Ron Howard Opens The Jungle Book

February 14, 2014


Following the departure of the briefly-attached Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu last month, Warner Bros. has found a new helmer for their upcoming The Jungle Book. The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that Rush helmer Ron Howard will direct the new adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic tome.

The original book was published in 1894 and includes, among a number of other animal-themed stories, the classic tales of an Indian boy named Mowgli who is raised by wolves and lives among the other animals in the jungle.

Warner's version of The Jungle Book will have to compete with another adaptation currently in the works. Jon Favreau is set to helm a Walt Disney Pictures take, planned for release on October 9, 2015.
