Dwayne Johnson officially can’t get enough of punching large animals. The Hollywood Reporter revealed that fresh off Jumanji and about to start work on Rampage and Skyscraper (No large animals but a delightful sounding Towering Inferno/Die Hard combo), Johnson will then join Jungle Cruise.
This is the movie version of the Disney ride and we’re pretty sure it’s going to be wall-to-wall monstrous animal punching, waterfalls and Raiders of the Lost Ark style action. That’s absolutely Johnson’s bag and it’s great to see an actor not only find a groove but clearly have fun with doing so.
That being said, if it was an entirely faithful adaptation of the ride and was just Johnson telling Dad Jokes while we pootled along a river for twenty minutes we would be fine wit that too .
There’s no director yet but Jungle Cruise looks set to film sometime in 2018.
