Get out the tissues! Harrison Ford is about to adventure into the world of Jack London’s Call of the Wild.

Variety was first to report the 76-year-old ageless wonder is negotiations to star in 20th Century Fox’s CG-live action adaptation of Jack London's classic novel Call of the Wild.

Ford will play John Thornton, a 19th century prospector who befriends a 140 lb Shepherd/Saint Bernard Mix named Buck whose journey transcends from household pet to leader of the pack.

Chris Sanders (The Crowds) will direct from a script written by Michael Green (Logan). Buck, along with Wild’s other animals will receive the special effects touch by Technoprops studio, a VR production company who worked on Disney's The Jungle Book and Avatar.

Production is set to begin early September with Fox confirming a release for December 25, 2019. Sounds like the kind of role that could land Ford his second ever Oscar nomination.
