Dwayne Johnson to Star in "Jungle Cruise," Based on Disney's Theme Park Ride

Posted: August 20th, 2015 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Dwayne Johnson to Star in "Jungle Cruise," Based on DisneySubmit Comment
Just like Disney did with "Pirates of the Caribbean," the studio is attempting to take its theme park ride and turn it into a film franchise. This time, Disney is attempting to do that with the classic Jungle Cruise ride.

The studio has attached Dwayne Johnson to star. Meanwhile, "Focus" and "Crazy, Stupid, Love" directors John Requa and Glenn Ficarra have been brought on to write the script. They are not currently attached to direct.

Disney has been trying to make a "Jungle Cruise" movie since 2004, with Tom Hanks and Tim Allen attached to star as early as 2011.

Jungle Cruise is one of the Disneyland's original rides and has a retro adventure vibe, transporting parkgoers into different African settings such as the Nile River and Congo River, encountering rhinos and hippos and headhunters along the way. There's an Amazon River section featuring piranhas.

While the 2011 attempt was to be set in modern times, the new version will bring the project back to its period roots and take inspiration from the 1951 Humphrey Bogard and Katharine Hepburn adventure movie "The African Queen."
