Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski is set to produce a new untitled sci-fi film project that's being described as a futurist Jungle Book story.
The pitch for the film came from Dracula Year Zero screenwriters Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless and it will be acquired by Chernin Entertainment the the mid to high six figure range. Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark and John Krauss will all be producers on the film as well.
Verbinski is hard at work trying to get his Lone Ranger film in development and the screenwriters are writting the big screen adaptation of the board game Clue, which is also being developed by Verbinski.
There really isn't much more to say about this project because we basically know nothing about it other then it will be like a futuristic Jungle Book. Any thoughts?
