JUNGLE CRUISE: Dwayne Johnson Reveals New Film Information

Jungle Cruise

Dwayne Johnson reveals new Jungle Cruise film information via Instagram. Not too long ago, it was announced that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would star in a movie based on the classic Disneyland attraction, after over a decade in development limbo. This time, it looks like they could be serious about making this film happen.

Johnson was recently at a meeting about Jungle Cruise with writers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. He posted a photo on Instagram pointing at a screen that shows the Jungle Cruise entrance with this message:

“Pumped to kick off the writing for our Disney’s JUNGLE CRUISE. Great meeting w/ our writers Requa & Ficarra who last wrote and directed FOCUS w/ Will Smith and BAD SANTA w/ Billy Bob Thornton. Our goal is to push the envelope in a smart, edgy, epically fun way. Johnny Depp raised the bar with PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN.. now it’s our turn at bat to take an iconic Disney attraction and hopefully turn it into something dope and cool. I’ll keep y’all posted along the way. Here we go…

#BigAdventureAwaits #ItsAPeriodMovie #DamnRightIWillStillBeHandsomeInThe1920s #JungleCruise”

What Johnson wrote was more to give hype to the fact that he’ll make Jungle Cruise enjoyable. The substantive information came from his hashtags, giving everyone an idea of what the Jungle Cruise film will be about. The film will be set in the 1920s, back in a period where hunting wild African animals was considered a popular rich-man’s sport. Will Johnson create another Pirates of the Caribbean film?

No other information has been revealed about the Jungle Cruise film. Disney has yet to even announce a release date for it. If this film finally comes to fruition, audience may actually get to see The Rock handsome in the 1920s.
