The Rock Joins Jumanji Remake



Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to Instagram this morning to confirm his participation in an upcoming remake of Jumanji, promising he’d deliver something “cool and special.” The confirmation is arriving in the wake of recent reports that Sony was recruiting Johnson and Kevin Hart for its remake of the 1995 Robin Williams adventure classic, one that’d start shooting this summer before release in July 2017. Johnson’s Instagram post nails down a few of those details: the movie will start shooting this fall, and it’s being directed by Jake Kasdan. It’s still unclear whether or not Hart is going to join the cast; the actors’ busy schedules were originally cited as a major production challenge.

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. Promise to deliver something cool and special.. and not screw the whole damn thing up;). As always I'll keep you posted. Casting this should be fun! #JUMANJI #JungleLife #JustPressStart #SONYPictures
