Jungle Mother Figure

It’s not quite what I was hoping for (a rom-com that casts her as a beyond-stylish ingénue), but it is som’in’.

Most Beautiful Lupita Nyong’o is looking to lend her Oscar-winning pipes to Jon Favreau’s forthcoming Jungle Book adaptation, as Rakcha, the mother wolf that adopts Mowgli.

Scarlett Johansson is also fixin’ to join the movie’s voice cast – which already includes Idris Elba as Shere Khan. The Under the Skin star would play Kaa, a python that first hypnotizes her prey then eats ’em.
