Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett Join "Jungle Book: Origins"

Posted: August 21st, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett Join "Jungle Book: Origins"Submit Comment
While Disney and director Jon Favreau are quickly assembling their "The Jungle Book" movie, Warner Bros and director Andy Serkis are working on their own version, called "Jungle Book: Origins," which will be released one year after Favreau's.

We already know that the killer tiger Shere Khan will be voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness) and now comes word that he'll be joined by Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Naomie Harris, Tom Hollander, Eddie Marsan and Peter Mullan.

Bale will voice Bagheera the panther, Blanchett will voice Kaa the python, Hollander will play Tabaque the jackal, Mullan will be Akela, the leader of the wolf pack that raises Mowgli. Harris is the female wolf Nisha, and Marsan is her mate, Vihaan. Serkis will also be part of the cast as Baloo the bear.

"Jungle Book: Origins" centers on Mowgli, an orphaned boy raised by wolves who befriends members of the animal kingdom who help him grow up. The new movie is set to hit theaters on October 21st, 2016.

Origins, huh? Not very original. Are they imagining a franchise? Out of The Jungle Book? Wow. So many stories and events and ideas out there and they're stuff recycling sh*t we've already seen.

Well, good luck, sad f*cks, you won't get my bucks.

Should have made a movie about black people in Ferguson, Missouri called The Jungle Crooks. I might actually pay to see that one if I hadn't already caught the teasers and trailers on CNN.

Stupid they are making these movies but that is one hell of a cast. I wonder why? Although Bale recently did "American Hustle" so I am inclined to think he is beginning to sell out. Sad.

Not necessary he must be getting paid big money

@Bando
That is code for selling out. LOL He's getting paid big money to do a big film that really has no reason to be made.

An all English Jungle Book ? So this means that the soundtrack will be ... wait for it... jungle electronica ?
