Toy Story stars Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are planning to step on board Disney’s Jungle Cruise, a live-action movie adaptation of the popular riverboat attraction that first debuted at Disneyland in 1955, according to a studio statement. Disney signed a script deal with Roger S.H. Schulman, who received an Oscar nomination for co-writing Shrek. David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, fresh off their Best Picture nomination for The Fighter, are producing the long-gestating film.
Allen is currently preparing to shoot an untitled sitcom pilot for ABC in April, marking his first return to TV since Home Improvement went off the air in 1999. And Hanks directs and stars in the upcoming comedic drama Larry Crowne, due in theaters this July.
