In an effort to make sure you don’t forget Disney is a company, they’re producing yet another live action version adaptation of a film that was an adaptation of a story. Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book (not to be traumatizingly confused with Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle) is once again primed for a live action film, one to be written Justin Marks (the same guy who wrote Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li…so yeah).
There are no details other than that since the project is still in very early stages of development. But chances are no one will see it. You can count me out unless they figure out how to re-animate Phil Harris’s corpse to play Baloo again Humanimal style.[via THR]
