Disney cast actor-comedian, Jack Whitehall in the highly anticipated film Jungle Cruise. Dwayne Johnson was cast earlier in the year with Emily Blunt to follow soon after. Whitehall plays Blunt’s brother in the film, another lead role in the movie. The British comedian and actor round out the comedic cast!
The Jungle Cruise is a famous theme park attraction found at several Disney parks. Disney hopes to bring the ride to life in a live-action comedic thriller. Disney plans to franchise the Jungle Cruise movie and build an empire like the billion-dollar Pirates of the Caribbean series.
“Jaume Collet-Serra is on board to direct the movie based on the classic theme park attraction, which operates in several Disney Parks across the globe and takes guests on a guided tour through the rivers of the world. Oscar nominee Michael Green (“Logan”) penned the most recent draft of the script. He rewrote a screenplay by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay.”-Variety
