"Babel" and "Amores Perros" director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has entered discussions to helm a new live-action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic India-set 1894 short-story collection "The Jungle Book" at Warner Bros. Pictures.
The majority of the tales focus on Mowgli, a young boy raised by wolves whose friends include a bear named Baloo and a panther by the name of Bagheera. They also encounter a tiger adversary named Shere Khan.
Kipling's work is in the public domain, thus allowing multiple adaptations to be considered. Inarritu's will likely skew more adult and darker. »
