Filming has begun on Jumanji, the next movie in the fantasy adventure series starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black.
To mark the occasion, The Rock has shared the first image from the movie, with the cast in full costume standing in the jungle. Johnson has said that the movie is more of a continuation of the story told in the original 1995 movie starring Robin Williams than a remake, and judging by the image it looks like at least part of the movie will be taking us to the other side of the mysterious board game.
The sequel to, or continuation of, the 1995 adventure film Jumanji has found its female lead.
The film, which currently stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Nick Jonas, has now added Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan, who will reportedly play a key role. More on the story below.
Back in 2012 we heard word that Sony had plans forMen In Black 4, 21 Jump Street 2, and a Jumanji remake. We’ve already seen 22 Jump Street, and, intriguingly enough, a Men in Black and Jump Streetcrossover movie appears to be actually happening.
Now the Jumanji remake, or re-imagining, is also coming together. The movie already has Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart, who are co-starring together in the upcoming comedy Central Intelligence, set for the remake. And now it’s been revealed that High Fidelity and Bernie star Jack Black has joined them on the cast.
