Find out why Dwayne Johnson is making a Jumanji reboot on the flip…
After word got out that The Rock was up for a leading role in the movie remake with Kevin Hart, the actor confirmed his involvement and promises to follow Mamma Ru’s first commandment.
Though, Johnson, assures Jumanji is “working on edging up an already very good script with my [Seven Bucks Production] team. Up next is meeting with our producer Matt Tolmach and director Jake Kasdan. Shooting starts this fall. Promise to deliver something cool and special.. and not screw the whole damn thing up.”
Dwayne The Rock Johnson gives his stamp of approval on the Robin Williams Classic Jumanji, because for some reason we NEEDED a reboot?
“It’s OFFICIAL: Love this script! Big movie news that me and my canine gal Shang are excited to share;) To produce, create and deliver original properties to fans like HBO’s #ballers to this summer’s #CentralIntelligence is one of the best parts of my job. But to take great properties that are beloved worldwide like #BAYWATCH and #RAMPAGE and have the opportunity reimagine their stories in dope new ways to a whole new generation is truly an honor. It’s official. We’ll produce and deliver to a whole new generation a title that I love and is one of my all time favs: There’s games you play for fun… then there’s games that change your life. JUMANJI Working on edging up an already very good script with my @sevenbucksprod team. Up next is meeting with our producer Matt Tolmach and director Jake Kasdan. Shooting starts this fall.
