Ever since Disney made BILLIONS with their Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, they decided they should make a film adapted by every ride they have in their parks. Literally. I mean can you imagine a film based on the teacups? right?
Jaume Collet-Serra is directing, Oscar nominee Michael Green (Logan) wrote the most recent version of the script. But that’s all the news we’ve gotten, until now.
Variety reports that a source has confirmed to them that Emily Blunt will be joining The Rock in a staring role. No stranger to Disney at this point, Emily just finished production on the upcoming Mary Poppins sequel Mary Poppins Returns as well as the Into The Woods version produced by Disney.
Recently, Johnson and his team stated that the Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn classic, THE AFRICAN QUEEN, has served as an inspiration when looking to create the film’s adventuresome and romantic setting.
The way The Rock’s making hit after hit, I’m pretty sure this will be a huge smash.
Speaking of Disney rides, I’m still waiting for that Haunted Mansion reboot damnit! And no that Eddie Murphy film doesn’t count.
