Dwayne Johnson is going to have an adventurous ride with Disney. As per reports, Johnson has teamed up with Disney to star in its movie “Jungle Cruise,” which is based on a classical ride. Read on to know more details.

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are going to work on the script for the movie. The duo are well known for thier contribution to Will Smith’s heist film “Focus.” They have also directed several other movies like “Crazy”, “Stupid” and “Love.”

John Fox and John Davis of Davis Entertainment are producing the movie.

The involvement of Johnson has once again opened the doors to the Jungle to explore much excitement for the fans.

The studio has been planning to come up with this project since 2004, when the epic film “Pirates of the Caribbean” created records at the box office.

In 2011, Disney had considered developing the project starring Tim Allen and Tom Hanks along with writer Roger S.H. Schulman.

“Jungle Cruise” is said to be a retro adventure vibe and one of original rides of Disneyland, making the parkgoers to feel a melange of African settings like Congo River and Nile River along the way, encountering hippos, rhinos and headhunters. It has also an Amazon River section that features piranhas.

Meanwhile, the project is in the early stage of development, and it is difficult to say how it will fit to the busy schedule of Johnson. The Rock has currently two projects which are going to keep him busy – “Central Intelligence,” an action comedy movie of New Line, shooting of which is on, and another is “Baywatch,” production of which is set to start early next year.

Besides, Johnson is also going to cast in “Fast & Furious” movie, New Line’s video game adaptation “Rampage,” and to give voice in Disney’s animated project “Moana.”
