Jungle Boat Cruise movie coming

Hot on the heels of depressing failures like the Country Bear movie and (eugh) the Haunted Mansion movie, as well as the triumph that was Pirates of the Caribbean, Disney is turning yet another park-ride into a movie: this time, it's the Jungle Boat Cruise.

Mandeville's David Hoberman describes Jungle Cruise as "an adventure film with comedic elements, but its core is almost a family version of Joseph Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness,' about a group that travels upriver, in search of a significant cure." Josh Goldstein and John Norville (Tin Cup) will write the script.
