Fantastic News For Comedian Jack Whitehall

Jack Whitehall is up for a gig starring opposite Dwayne Johnson.

Fresh from hosting the Brits last month, Jack Whitehall has reportedly been cast in a role in The Jungle Cruise, opposite Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson.

Jack is set to have a starring role playing Emily Blunt’s brother, according to Variety.

The movie, set to be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, is based on the classic Disney theme park attraction, and will see travelers transported through a jungle of dangerous animals and reptiles on a small riverboat.

Disney reportedly plans to develop the film as a possible franchise, a bit like Johnny Depp’s Pirates Of The Caribbean.

New movie news is exciting for The Rock, but he’s got something even more thrilling in his future – starring on Saturday Night Takeaway alongside Declan Donnelly.

Producers of the live show are said to be eyeing up both Dwayne and Bruce Willis to appear on the grande finale, set to take place in Florida next week.
