It's OFFICIAL: Visionary filmmaker Jaume-Collet Serra will direct our Disney's #JungleCruise.
I'm a "gut and instincts" guy and all I need is to get face to face with someone to know. After meeting with Jaume I knew he was our guy.
I feel Jaume (he last directed THE SHALLOWS) is going to bring this very cool vision and stylistic edge to our film. Heart and soul and fun romanticism for audiences around the world.
This is a massive beloved Disney property and theme park ride that I hold with boundless respect and love. Our @sevenbucksprod is grateful to have this opportunity to partner with Disney, Jaume, our producing partners Dany Garcia, Beau Flynn, John Davis and John Fox and deliver something epic and magical for the world to enjoy.
And finally, as your Jungle Cruise skipper, I'm going to need you to keep your arms, legs and head inside my boat. Trust me, you'll want to keep them inside my boat. Especially your head.
Pre production begins NOW to start shooting in the spring of 2018.
#JungleCruise The cruise of a lifetime..
