A reboot of the incredibly popular Jumanji is set to hit the big screen next summer, with an A-List Hollywood cast starring in the movie.
Confirmed names for the reboot include Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Karen Gillan, Jack Black and Kevin Hart who will be portraying the characters of Dr. Smolder Bravestone, Ruby Roundhouse, Professor Shelly Oberon and Moose Finbar respectively.
Also joining the cast is singer-songwriter Nick Jonas, however he wasn’t pictured in the group photo of the cast.
Day one of filming for this highly anticipated movie started earlier this week, and Dwayne Johnson was on hand to Instagram a photo of him alongside the rest of the cast.
EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: #JUMANJI Our dope 90’s vintage costumes will all make sense when our plot’s revealed. Truuuuuust me???. The journey continues.. “Moose Finbar” (Kevin Hart). “Ruby Roundhouse” (Karen Gillan). “Professor Shelly Oberon” (Jack Black). “Dr. Smolder Bravestone” ’cause well.. he smolders. Hard workin’ and FUN first day of shooting in the jungle with this talented and crazy motley crew. Jack is brilliant, Karen is bad assery, Kevin is sharply hilarious and I smell good. Extremely hard trying to keep a straight face in these scenes. Too funny. We’re makin’ a good one. More to come.. #JUMANJI #WishFulfillment #TheGameThatPlaysYou
The original movie, based on Chris Van Allsburg’s book of the same name, was released 20 years ago and the cast included Bonnie Hunt, a young Kirsten Dunst and the late Robin Williams – a movie which was deemed a ‘classic’.
Although many are wondering if this is a remake of the 1995 film, sources say this is more of a ‘continuation’ – exciting fans worldwide!
Jumanji is one of my favorite movies and for them to be doing a continuation of it with NICK AND The Rock?! I’m stoked
