Harrison Ford in Talks To Star in an Adaptation of Jack London's CALL OF THE WILD
Jack London's classic novel Call of the Wild is set to get another feature film adaptation and Harrison Ford is in talks to star in the 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 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.
With the release of Indian Jones 5 being delayed, Ford has got some time to kill. Call of the Wild seems like it would be a great project for him to be a part of and I hope that he ends up taking the gig.
It's good to see Ford's name attached to a film again other than Star Wars and Indiana Jones!
