Tom Hanks and Tim Allen off on a Jungle Cruise for Disney?

03.02.2011

Well, we like them together in animated form, so it stands to reason they might work together well in real life as well.

Disney is making moves to get TOY STORY duo Tom Hanks and Tim Allen into a live-action movie together called JUNGLE CRUISE, you guessed it, based around the theme park ride. Laugh all you want, but it worked for PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, and lighting might strike twice, especially with that casting combo.

The film is being written by Robert S.H. Schulman, who has previously written SHREK and JUNGLE BOOK 2.

Hanks has LARRY CROWNE coming out with Julia Roberts soon, and according to this Deadline article, is signed up to play Mattel toy Major Matt Mason in another upcoming film. Guess I must have missed that one?

I’m all for Tom Hanks in anything not Dan Brown-related, but I’ve always been a Tim Allen fan despite all the shit he gets. What say you?

Extra Tidbit: Get Spielberg to direct it, and maybe we'll have a three-way comeback on our hands.

This could work. Tom hanks as a captain of an amazon tours boat. Tim allen as a tour guide for a group of celebrities. Add in a couple of interesting characters and this could be a decent comedy.

I have Faith!

Good! Hanks is an acting god (he can play anything), and Tim Allen's stand up shows are very funny. I think Tim just got bad live action roles after the first toy story.

This pairing gets a green box from me because of the fact how great Hanks and Allen both are. Movie could be great if in the right hands.

With the tidbit, I will always love Allen because of Toy Story, Home Improvement, and Galaxy Quest.

This has the potential to be pretty funny and clever if done right, since The Jungle Cruise has turned into a witty, poke-fun-at-myself attraction by the guides.

If they keep it in the same spirit of the way the jungle cruise is operated, it could be hilarious. Then again, we might just get CGI animals and multiple crotch shots.

Lightning Striking Twice?

Yes it worked for Pirates but it BOMBED with that shitty Haunted Mansion movie with Eddie Murphy. I can see this being bad but at the same time, it's Tom Hanks. It can't be THAT bad.
