I am lion hear my roar!! And a good looking roar and role is what Hollywood’s Indris Elba will be doing in Disney’s Jungle Book. Elba is in negotiations to perform and provide the voice of the killer tiger, Shere Khan in the live action Jungle Book.

The Jungle Book is directed by Jon Favreau. The film is a mix of live action and VFX that is being overseen by Rob Legato, whose VFX credits include Avatar, The Wolf of Wall Street, Hugo and Titantic, the latter two of which won him Oscars. The studio has bolstered its creative team by setting as its production designers Alex McDowell (Man of Steel, Rise of the Guardians) and Chris Glass heading a team of concept artists that includes Michael Kutsche (Alice, Oz, Maleficent), Iain McCraig (Star Wars), and Justin Sweet (Chronicles of Narnia). The story team is headed by Iron Man’s David Lowery, who is working around the clock with seven full time illustrators, with Legacy Effects participating in creature design and rigging.

Disney is wasting no time in the movie production; as it is in a tight race with Warner Bros on a version of Rudyard Kipling’s public domain title. Jungle Book rival project is still looking for a director after Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu dropped from the project.

Elba just recently starred as the late South African leader Nelson Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom and Thor: The Dark World and next stars in the Cary Fukunaga directed Beast of No Nation. The actor and star of Luther and The Wire definitely has the massive voice for the role of Shere Khan, who in the movie stalks young Mowgli, after deciding to kill him before he becomes too much of a threat.
