No more running into the unemployment office to cash those cheques every Friday DJ.
Local Californian lad Dwayne Johnson has closed his deal to star in Disney’s “Jungle Cruise”, a major studio tentpole based on the rather, er, unique story of… well, it’s based on a prehistoric, and eternally-busy ride at Disneyland.
The ride, which sees riders trek through Africa’s Nile and Congo rivers, while on a boat floating down the Amazon has been responsible for many-a-good-time. Johnson will now help transport that feeling to moviegoers.
No director is onboard yet.
In all seriousness, Johnson’s super, super busy – he has “Rampage” and “Skyscraper” coming up, and he still has “Jumanji” to do a promo tour for – so this won’t be shooting until Spring 2018. Back off Tim Allen.
