[h=2]Dwayne Johnson to star in Disney’s Jungle Cruise[/h]The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Dwayne Johnson is teaming up with Disney for a live-action film based on their popular theme park attraction, Jungle Cruise. Writer-director pair John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (Focus, Crazy, Stupid, Love.) will pen the script for the film. They are currently not attached to direct at this time.
“[Disney production president] Sean Bailey and Disney have been awesome partners and now the fun part begins,” Johnson said. “We’re starting to put in the work with Requa and Ficarra and our creative team. Fired up about this one. Here we go.”
A film adaptation of the ride, one of the original rides from the opening day of Disneyland, was previously in development with a script by Al Gough and Miles Millar (Spider-Man 2, “Smallville”). Another attempt was made in 2011 with Disney officially announcing an adaptation starring Toy Story‘s own Tom Hanks and Tim Allen. Neither versions ultimately materialized.
Should this version become a reality, it would join the ranks of films Disney has created based on their theme park attractions, including The Country Bears, The Haunted Mansion, Mission to Mars, Tomorrowland, and the most popular, Pirates of the Caribbean.
Johnson can next be seen in the CIA comedy Central Intelligence, and heard in the animated Disney film Moana, both of which hit theaters next year.

One of my favorite and its always the first ride I get onto when I arrive at Disney's Magic Kingdom. And skippers are always entertaining.

Sounds interesting. But based on how well Tomorrowland did I'm not sure how much of a success this will be

We will see. I've yet need to watch Tomorrowland. This movie will be focusing on one attraction though so it won't be called Adventure Land which also includes Pirates of the Caribbean.
