The Jumanji reboot we didn’t ask for has possibly added two stars you didn’t know you wanted until it was announced. According to a report from Variety, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are in VERY early talks to join the cast of the Sony Pictures reboot.
Jumanji the reboot is being directed by Jake Kasdan. It is being described as a new take on the children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg. The original movie starring Robin Williams was also based on the children’s book. The reboot is supossed to be more of a reboot of the book rather than the movie.
The book follows a jungle themed board game that comes to life while you play it causing a lot of trouble for young kids you stumble upon it one afternoon.
Johnson and Hart have already teamed up for the upcoming New Line action-comedy Central Intelligence (opening June 17) and they also co-hosted the MTV Movie Awards earlier this month. Hart and Johnson have not been confirmed for the movie yet.
Jumanji is scheduled to open July 28, 2017.
