James DeMonaco, who wrote and directed the first three installments, also scripted the next entry, which will open theatrically on July 4. Watch the first teaser video below. [Deadline]

Jungle Cruise: Emily Blunt (The Girl on the Train, above) will star in Disney's Jungle Cruise.

Production will begin in May. [Variety]
