Christopher Walken has signed on to star in the new Jungle Book movie re-make.
The Oscar-winning actor will play the orangutan King Louie in Disney’s live action adaptation. TheaterMania reports that the movie will be released in October 2015.
As we previously reported, Iron Man director Jon Favreau will helm this project. The cast also includes Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong’o, and Scarlett Johansson. Who would you cast as Rudyard Kipling’s orphan “man cub” character, Mowgli?
