Soul.. she’s got it. As our production of the epic Disney’s JUNGLE CRUISE comes to an end – I’m a lucky SOB to have the incomparable one, Emily Blunt as my partner in crime, doin’ time on this boundless & wild journey. This is truly, the adventure of a lifetime. #LittleDittyBoutFrankAndLily #OnAndOn #DISNEY #JUNGLECRUISE 🚢🌴🗺❤️💫
The plot will be centered around the search for the mystical Tree of Life which is said to have curative powers. (No word yet if this will be connected to the Tree of Life that can be found in Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Florida.)
Dwayne Johnson is playing Frank, A witty riverboat captain cursed with immortality who takes Lily Houghton down the river. Blunt will play Lily Houghton, Spunky scientist in search of the Tree of Life. Her quest is inspired in part by the death of her brother which was caused by an infectious disease. Jack Whitehall will play Blunt’s brother. With Edgar Ramirez and Jesse Plemons joining as villains, and Paul Giamatti as crusty harbormaster. With an appearance by Trader Sam.
Jaume Collet-Serra (The Shallows, The Commuter) is set to direct the film, with Flavio Labiano (Non-Stop) as cinematographer, The Jungle Book VFX supervisor will also oversee VFX on Jungle Cruise.
