The Rock is by far one of the hardest working men in Hollywood right about now. The WWE superstar already has a hit HBO show in Ballers, a new film with funny man Kevin Hart (Central Intelligence) due out this summer and the reboot of the classic TV show, Baywatch.
The Rock and his production company Seven Bucks Productions announced that they will indeed be remaking the 1995 Robin Williams classic, Jumanji. Taking to his Instagram account, The Rock shared the news with his fans.
The project already has a script and a director attached to it. Jake Kasdan (Bad Teacher, Walk Hard) has been selected to bring this film to life.
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.
