The news was broken by The Hollywood Reporter, which claimed that the Oscar nominee and many-times Golden Globe winner has closed the deal for this adventure movie.
The movie will also star Jesse Plemons, Edgar Ramirez, and Jack Whitehall in pivotal roles, apart from Johnson and Blunt.
The film, which is expected to go on floors later this month, is going to be helmed by the filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra of 'The Shallows' fame.
The film is going to be set in an Amazonian backdrop where the characters will be on a quest for the tree, believed to possess healing powers. (ANI)
