Jumanji is getting a reboot. So far, the film remake will star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson who is also serving as a co-producer, and the newly announced cast members Jack Black and Kevin Hart.
Johnson announced his fellow actors' involvement in an Instagram post on Wednesday.
"In our reimagining of the story of Jumanji, Jack brings that rare balance of cool with funny and edge with childlike joy," The Rock wrote. He added that Kevin Hart is also confirmed for the Jake Kasdan-directed film. "The 'Jumanji Breakfast Club' is coming together, myself, Jack Black and Kevin Hart."
The film is adapted from the 1981 children's book of the same name. Written by Chris Van Allsburg, it tells the story of two young siblings who find and play a jungle adventure board game that comes to life, unleashes a previous player who was trapped in the game along with wild animals, and much destruction ensues.
