"LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Following the record-breaking success of "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," Walt Disney Pictures is giving high-priority status to another potential adventure franchise based on a Disneyland ride.
It is developing "Jungle Cruise," inspired by the ride in which parkgoers travel the jungle river guided by a riverboat skipper, encountering such wild creatures as piranhas and gorillas during their tour. The ride was one of the 22 original attractions when the park opened in 1955.
The executive producers of the CW network's superhero saga "Smallville," Al Gough and Miles Millar, are in negotiations to write the script. Plot details are being kept under lock and key, but the movie will be set in the 20th century."
No way!?!?! Another Disneyland ride movie! Can you believe this?
First it was The Country Bears movie in 2002 that took in $17 million, a pretty big bomb. But they still decided release another ride-based film, a little thing called Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, which took in over $300 million worldwide. Then later in 2003 the Haunted Mansion movie made $75.8 million, not as big as the pirates but big nonetheless. Then the second pirates movie was watched by everybody on the planet except my broke ass. And now it's the Jungle Cruise.
Can you believe this? No way! I'm excited about this. I am such a huge fan of Disneyland ...
... and I'm all for a Jungle Cruise movie and all, but what about a Space Mountain movie, huh? That's the best ride in the damn park after the mansion and the pirates, hands down. And what about my FAVORITE ride in the park ...
