Idris Elba has signed on to voice the infamous killer tiger Shere Khan in Walt Disney Pictures’ upcoming live-action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s THE JUNGLE BOOK. The studio previously adapted an animated version of the tale back in 1967. Jon Favreau (IRON MAN) will direct the feature with Justin Marks (THE RAVEN) set to pen the script based on Kipling’s short story collection that was first published in the 19th Century.

The film is a mix of live-action and VFX, with Disney set to move quickly on the project as its one of two upcoming adaptations of Kipling’s classic. Warner Bros. has been developing their own live-action version of the book with HARRY POTTER scribe Steve Kloves providing the screenplay and Ron Howard signing on to direct. The original book, which was published in 1894 includes a number of other animal-themed stories, but the most popular are the classic tales of an Indian boy named Mowgli who is raised by wolves and lives among the other animals in the jungle.

THE JUNGLE BOOK is set for release on October 9, 2015. Elba most recently starred as late South African leader Nelson Mandela in MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM and appeared in both THOR and its recent sequel THOR: THE DARK WORLD as Heimdall. The actor next stars in the Cary Fukunaga-directed BEASTS OF NO NATION.

    Back in February, Ron Howard (RUSH) had signed on to direct Warner Bros.’ live-action take on Rudyard Kipling’s THE JUNGLE BOOK (taking over for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu) but apparently, motion capture actor Andy Serkis (THE LORDS OF THE RINGS, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES) has been chosen to helm the feature instead. HARRY POTTER scribe Steve Kloves provided the screenplay.

    The original book, which was published in 1894 includes a number of other animal-themed stories, but the most popular are the classic tales of an Indian boy named Mowgli who is raised by wolves and lives among the other animals in the jungle. This is one of two features based on Kipling’s THE JUNGLE BOOK with Disney setting Jon Favreau (IRON MAN) to direct their version which hits theaters on October 9, 2015. WB’s doesn’t have a release date yet.
