's second villain after Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger being voiced by Idris Elba.

Nyong'o, who just won an Oscar for her role in "12 Years a Slave," will play Rakcha, a mother wolf who adopts Mowgli.

The part of Mowgli has yet to be cast. "The Jungle Book" is set to hit theaters on October 9th, 2015.

C'mon, Fav. We all know what you're thinking. Just go ahead and give the two of them a hot jungle sex scene together; white on dark chocolate.

They will have to make the CG pretty damn impressive to work alongside live-action elements.

Johansson will voice the character of Kaa, the python who eats other animals by hypnotizing them ... much like Johansson does right now, wearing very tight clothing and luring men, so she can allure them with her incredible ... mind.

Nyong'o, who just won an Oscar for her role in "12 Years a Slave," will play Rakcha, a mother wolf who adopts Mowgli ... Wow! Disney's gonna do some beastility/cougar action!

Papa Disney must be proud and beaming up from Hell!

Jeez people, do you read? Scarlett's doing a VOICE, not a live-action role.

So quick to joke, so quick to look stupid.



"So is lupita voicing a monkey?"


Uh, no. If you had read the so-called article, you'd see where it says she's voicing the role of the wolf that adopts Mowgli.

SMH.

Ugh. "You and the rest of the brain trust", which doesn't sound nearly as concise.
