Disney's "Jungle Cruise" is now filming. Yes, it's based on the Disney theme park attraction. Because why not -- it worked for "Pirates of the Caribbean."
Emily Blunt and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson are the two top stars, and they shared a funny play-fighting set video to show off the production:
In the movie, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra ("The Shallows"), The Rock plays boat captain Frank, who takes a sister (Emily Blunt) and brother (Jack Whitehall) on a mission to find a tree believed to possess healing powers. At the same time, the trio must fight dangerous wild animals and a competing German expedition. Edgar Ramirez and Jesse Plemons play two villains in the film, which also stars Paul Giamatti as a "crusty harbormaster."
"Jungle Cruise" actually started production back in May, and The Rock shared an Instagram video at the time, sharing his nerves about signing the biggest contract of his life:
"Jungle Cruise" is scheduled to open in theaters October 11, 2019. Emily Blunt is also "Mary Poppins," y'all, and that Disney movie opens this December 19.
