According to reports, the actor will join LaKeith Stanfield and Tiffany Haddish, with Dear White People and Bad Hair director Justin Simien helming his first big-budget studio film. Katie Dippold will pen the script, Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who also produced the live-action adaptation of Aladdin, will be producing via Rideback and Nick Reynolds will serve as executive producer.
Not a lot of information about the reboot is known, except that the film will begin shooting in Atlanta next month and that it is based on the popular Disneyland ride. This title will be the first reboot since the 2003 film starring Eddie Murphy and Marsha Thomason.
Wilson recently starred as Mobius M. Mobius in the Disney+ series Loki, which was recently renewed for a second season.
