According to a report in Variety, Hollywood actress Emily Blunt will feature in Disney's Jungle Cruise alongside actor Dwayne Johnson.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Johnson had recently featured in the 800 million dollars worldwide box office hit, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Next on the Rock's docket is Rampage, based on the video game of the same name.

Jaume Collet-Serra (The Shallows, The Commuter) will direct the live-action adventure. Jungle Cruise is another addition to Disney's impressive lineup of films which comprises Mary Poppins Returns, Aladdin and Dumbo. Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Michael Green is handling the latest rewrite of the script, originally handled by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay. Reportedly, early footage of her in the film has left Disney executives supremely impressed and wanting to "keep her in the family". The film is based on the classic theme park attraction, which operates in several Disney Parks across the globe and takes guests on a guided tour through the rivers of the world.

Trump May Ask Sessions to Prosecute Mueller
Trump has already unsuccessfully tried to order his White House counsel to fire Mueller , according to The New York Times . He said he is looking forward to testifying before Mueller's lawyers and would do it under oath.

Jungle Cruise might seem like a odd source for an adaptation, but given that there is no storyline attached to the attraction the filmmakers basically have carte blanche to do as they please.

Johnson and the team see the film inspired by "The African Queen" starring Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn and hope to see the similar kind of chemistry with this pairing. But Johnson nearly always brings a light tough to his action films, and Blunt's good with a quick line, too, so who knows?
