Jungle Cruise (2020)

‘Jungle Cruise’ is an upcoming American adventure film based on the Disney theme park attraction of the same name. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, the film will star Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, and is set for release on July 24, 2020, by Walt Disney Pictures. The film is set in the 1930s during the Great Depression. Frank, a riverboat captain, takes a scientist and her brother on a mission into a jungle to find a tree believed to possess healing powers. All the while, the trio must fight against dangerous wild animals and a competing German expedition.

On August 9, 2015, it was announced that Walt Disney Pictures was redeveloping its film adaptation based on Jungle Cruises, to star Dwayne Johnson. The script will be written by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, and the film will be produced by John Davis and John Fox. The film is intended to hark back to its period roots. In April 2017, Johnson expressed his interest in having Patty Jenkins helm the project. In July 2017, Jaume Collet-Serra was announced as the director of the film, dropping out of ‘Suicide Squad 2’ in order to do so. In January 2018, Emily Blunt joined the cast. That same month, Michael Green was reported to have rewritten the script, previously worked on by Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne. In March 2018, Jack Whitehall joined the cast to portray the brother of Blunt’s character, although there was some backlash from the gay community about a straight actor playing a “camp gay character”. In April 2018, Édgar Ramírez and Jesse Plemons joined the cast to portray villains with the former being “a man with a conquistador background”. In May 2018, Paul Giamatti joined the cast to portray a “crusty harbormaster”. In June 2018, Quim Gutiérrez joined the cast to portray one of the villains.

Principal production commenced on May 14, 2018, in Hawaii. Johnson stated filming will begin proper the following week. Filming wrapped on September 14. ‘Jungle Cruise’ is set to be released by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures on July 24, 2020. The film was originally scheduled to be released on October 11, 2019, but on October 19, 2018, Johnson announced on behalf of Disney that the film had been delayed to 2020.
