While fans are still anxiously waiting for the first pairing of Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns) and blockbuster star Dwayne Johnson (Hobbs & Shaw) for the upcoming Jungle Cruise, the duo have already set their next project together with Ball and Chain, according to Deadline.

The film, which is being written by Emily Gordon (The Big Sick), is based on the four-part comic book series of the same name by Scott Lobdell and follows Edgar and Mallory Bulson, a married couple who have decided to throw in the towel. However, their lives are flipped upside down when a mysterious meteor bathes the couple in extraterrestrial energies, giving them super-powers that only work when they’re together.

The project is currently being shopped around to multiple studios in what’s being considered an increasingly heated bidding war, with sources reporting that Netflix is currently emerging as the most likely to acquire the rights to the film.

Johnson is attached to produce the film through his banner Seven Bucks with Dany and Hiram Garcia, while Kevin Misher, who worked with Johnson and Seven Bucks for Fighting With My Family, is also set to produce with Gordon and Blunt.

Blunt and Johnson’s first pairing was originally set to debut this year on July 24 in the form of Disney’s adaptation of its theme park ride Jungle Cruise, but given the current global pandemic it has been delayed back to July 2021. Jungle Cruise marked the second film for Blunt to be pushed from its original 2020 release, with A Quiet Place Part II being pushed from its original March release to its current September 4 release. The pandemic also hit Johnson by delaying production on his upcoming actioner at Netflix Red Notice, in which he stars alongside Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman 1984) and Ryan Reynolds (Free Guy).
