According to news items in Hollywood Reporter, S. K. Lauren was to collaborate on the screenplay with writer Ethel Hill; however, his contribution to the final film has not been determined. Hollywood Reporter news items also note that production began in early July 1933 with Donald Cook and Helen Twelvetrees in the lead roles, however, Cook traded places with Victor Jory, who was filming My Woman (see below) at the time. Both Jory and Twelvetrees were then taken out of the cast in late July to fulfill the lead roles in My Woman (see below). Twelvetrees then returned to the lead role in Fury of the Jungle in early Sep, and the studio hoped to retain some of the original footage. Not long after, Twelvetrees again left the cast, and Peggy Shannon replaced her as "Joan," while Donald Cook replaced Victor Jory as "Lucky."
