Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and more join Andy Serkis' Jungle Book

08.20.2014

Just yesterday the announcement came through that Benedict Cumberbatch would move from voicing a dragon to voicing a tiger in Andy Serkis' JUNGLE BOOK: ORIGINS. Now the casting floodgates have opened and pretty much the whole cast has been revealed. Most notably will be Christian Bale as Bagheera and Cate Blanchett as Kaa, the python. With that said, here's a rundown of who's playing who in BOTH Jungle Book films.

JUNGLE BOOK: ORIGINS
Directed by Andy Serkis

THE JUNGLE BOOK
Directed by Jon Favreau

I'm not sure which cast I prefer, but I'm looking forward to the darker edge that Serkis will most certainly be lending to his iteration (think the beginning of DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES). Either way, I love this head-to-head that often goes on with studios (seen more recently with OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN and WHITE HOUSE DOWN). It's not often we get two takes on a single concept and I've really learned to enjoy them. Disney's version will hit first in October of next year, while ORIGINS will follow a year later. I'll be curious to see how that fares with audiences.

JUNGLE BOOK: ORIGINS will bring the mo-cap on October 21, 2016.
