Jun­gle fever re­turns

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

DIS­NEY is delv­ing back into the Jun­gle Book with a new live-ac­tion block­buster based on Rud­yard Ki­pling’s beloved book. The movie stu­dio tasted suc­cess with the pro­ject in the late 1960s when it was adapted into an an­i­mated hit and now ex­ec­u­tives are look­ing to up­date Ki­pling’s 1894 short story col­lec­tion, ac­cord­ing to The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter. Walt Dis­ney died dur­ing pro­duc­tion of the orig­i­nal movie (pic­tured). They’re not alone in re­vis­it­ing the author’s most fa­mous sto­ries about or­phan Mowgli. Warner Bros. bosses are also de­vel­op­ing a film based on Ki­pling’s book with Harry Pot­ter screen­writer Steve Kloves adapt­ing the ad­ven­tures.
