As we reported in back in 2017, Dwayne Johnson is slated to star in the latest in a long line of Disney live-action films “The Jungle Cruise.” Slated to begin filming in 2018, the motion picture will be based on the classic Disney attraction of the same name that takes park guests on a journey through a range of landscapes including the Nile, the Congo and the Amazon.
Johnson has been attached to the project since 2015, but the role for a co-star has been on-going until this week with several news sources reported that Emily Blunt has signed on to join the cast. Jaume Collet-Serra is on board to the direct the film and the most recent draft of the screenplay is penned by Oscar Nominee Michael Green (Logan).
This film will mark the third time that Blunt has collaborated with Disney. Her previous projects include “Into the Woods” and the upcoming “Mary Poppins Returns” where she stars as the title character.
Disney has yet to announce an official premiere date for the project. Readers are encouraged to keep following along with Chip and Co. for the latest in Jungle Cruise news and updates.
