    Latest BUZZ on Jungle Cruise movie!

    There's some exciting BUZZ about who Disney wants to star in their latest attempt to make a Jungle Cruise movie!

    Check it out! Sounds like some good casting to me.

    I wouldn't exactly call it good casting yet, we don't even know what the movie is about besides the fact that it is loosely based on the Jungle Cruise, which itself is loosely based on an old TV show.

    I think we should be capable of at least speculating possibilities based on the actors' previous work and reasonable expectations of the movie's tone and focus. I wasn't inscribing Oscar's for anybody, just saying they sound like a good fit for the kind of Jungle Cruise movie I'd like to see.

    Does anyone really know the actual plot of the movie or it still on guessing terms? It seems like it could be a fun kind of silly movie :P

    With that pair, it would seem they would be going for a Hope/Crosby kind of feel, which wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing...

    Back in 2007, Dick Cook said, "There will be a family involved. The skipper will play a very important role. He'll be more of an Indiana Jones kind of guy, with a little Jack Sparrow in him, who's going to be able to take this family on an adventure that they never dreamed they were going to be on when they first got on board. In true Disney fashion, it will definitely have the adventure and the intensity - but also the heart and the fun. We hope we have a good outline of where we want to go and what we want to do with it in the next year."

    Of course, Cook has since been fired and a new screenwriter has been hired. For all we know, they're starting from scratch.

    Why? ... Just.... Why?
    Words any Disney fan and especially Disney employee should live by:

    "Disneyland is a work of love. We didn't go into Disneyland just with the idea of making money."
    -Walt Disney

    "Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world."
    -Walt Disney

    "I do not like to repeat successes, I like to go on to other things."
    -Walt Disney

    "We did it, Disneyland, in the knowledge that most of the people I talked to thought it would be a financial disaster - closed and forgotten within the first year."
    -Walt Disney

    "It's kind of fun to do the impossible."
    -Walt Disney

    "I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse."
    -Walt Disney

    Eh, who knows, it really could go either way for now. It sounds like a Swiss Family Robinson remake in a way. The family will probably get stranded on an island.

    If Hanks actually agrees to do that, I'd be shocked to see the movie be anywhere near that terrible. It's been a long time since he's been in a lousy movie. He's got the clout to stick with the good stuff now, and appears to be good at telling the difference.

    The recent Disneyland promos on televisions came to mind. They can have talking animals in the jungle cruise. I hope they won't go this route.
