Dan Stevens Will Join Harrison Ford in The New Film Adaptation of Jack London's CALL OF THE WILD
Dan Stevens (Legion) will join Harrison Ford in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming film adaptation of Jack London's novel, Call of the Wild. There's no information on who Stevens will play, but according to Variety, it will be a significant character. Stevens is a great actor and it's great that he's going to get to work with Ford on this film.
The adventure novel was published in 1903 and the story focused on a dog named Buck, who eventually becomes prospector John Thornton’s closest ally in the wilderness as he treks across the Canadian Yukon during the Klondike Gold Rush. Ford will take on the role of Thornton, who had previously been played in films by Clark Gable and Charlton Heston.
The film is being directed by Chris Sanders (The Croods) from a script written by Michael Green (Logan). It's being developed as a CGI/live-action hybrid film and 20th Century Fox has set the released date for December 25, 2019.
The report goes on to say the film will be shot in California, both on location and on sound stages and it will use "cutting-edge digital technology that will help the filmmakers create the dog-sled racing sequences."
