Steve Kloves To Write A New 'Jungle Book' Adaptation
There have been a few live-action adaptations of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book but the one probably most known is the one directed by Stephen Sommers of The Mummy. It had Jason Scott Lee as Mowgli, Cary Elwes as Boone, the arrogant soldier villain type dude and Lena Headey as Katherine.
Yeah, I don't remember that film either but maybe with Steve Kloves writing a new live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book, you might want to refresh your memory on the story and read the stroy or just watch the classic 1967 animated film. It's a bare neccessity. Sorry, I couldn't help myself on that one.
Anyway, Steve Kloves won't only write the film, he'll also direct, which will mark the first time he's directed a film since 1993's Flesh and Bone. That's a long gap between directing duties. Warner Bros. is developing the series which bears (sorry again) no surprise since he has been long affiliated with Warner since he wrote 7 of the 8 films in the Harry Potter franchise.
Are you excited for this news?
