Jon Favreau in Talks to Direct Jungle Book

Meanwhile, Sophie B. Hawkins's screenplay of the same name rots away in a cabinet somewhere.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Iron Man 2 director Favreau is currently in negotiations to direct Disney's upcoming live-action reboot of Rudyard Kipling's beloved story collection. The man made both Elf and Zathura: A Space Adventure! What's there to talk about? On an related note, if the animals still talk in Favreau's version, can John Goodman please re-up as Baloo? Hiring anyone else would just be blasphemous.
