If you’ve watched the trailers for Disney’s Jungle Cruise, then you know what kind of chemistry is palpable between stars Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt.
The Netflix higher ups think so, too, so they’ve enlisted them to star in a project called Ball and Chain, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on the ‘90s comic of the same name by Scott Lobdell, Blunt and Johnson will play a married couple who aren’t exactly getting along but who must stay together because that’s the only way their superpowers will work. Emily V. Gordon (The Big Sick) will adapt.
Meanwhile, Jungle Cruise is set to release in July 2021 after being pushed back from its original summer 2020 release due to the pandemic. Watch the trailer below!
