Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong'o are in talks, or shall we say howls, to be in the Jon Favreau directed Live Action/CG hybrid movie adaptation The Jungle Book!
Lupita is up for the role of Rakcha, a mama wolf who adopts Mowgli. We hope she gets it!
ScarJo is being considered to voice the sneakiest of serpents Kaa who uses hypnotism to eat its prey! Well, Ssssssscarlett already has a a hypnotic voice, so she's such a perfect fit.
As of right now Idris Elba is voicing the ever menacing tiger (that since our childhood still haunts…or, shall we say, hunts our dreams) Shere Khan.
Uh, if no one has cast Baloo yet, might we recommend Tom Hiddleston? He's already got the song Bare Necessities down pat!
Rudyard Kipling would totally approve of this potential casting!
