Bill Murray to voice Baloo in Jungle Book remake

 

Disney has confirmed that the character of Baloo in their upcoming remake of their animated classic Jungle Book will be voiced by none other than Bill Murray. The new film, due to open in UK cinemas in October 2015, have already confirmed several other members of a stellar cast that also includes Idriss Elba as Shere Khan, Ben Kingsley in the role of Bagheera, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa and Christopher Walken, who will provide the voice of King Louis.

Disney's new film will be directed by Jon Favreau, but it has competition; The Jungle Book is one of two new incarnations of the film in the pipeline, with Warner Bros.' Jungle Book: Origins due to be released a year later, currently slated for an October 2016 cinematic release.
