If you don’t know who Jesse Plemons is, you should dedicate this upcoming weekend to get acquainted with him. The dude kills it in every role he lands. Most recently he played the hilarious/creepy cop character in Game Night. He was probably the best part of the movie. He also starred in the 2016 dramedy Other People, which was one of my favorite films of the year.
And now you’ll be able to find him in the upcoming Disney film The Jungle Cruise. He’ll be playing a villain opposite of Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt.
“Jaume Collet-Serra is directing the movie based on the classic theme park attraction, which operates in several Disney Parks across the globe and takes guests on a guided tour through the rivers of the world. Michael Green (“Logan”) penned the most recent draft of the script, rewritten from screenplay by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay.
Disney plans to develop the film as a possible franchise in the vein of its billion-dollar ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ series.”
Still not sure when this film is expected to hit theaters, but we will keep you posted.
