It worked for Pirates of The Caribbean, could it work for The Jungle Cruise?
Pirates of The Caribbean is a slow ride that’s good for making out with your significant other and see some animatronic pirates dance and sing. Yet when Disney threw Johnny Depp into a pirate suit and told him to act drunk, everyone ate it up. Can lightning strike twice for Disney?
Disney has hired screenwriter Roger S.H. Schulman to write a film adaptation of the Jungle Cruise ride and which will star Tom Hanks and Tim Allen.
According to Slash Film, it will be produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, who produced The Fighter. Schulman previously worked in the family genre with writing gigs on Shrek, The Jungle Book 2, Mulan 2 and on the currently Disney Channel show Jonas.
The Walt Disney Studios is excited to be in development with Mandeville Filmsand writer Roger S.H. Schulman on a feature film based on the Jungle Cruise, one of the most iconic attractions in Disney theme park history. The film will pair up Tim Allen and Tom Hanks in their first live-action project, after their previous collaborations in the Toy Story trilogy.
Will it be more of a Pirates, or a Haunted Mansion?
