Idris Elba has just signed on to voice the tiger Shere Khan in Disney’s live action The Jungle Book.
The Jungle Book just recently entered the public domain, so Disney is in a race with Warner Brothers to make a movie adaptation quick. Disney’s will be directed by Jon Favreau and has onboard the guy who supervised the visual effects for Hugo. Warner Brothers just picked up Ron Howard to direct after Alejandro Gonzalez (Babel) dropped out.
The question on everyone’s minds, though, is clear: Is it acceptable to be sexually attracted to a tiger?
