Earlier this week we reported that there was a buzz about the possible involvement of actors Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson in the upcoming Jumanji remake. The People’s Champ just confirmed his involvement via Instagram.
“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: JUMANJI Working on edging up an already very good script”
Johnson claimed that shooting will begin this fall and gives a promise to the fans of the Robin Williams classic,
“Promise to deliver something cool and special..and not screw the whole damn thing up;)”
He really seems to be excited and impressed with the script. I have my doubts in his script opinions though. Did anyone else see The Tooth Fairy?
Along with this announcement The Rock expressed how honored he is to take on established properties and get the chance to re-imagine them. He is referring to his involvement in the big screen rendition of Baywatch and Rampage, based on the classic arcade game. Mr. Johnson is a very busy man these days.
We’ve noticed a lot of mixed feelings about the upcoming remake of Jumanji. We would love to hear more from you. And as always we will keep you up to date as we receive more information.
