A movie about Disney World’s Jungle Cruise is in the works, with Dwayne Johnson set to star.
Writers and Crazy Stupid Love collaborators John Requa and Glenn Ficarra are set to write the script. John Davis and John Fox from Davis Entertainment will produce.
The film has been in the works for a while and previously attached Tom Hanks and Tim Allen to the star role. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it will be a period piece.
Other ride-inspired Disney films are in the works, including a new Haunted Mansion film starring Ryan Gosling. Eddie Murphy starred in an earlier Haunted Mansion film, which performed poorly at the box office.
Johnson just recently starred in the summer action film San Andreas and is currently starring in HBO’s new series Ballers. He also recently wrapped up filming Central Intelligence, which will premiere next summer, and will shoot the comedy Baywatch beginning in 2016.
