Jon Favreau Shares Photos from Disney's 'Jungle Book'

6 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in Septmeber, The Jungle Book director Jon Favreau posted a number of selfies with cast members Bill Murray and Christopher Walken on his official Facebook page. Over the past few days, the filmmaker has released even more behind-the-scenes images, featuring Scarlett Johansson voicing her role as Kaa in the recording booth, as well as Kermit Ruffins, Bill Murray, Christopher Walken and the filmmaker himself. We also get a behind-the-scenes shot of newcomer Neel Sethi on the set, portraying Mowgli.

These images come just a few days after Disney unveiled new concept art and the logo for this adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's beloved novel, which centers on Mowgli, a young boy who is raised in the woods by wolves and goes on a journey of discovery when he's forced to abandon his own home. Neel Sethi will be the only actor seen in live-action, with the rest of the characters portrayed through CGI. »

15 December 2014 10:52 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Above is the first piece of concept art Disney has released for "The Jungle Book," which looks more like the 1967 animated version of the Rudyard Kipling tale. But director Jon Favreau ("Iron Man," critics' fave "Chef") is attempting a film more along the lines of "Life of Pi" or "Avatar," a photorealistic fully immersive 3D world with lush environments and amazing animated animals. Starring 10-year-old Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito, Idris Elba, Ben Kingsley and Lupita N'yongo, Disney's "Jungle Book" remake is slated for an October 9, 2015 release.

Christopher Walken is set to voice King Louie, ruler of the jungle’s monkeys and apes, while Giancarlo Esposito is Akela, leader of the wolf pack that initially cares for Mowgli.

12 December 2014 2:11 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production has been under way since August on Disney's The Jungle Book, although we haven't heard much about the project since director Jon Favreau sent out selfies with cast members Bill Murray, Christopher Walken and Neel Sethi, who plays young Mowgli.

First Concept Art and Logo Revealed for Disney’s Live-Action Jungle Book Reboot

12 December 2014 1:33 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Yesterday we learned that Warner Bros.Jungle Book film, Andy Serkis’ motion-capture Jungle Book: Origins, was being pushed all the way to 2017.  Possibly capitalizing on that announcement, Disney has opted to reveal the first concept art and logo for its own Jungle Book adaptation, director Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book.  The film will be a blend of live-action and CG animation, with Neel Sethi filling the live-action role of Mowgli while Bill Murray voices Baloo, Idris Elba lends his pipes to Shere Khan, and Scarlett Johansson brings Kaa to life.  While Disney touts this as a live-action film, I’ll be interested to see just how many live-action environments are used, since almost all of the animals appear to be CG.  Regardless, the film puts Favreau (you know, the guy who made Elf) back in family film territory, so I’m eager to see the results.

Movement On Rival "Jungle Book" Films

12 December 2014 12:30 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Two upcoming live-action film adaptations of Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book" are in the works, and the past two days has seen some news regarding both of them.

First up there's the Warner Bros. Pictures version "Jungle Book: Origins" which mo-cap master Andy Serkis is slated to direct. Originally slated for an October 21st 2016 release, the film has now been pushed back a full year to an October 6th 2017 release. Warners has also moved the Gerard Butler-led environmental thriller "Geostorm" into that vacated 2016 slot.

That version is said to be the darker and more accurate to the book and adult-oriented version of the story. Benedict Cumberbatch, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Naomie Harris, Tom Hollander, Eddie Marsan, and Peter Mullan lend their voices to the film.

The delay means the film will also open almost two years after Disney's Jon Favreau-directed "The Jungle Book" film which opens October »

Gabrielle Union and Rosario Dawson Talk Kevin Hart, Epic Cameos, & Their 'Top Five' (Exclusive)

11 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Who do you save, Chris Rock or Kevin Hart?

In preparation for Rock's "Top Five," Mr. Moviefone (Kevin Thompson) asked Gabrielle Union the tough questions. Rock may have technically been Union's boss, but would that be enough for her to save him? After all, Union told Mr. Moviefone that Hart did give a toast at her and Dwayne Wade's wedding. (How cool is that?!).

Then, there was Rosario Dawson. The "Top Five" co-star hilariously explained her wish to do "the Christopher Walken sort of thing" and also be the next Samuel L. Jackson. Yup, she even admitted she'd love to do a speech just before a shark eats her.

"Top Five" comes to theaters this Friday, December 12. Check out the exclusive interviews below.

The Bizarre Story Of How Jeff Goldblum And Christopher Walken Did And Did Not Meet

10 December 2014 2:49 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Jeff Goldblum and Christopher Walken are both Hollywood stalwarts who have each been a mainstay of the cinematic landscape for decades. As a result, you.d simply assume they were old pals -especially since they have five shared credits. However, Walken has now revealed that he didn.t actually meet Goldblum until years after those projects. Christopher Walken made the revelation during an interview with Yahoo! Movies to promote his recent turn as Hook in Peter Pan Live! Jeff Goldblum and Christopher Walken both starred in the 1970s films Next Stop, Greenwich Village,Annie Hall, The Sentinal, as well as 2006's Man of the Year, but bizarrely they never actually came across each other on the set of these films. They didn't even have their chance for their first meeting on a red carpet or even at a press junket. It was in fact at a Los Angeles stoplight that »

9 Things That Happened in 2014 That Ruined Your Childhood

10 December 2014 9:59 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

This was not a good year to have had a childhood.

Apparently nothing is sacred anymore, because with everything that’s happened in 2014, we’ll never be able to look at our childhoods the same. Some crimes against our childhood were obviously worse than others (a bad musical vs. actual, horrible crimes), so we’ll ease into this list.

We’re sorry for everything you’re about to read. Sorry for us and for you.

Photos: Behold, here is everything ‘Frozen’ that happened in 2014!

1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: This is what happens when Michael Bay gets his hands on something you love. Because the first few Tmnt life-action movies didn’t fully tarnish our love for the half shelled heroes, this was forced on us. Terrifying CGI turtle monsters and Megan Fox as April O'Neil? Not our April O'Neil. Not ever.
