Warner Bros. Dates Andy Serkis' 'Jungle Book: Origins' for Fall 2016

August 4, 2014

Jungle Book: Origins

Briefly: In typical Hollywood fashion, there have been two adaptations of The Jungle Book brewing at Disney and Warner Bros. The former seems to be further along with a full cast, including the recent addition of Bill Murray as Baloo the bear. But now the latter has some legs, and won't have to worry about the proximity of Disney's take on the tale. While The Jungle Book arrives on October 9th, 2015, Warner Bros. has set Jungle Book: Origins, the directorial debut of motion-capture master Andy Serkis and writing debut of Callie Kloves, for release a year and one week later on October 21st, 2016. No cast has been announced, but we're interested to see how this differs from Disney's take, and if people will be interested.

    Jungle Book: Origins? Are you kidding me? I'm not against the idea of doing a prequel to The Jungle Book, but that title is terrible. I wonder if they'll remake The Jungle Book, and then follow it up with a threequel called Mowgli Rises or something.

      I agree whole heartily. The title feels very out of place.
    Pretty to hear all the voice work for this film.
