Dwayne Johnson Turning Another Disneyland Ride Into A Movie

Dwayne Johnson - aka The Rock - will try to capture the magic of Disneyland in a new film based on one of the theme park's iconic rides, Jungle Cruise.
The movie has been in pre-production since 2015, and the actor is producing the live-action feature as well as starring in it, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The latest script draft has been penned by Star Trek Beyond's JD Payne and Patrick McKay, and it's slated to begin filming next spring.
Jungle Cruise - which appears at various Disney Parks, including Disneyland and Magic Kingdom - was one of the original rides at Disneyland, and has visitors sitting on a boat under the watchful eye of a tour guide as they - you guessed it - float through some jungle scenes.
It takes you through locations such as Africa's Nile and Congo rivers, as well as South America's Amazon. We're not sure about the plot of the movie, but we're assuming it's more than just watching Dwayne have a go on the ride.
It's starting to look like Dwayne has a bit of a thing for jungles, having recently worked on the upcoming Jumanji reboot, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which is currently in production.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was initially meant to come out this summer, but the release date was pushed back to make it a "Christmas movie", and it'll now come out on December 22.
Dwayne can next be seen in the barer landscape of the Baywatch remake, set to premiere on May 22.
