Dwayne Johnson is about to brave the treacherous waters in a live-action “Jungle Cruise” movie.
The actor will continue to work with Disney – he’s also lending his voice to the upcoming animated movie “Moana” – on a feature film based on the theme park ride, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie will reportedly be a period piece, much like the retro vibe of the iconic Disney attraction.

In addition to his multiple Disney projects, Dwayne is shooting the action comedy “Central Intelligence,” a big screen version of “Baywatch” with Zac Efron, a movie version of the video game “Rampage,” along with the upcoming eighth “Fast & Furious” movie and the DC Comic’s movie “Shazam.”
