Jungle Cruise is based upon the Disney theme park attraction of the same name, and will see Johnson playing Frank, a riverboat captain who is hired to take a scientist (Emily Blunt) and her brother (Jack Whitehall) on a mission into the jungle to search for a mythical tree believed to possess magical healing powers. All the while, the company must content with dangerous wild animals, as well as a competing German expedition.
Jungle Cruise is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and features a cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Jack Whitehall, Edgar Ramirez, Jesse Plemons, Paul Giamatti, Quim Gutierrez, Veronica Falcon, Dani Rovira and Andy Nyman. It is set for release on October 11th 2019.
