Alejandro González Iñárritu is in early talks to direct Warner Bros' new version of The Jungle Book. Callie Kloves will be writing the script.
The story centers on an Indian boy named Mowgli, who was raised by wolves and lived among the animals in the jungle. It first appeared in magazines in 1893-94 and was written by Rudyard Kipling. Walt Disney made an animated film centering on the boy in 1967 and a live-action film in 1994. They are currently working on another unknown reboot with Jon Favreau directing and Justin Marks providing the screenplay.
No production schedule has been released.
