Another animated movie favorite from Disney will be receiving the live-action film treatment.
 
According to Digital Spy, Disney is working on a new adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book." The collection of short stories, published in 1894, tells the adventures of Mowgli, a young boy living in India. 
 
The studio released an animated version of the book in 1967. It was the last film Walt Disney produced. He died during its production. 
 
The project is said to be in the beginning stages of production and the studio is currently looking for a director. 
 
The film will join recent live adaptations of other Disney favorites including "Alice in Wonderland" and "Cinderella," which is being prepped to be shot in the fall.
