Does this surprise anyone? Disney confirmed that work on the second installment of “Expedition to the Jungle” with The Rock and Emily Blunt in the lead roles will start soon. What can we expect from the sequel?
Jungle Expedition – the movie will be continued
Actor’s movie “Jungle Expedition” recently exceeded $ 100 million in revenue from the American box-off, which is a success for Disney – especially since the production debuted as a hybrid, so it also appeared on Disney + as part of Premier Access. Thus, the Mickey Mouse Empire has another franchise in its hands.
According to The Hollywood Reporter. Disney confirmed that Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt will return to the roles of Frank Wolff and Dr. Lily Houghton. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, because the duo has not only good chemistry, but also star names that attract people to the cinemas. Michael Green, writer of the original, he is also expected to write a sequel to Wolff and Houghton.
The project is also to be realized by director Jaume Collet-Serra, who he created “Jungle Expedition”, and producers will again be a large team in the form of John Davis, John Fox, Beau Flynn, Dana Garcia, Hiram Garcia and Dwayne Johnson. Scott Sheldon will executive produce.
Of course, now the standards for financial “hits” have changed a bit. Therefore, compared to some “Avengers” or “Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Jungle Expedition” is really pale. On the other hand, earning over $ 187 million globally while even not all cinemas are open it is still a good result.
Recently The Rock announced on his Instagram that he has “important news” for viewers of the original, and well, I must admit he wasn’t lying.
Release date “Jungle Expeditions 2” it is not known yet. We shoot that The Rock will take care of the film only after the premiere “Black Adam”.
