The actors will portray a married couple on the brink of separation who have to learn how to work together after receiving mysterious new superhero powers from a meteor, per Deadline.
Ball and Chain, which is based on Scott Lobdell and Alé Garza’s 1999 graphic novel series, will be penned by Emily V. Gordon, who was nominated for an Academy Award in 2018 for The Big Sick.
Johnson and Blunt’s Jungle Cruise was originally set to premiere in theaters over the summer, but like many films set to release this year, the movie’s release date was pushed back due to the ongoing public health situation.
When news of the postponed date was announced last month, Johnson explained that the one-year delay would give Disney – as well as fans – a chance to “bounce back to living confidently, productively and joyously once again.”
“The movie will be worth the wait,” he promised. “Stay healthy, my friends.”
In the Jungle Cruise, which is inspired by the Disneyland attraction, Blunt and Jack Whitehall play a brother and sister duo who are taken by a boat captain, Johnson’s character, through a jungle to find a tree with healing powers.
