Disney’s Jungle Cruise may still be in development but a brief synopsis has been revealed the Dwayne Johnson caper.
The adaptation which is based on the Disney theme park attraction isn’t due to go into production until later this year but already has Johnson attached, and recently revealed Emily Blunt has now signed up to star alongside Hollywood’s hardest working actor.
The synopsis reveals a slightly supernatural feel to the movie in which Johnson previously compared its tone to The African Queen. Johnson plays Frank (Francisco), a witty and immortal riverboat captain who takes Blunt’s spunky scientist down a river to find the mythical ‘Tree of Life’ following the death of her brother from a disease. Said ‘tree’ has curative powers.
