Speaking with Comic Book, visual effects supervisor Jake Morrison described Jungle Cruise as “a new Indiana Jones film” starring Dwayne Johnson.
I mean I’ve got to say, I’m incredibly excited about the whole thing, it’s really like Dwayne is in a new Indiana Jones film. It’s Dwayne at his best, and that is a man with some severe charisma. And then we’re putting him on this huge adventure, and they’ve just literally announced the female lead in the picture is Emily Blunt. So, we’re really excited. We start principal photography … well I’ll probably blink and we’ll be doing principal photography, but we are in prep right now. And that’s going to be a very fun film.
In a recent interview with Jo Blo, Duncan Jones stated he’s interested in directing a movie based on one of 2000 AD’s properties, such as Slaine or Rouge Trooper.
I talked to Marvel about that a little bit and I was like. “Mm. This is kind of interesting.” I knew nothing about Guardians of the Galaxy and … “This is kind of interesting. Maybe I could do something with this?” But I didn’t engage, I think, passionately enough or immediately enough at the time, and I kind of had other things that I was looking at. So I didn’t go ahead with it, but I think if there was something like that, maybe.
But I kinda feel like where my heart lies, if I were gonna go in the comic book direction, it would be in the British stuff just because I am British. So 2000 AD where Judge Dredd came from, has an amazing cast of characters. And I think if I were ever gonna do a comic book character, it would probably be one of those.
Dredd was great, but there are like Slaine, and Rogue Trooper, and all of these amazing British characters that are over here, people don’t know about. So if I can find a way to get the budget to do one of those, which is difficult because they’re not known about… Those would be amazing movies, it’s just because they’re not known about. How do we make that work? But we’ll see. I would rather focus on trying to do a 2000 AD character.
