The Rock announced a few hours ago a Jumanji remake is inbound with Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Bad Teacher and Sex Tape) directing the picture.
Here is The Rock’s announcement.
The Rock updated his Instagram today with the following. However, he brought up something we’ve all been thinking of that is the legacy of Robin Williams. Here’s what Johnson had to say:
An important thing that I want to be honest and bring up is Robin Williams. The love and respect I have for this man is boundless. 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. I also think Robin is somewhere lookin’ down and laughing, remembering the first time we met backstage and I (for the first time ever) was a star struck bumbling idiot that couldn’t even get my words out. Idiot. He literally calmed me down w/ that smile and laugh. But that’s for another fun story down the road.
