Disney sets ‘Jungle Cruise’ with Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt for 2020

Disney has set their live-action Jungle Cruise adventure film for the 2020 summer.

Despite a ton of social media marketing, teases from stars Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, the film has been moved back from October 11, 2019 to  July 24, 2020.

The delay was announced by Johnson over his social media platforms, later confirmed in a Disney press release.

Comedian Jack Whitehall has also been cast in the film, with the THR summarizing that “Johnson will play a boat captain who takes his sister (Blunt) and her brother (Whitehall) on a mission to find a tree believed to possess healing powers. Wild animals and a competing German expedition figure into the proceedings.”

Edgar Ramirez (BrightThe Girl on the Train) plays the film’s antagonist: “…a man with a conquistador background who is one of the story’s villains.”

Jaume Collet-Serra, the filmmaker behind The Shallows and Liam Neeson films such as The Commuter and Non-Stop, will helm the project, which is set in the early 20th century and will take place in the Amazon jungle.

Beau Flynn, John Davis and John Fox are producing the pic, as are Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia. Scott Sheldon is co-producing. Michael Green, who penned Logan and the latest remake of Murder on the Orient Express, wrote the most recent draft of the script.
