Johnson is a boat captain who takes a sister (Blunt) and her brother (Jack Whitehall) on a mission to find a tree believed to posses healing powers. Wild animals and a competing German expedition figure into the proceedings.

Ramirez is playing the villain who is “a man with a conquistador background.” We only have a few details regarding this production since it is still casting and in early development. Director Jaume Collet-Serra directed the surprise hit The Shallows along with some horror movies (Orphan and House of Wax) and some mid-tier Liam Neeson movies (Non-Stop and Run All Night). Johnson is currently one of the biggest box office draws with his Jumanji reboot going on to be a huge success.

Based on Disneyland’s theme park ride where a small riverboat takes a group of travelers through a jungle filled with dangerous animals and reptiles.

Jungle Cruise, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, stars Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, and Jack Whitehall. It doesn’t currently have a release date, but if they are casting now, production should begin in late 2018, early, 2019, so perhaps a late 2019 release or an early to mid 2020 release.
