Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson posted a photo earlier today announcing that he will be starring in a remake of the 1995 film Jumanji!
“There’s games you play for fun… then there’s games that change your life. JUMANJI…Shooting starts this fall.”
The late-great Robin Williams, and Kirsten Dunst starred in Jumanji in 1995. No details have been released about what direction the remake will go in.
In the original film, Robin Williams’ character, Alan Perrish, finds the Jumanji board game and gets sucked in and trapped for many years. He is released from the board game when Kirsten Dunst finds the game and starts playing 26 years later.
It is interesting to see the new adaptation of the book and film we all loved growing up.
