Jack Black to join Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart in Jumanji remake

05.11.2016

On Monday, Dwayne Johnson said that there would be several casting announcements for his upcoming remake of JUMANJI arriving throughout the week. Now, per The Wrap, the first one has arrived as it seems like Jack Black will be joining Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart in the upcoming film. Johnson took to Instagram to welcome Jack Black to the project:

World loves Jack Black and so do I. Been a big fan of his work over the years. A brilliant actor who I'm confident will turn in a performance of a lifetime for JUMANJI. (when we reveal his character you'll understand;). In our reimagining of the story of JUMANJI, Jack brings that rare balance of cool with funny and edge with childlike joy.

Dwayne Johnson added that there are still two big roles left to cast: "one bad ass girl. One semi-sorta bad ass dude. Who will they be... this is gonna be fun." I imagine that we'll be hearing about those in the coming days. Sony is hoping to kick off production on the Jake Kasdan (BAD TEACHER) directed film in Hawaii this August. Johnson has previously said that they want to honor the late Robin Williams and hopes that his "character of Alan Parrish will stand alone and be forever immortalized in the world of JUMANJI in an earnest and cool way. I have an idea of what to do and I think his family will be proud."

JUMANJI is set for a July 28, 2017 release.

Fine...just lose Kevin Hart

I like the Rock. He has charisma. Jack Black is just ok. Outside of Pick of Destiny and King Kong, I haven't seen anything else I thought he was decent in...maybe Goosebumps. But Kevin Hart....is absolutely, 100%, grade-A CRAP!! How this guy got popular is beyond me. He's annoying, unfunny, untalented and just plain horrible. I avoid anything he is attached to. The original Jumanji was a great concept and a fun time. It only needed Robin Williams to supply some smart (sometimes over-the-top)

I'm sure all these actors will be playing some sort of characters from each scenario, but it really doesn't need to be made into a slapstick film with sitcom humor.

The first one was kinda overrated with truly horrible CGI, so I'll stay on the fence for the moment.

Wait, I thought it was Dwayne Johnson OR Kevin Hart, not both guys. If supposedly they're both in the movie, plus Jack Black, it's beginning to sound like a Grown Ups sequel than a Jumanji reboot.

This is shaping up to be a slapsticky loud and obnoxious movie. Sounds terrible.

This is officially dead to me

This remake is slightly starting to top my most unwanted remake of all time list. It is tied up there with Ghostbusters. If they wanted to remake this, they shouldn't have this horrible cast. They aren't taking it seriously.
