Development

A Jungle Cruise movie has been in the works at Disney since at least 2005. A previous attempt that was originally intended for a 2007 release would have featured Tom Hanks and Tim Allen in starring roles as a Skipper and a frustrated passenger going down river to search for a miraculous cure in a story described as a more comical take on Heart of Darkness. This version was still being tossed around as late as 2011, but ended up never materializing.[5]
