DWAYNE JOHNSON TO TAKE 'JUNGLE CRUISE' AT DISNEY! CLIVE OWEN JOINS DANE DEHAAN IN BESSON'S SF EPIC 'VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS'! JOSH HENDERSON, MICHAEL VARTAN LEAD 'ARRANGEMENT' SERIES AT E!

  DWAYNE JOHNSON TO TAKE 
'JUNGLE CRUISE' AT DISNEY
Here's yet another family adventure for Dwayne the Rock Johnson: he will lead the cast in Disney's JUNGLE CRUISE the big screen adaptation of their theme park attraction in which the visitors travel through African rivers of the Nile and Congo, where they encounter rhinos and hippos, after which they visit a part of South America's Amazon River, where they  can see piranhas! The movie itself will be a 1950's adventure in the vein of THE AFRICAN QUEEN. Earlier this week it has been announced that Dwayne will also lend his voice in Disney's animated movie MOANA as a Hawaiian demigod and will also remake BAYWATCH in the form of a movie with Zac Effron.

 E!'S 'THE ARRANGEMENT' SHOW
  JOSH HENDERSON, CHRISTINE EVANGELISTA & MICHAEL VARTAN 
In TV news, after scoring major success with THE ROYALS, E! is preparing their second scripted series THE ARRANG- EMENT which will have Josh Henderson, Michael Vartan and Christine Evangelista in the lead roles. Described as a Cinderella story for modern times with a dramatic and complicated Hollywood twist, it follows Megan Morrison (Christine Evangelista), a beautiful young actress who auditions for the female lead in a summer blockbuster playing opposite Kyle West (Josh Henderson), the hottest actor of the moment. After an amazing audition segues into a dream-like first date, Megan’s Cinderella story takes a turn to the bizarre when she is presented with a contract that details an entire relationship with Kyle. Megan must weigh her options and the benefits and consequences to her career and her life overall… and decide whether or not she will accept “the arrangement.” Michael Vartan plays Kyle’s best friend and mentor!

 CLIVE OWEN IN BESSON'S 
'VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS' SF EPIC
Meanwhile, 'Deadline' reports that director Luc Besson has hired Clive Owen to star in his $180 million expensive sf adaptation VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS as Commander Arün Filitt. Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevigne are set to lead the cast playing Valerian and Laureline in the adaptation of the graphic novel, which centred on a pair of spatio temporal agents who help defend a utopian 28th century Earth and its neighbouring planets from bad guys, with the pair’s adventures rooted in space opera and time travel themes not so much unlike Besson's 'Fifth Element'!

    1. thanks dahlink, the meeting was lovely, but the trip was awful because when I came to the bus station it was filled with tons of asylym seekers and refugees from Syria and Iraq and it brought me to tears.... I saw a little baby girl sleeping on the dirty pavement in front of the station with her parents. Made me throw myself in front of the bus from despair. When I was travelling back this evening, half of the bus were poor Syrian and Iraqi boys just trying to flee and find asylym in Western Europe and my city is the gate to Europe. Hungary is building a wall on our border to stop them. It's pure fascism... I can't believe what I'm seeing with my own eyes.

  2. I like Clive. I've seen him in a bunch of things, like Gosford Park. I think every Britsh Actor was in that movie.

    1. we do love them British actors... I myself are not so fond of Clive, he seems to have only one expression in all of his movies.... but I love the epic genre in which he often stars.

  4. I know I remembering hearing about Pirates of the Caribbean and thinking a movie about a amusement park ride was doomed to fail.

    I was wrong

  9. So...an entire movie about a cruise through the Congo? Sounds...not all that appealing! I'm sure kids will love it, though, and what great publicity for Disney World!!!
