90s kids will remember the pure TERROR and PERIL they experienced the first time they saw JUMANJI.
Starring the late Robin Williams, the board-game turned jungle adventure quickly became a classic after it was released in 1995.
Much like anything that was popular in the 90s, it will be getting the re-boot treatment in an attempt to retell the classic story to a modern audience.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who is seemingly in everything nowadays, will star in the remake according to posts on his social media pages.
Check out The Rock’s Instagram post below and keep your fingers crossed that this remake doesn’t totally suck:
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
