Dwayne Johnson to star in Disney’s Jungle Cruise.

Dwayne Johnson is teaming up with Disney for a live-action film based on their popular theme park attraction, Jungle Cruise. Writer-director pair John Requa and Glenn Ficarra will pen the script for the film.

A film adaptation of the ride, one of the original rides from the opening day of Disneyland, was previously in development with a script by Al Gough and Miles Millar (Spider-Man 2, “Smallville”). Another attempt was made in 2011 with Disney officially announcing an adaptation starring Toy Story‘s own Tom Hanks and Tim Allen.
