Filmmaker Jon Favreau is in talks to develop a sequel to his new Disney movie The Jungle Book. The live-action take on the classic Rudyard Kipling story opens in U.S. theatres on Friday (15Apr16), but strong reviews have already prompted Disney bosses to greenlight a follow-up, with hopes for the entire star-studded cast to return. The film features newcomer Neel Sethi as Mowgli, Bill Murray as Baloo the bear, Christopher Walken as ape leader King Louie, Ben Kingsley as panther Bagheera, Idris Elba as tiger Shere Khan, Lupita Nyong'o as Mother Wolf Raksha, and Scarlett Johansson as snake Kaa.
