Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” movie has added Paul Giamatti to the adventure.
The actor joins Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, and Edgar Ramirez for the new movie based on the classic Disney attraction. In the film, a boat captain named Frank (Johnson) takes Lily Houghton (Blunt) and Whitehall’s character on a mission to find a tree believed to have healing powers. Along the way, a competing German expedition and wild animals disrupt the group’s plans. Giamatti will play a “crusty harbormaster.”
“Jungle Cruise,” directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, is expected to start shooting later this month and film through the summer.
Giamatti and Johnson previously worked together on the movie “San Andreas.” The Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner currently stars in “Billions” on Showtime.
