There’s a rumour around that Tom joined Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson in the remake of the 1995 film Jumanji.
“In our reimagining of the story of Jumanji, Jack brings that rare balance of cool with funny and edge with childlike joy,” wrote Johnson. He also solidified Kevin Hart’s involvement, which was previously in question due to scheduling, saying that the “Jumanji Breakfast Club” is coming together.Marvel’s new Spider-Man actor, Tom Holland is also attached to star with Jake Kasdan is directing and Matt Tolmach is producing the remake of Sony’s 1995 movie starring Robin Williams. The films are an adaptation of the children’s book by Chris van Allsburg.
The book told of a boy and a girl who find a jungle-adventure board game and bring it home. When they begin to play, it magically transforms their house into a wild jungle, unleashing a lion, monkeys, a volcano and a whole mess of trouble.“In the original movie there were three big roles,” Johnson previously wrote on Instagram on May 9. “In our new story there’s now FIVE. Been so damn cool to see all my actor buddies push their projects aside so hopefully they can come play in our world.”Johnson also said the new movie will have Williams’ film very much on its mind: “You have my word, we will honor his name and the 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.”
