Probably not. He's rather conservative in real life.

I think you are thinking of Favreau's Magic Kingdom, which is still in development. I don't think he was ever attached to Jungle Cruise.

Jaume Collet-Serra To Direct Dwayne Johnson In ‘Jungle Cruise’: No ‘Suicide Squad 2’


Quote:
EXCLUSIVE: Jaume Collet-Serra has been set by Disney to direct Dwayne Johnson in Jungle Cruise. This means that Collet-Serra will withdraw from Suicide Squad 2, the Warner Bros sequel for which he was top choice. After directing a bunch of hit movies that included last summer’s sleeper The Shallows, Collet-Serra has been poised to take that step to star filmmaker, and numerous studios chased his next slot. He decided that the opportunity to originate a new Indiana Jones-like action-adventure franchise in lockstep with one of the most globally bankable film stars — like Gore Verbinski did with Johnny Depp in The Pirates of the Caribbean — was a better opportunity than continuing a storyline originated by another director. Production will begin late next spring.

Yeah can't say I don't blame him. Seems like a good opportunity. The Rock needs to start cranking out more films before he runs for office in 2020 though.

Honestly he should run on that "if the phone rings at 3am, who's gonna pick up?" slogan, cuz I really don't think Dwayne Johnson ever sleeps.

My thoughts exactly. He's already done Journey 2 the Mysterious Island, he's got Jumanji coming out this year and now Jungle Cruise. The latter two especially seem very similar.

He's not too much of a challenging actor. I like Johnson just fine but he's certainly no thespian.

I actually think he has a decent amount of range yet very rarely goes out of his comfort zone. Pain & Gain vs. Snitch vs. Central Intelligence are all pretty different roles and I think he did them all very well.

I'd love to see him work with someone like Soderbergh.

Emily Blunt to Star With Dwayne Johnson in Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise’ (EXCLUSIVE)
Justin Kroll - January 30, 2018


Emily Blunt is set to star alongside Dwayne Johnson in Disney’s “Jungle Cruise,” sources tell Variety.

Jaume Collet-Serra is on board to direct the film based on the Walt Disney World ride. Oscar nominee Michael Green (“Logan”) penned the most recent draft of the script. He rewrote a screenplay by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay. 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.

Disney sees the film as another major franchise in the vein of its billion dollar “Pirates of the Caribbean” series and Johnson and Collet-Serra have found time in the stars busy schedule to map out how they see this film going.

Johnson and the team see the film inspired by “The African Queen” starring Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn and hope to see the similar kind of chemistry with this pairing. Sources say Disney has been over the moon with early footage of Blunt in “Mary Poppins” returns and was looking for a way to keep her in the family with another potential franchise.

Johnson is coming off his monster hit “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” which just crossed the $800 million world wide box office milestone which includes $337 million at the domestic box office. The star has busy 2018 ahead of him with his tentpoles “Rampage” and “Skyscraper” both bowing this year.

John Davis and John Fox will produce via Davis Entertainment; Beau Flynn will produce with his FlynnPictureCo. banner; and Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia will produce through Seven Bucks Productions. Scott Sheldon is co-producing.

“Jungle Cruise” is currently slated to go into production in May.

The film marks Blunt’s third collaboration with Disney, having previously worked on the musical “Into the Woods” and the upcoming “Mary Poppins Returns,” where she will star as the title character opposite Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Blunt can be seen next in Paramount’s supernatural horror film “A Quiet Place” opposite husband John Krasinski, who is also directing. She is repped by CAA and Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern.

Edgar Ramirez Joins Dwayne Johnson in 'Jungle Cruise' (Exclusive)
APRIL 18, 2018 11:24am PT by Borys Kit, Mia Galuppo


Emily Blunt will also star in the feature from 'The Shallows' director Jaume Collet-Serra.

Edgar Ramirez, who starred as Gianni Versace in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, is setting sail on the Jungle Cruise.

Dwayne Johnson will star in Disney's feature adaptation of its own theme park ride, along with a crew that is currently made up of Emily Blunt and comedian Jack Whitehall.

Jaume Collet-Serra, the filmmaker behind The Shallows and Liam Neeson films such as The Commuter and Non-Stop, will helm the project which is set in the early 20th century and will take place in the Amazon jungle.

Johnson is a boat captain who takes a sister (Blunt) and her brother (Jack Whitehall) on a mission to find a tree believed to posses healing powers. Wild animals and a competing German expedition figure into the proceedings.

Ramirez will play a man with a conquistador background who is one of the story's villains.

Beau Flynn, John Davis and John Fox are producing as are Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia. Scott Sheldon is co-producing.

The movie is heading toward a May start and will shoot through the summer. Michael Green, who penned Logan and Murder on the Orient Express, wrote the most recent draft of the script.

Ramirez previously worked with Blunt in The Girl on the Train. The actor appeared in such recent high-profile projects as Netflix's first blockbuster Bright with Will Smith, Gold with Matthew McConaughey, and boxing drama Hands of Stone with Robert De Niro.

He is repped by CAA, Impression Entertainment and Hirsch Wallerstein.

The movie has a lot to live up to for me. The ride is fantastic so I wonder how they try to capture the magic here. We also just received the DisneyParks book about the ride and it's a trip. Love it. Kids love it. But yeah--the film, it's gonna be fun to follow this.
