Dwayne Johnson Confirms ‘Jumanji’ Reboot and Promises Not to ‘Screw’ It Up
You better not, Rock, or we’ll come after you… j/k (cause you’d kick our ass).
Dwayne Johnson announced on Instagram that he is indeed working on a reboot of the 1995 action classic Jumanji, which starred the late Robin Williams and centered on a jungle board game that actually brought things to life once you started playing it.
Posting a snap of himself holding a script, Johnson wrote, “It’s OFFICIAL: Love this script!… 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… Shooting starts this fall. Promise to deliver something cool and special.. and not screw the whole damn thing up;)”
But wait, there’s more! He is also set to adapt the video game Rampage into a feature film, and he has the second season of the HBO series Ballers premiering July 17. Yeah, no down time for this guy.
The new Jumanji film is slated for a July 28, 2017, release.
