and false starts, production is underway on Disney's movie version of its classic Jungle Cruise theme park ride.After years of rumors
Stars Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson dropped a teaser video via the Disney Studios' Twitter account today.
Disney's clearly going for a romcom vibe in the script by Logan's Michael Green, with references in the teaser to the 1950s The African Queen's Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart and the 1980s Romancing the Stone, with Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas. Will Blunt and Johnson succeed in sparking that level of on-screen chemistry? How many puns and references from the theme park ride will make it into director Jaume Collet-Serra's film?
We will find out when The Jungle Cruise arrives in theaters in October 2019. If you want to see more of Blunt in the meantime, her Mary Poppins Returns, co-starring Lin-Manuel Miranda, opens in December.Tweet
