By Dianna Dilworth Comment

jungleBill Murray has signed on to do the voice of the bear Baloo in Disney’s upcoming remake of the The Jungle Book.

The adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic children’s book will include a mix of live action and animation. Actor Andy Serkis is directing the Warner Bros. film.

Rolling Stone has more details about the film: “Murray is taking up the post in an already-impressive cast that includes Christopher Walken as the orangutan King Louie, Scarlett Johansson as the snake Kaa, Ben Kingsley as the panther Bagheera, Lupita Nyong’o as the wolf Raksha and Idris Elba as the tiger Shere Khan.”
