    The Hollywood Reporter shared today that Disney is moving into development on a live-action adaptation of THE JUNGLE BOOK. Justin Marks has been hired on to write the script.

    Could the story of the jungle boy raised by wolves be the next huge blockbuster for Disney? The project is still very early on in development but follows in the vein of film reboots such as the popular Tim Burton adaptation of Alice in Wonderland or upcoming adaptations such as Cinderella and Maleficent which are both in progress for future release at the house of Mouse.

    The JUNGLE BOOK story is well-known (perhaps best known) for the animated adaptation of the film which is actually the last feature worked on by Walt Disney himself prior to his passing.
