Check out new a new Jumanji set photo and video
As production continues on Sony Pictures‘ new Jumanji movie, the cast is back with more behind-the-scenes social media posts. In the first, Dwayne Johnson waxes on about what he and co-stars Kevin Hart and Jack Black do when the cameras aren’t rolling. In the second, Karen Gillan reveals that being an actress on the Hawaii set is really, really hard. Check out the Jumanji set photo and video below!
The new Jumanji cast also includes Nick Jonas, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Alex Wolff and Morgan Turner. As we previously reported, it would appear that the Johnson, Hart, Black and Gillan are playing the “avatars” of the kids actually playing the Jumanji game in the film.
Bad Teacher and Sex Tape helmer Jake Kasdan will direct from a screenplay by High Fidelity and Con Air scribe Scott Rosenberg with frequent Bad Robot executive producer Jeff Pinkner serving as a consultant. Matt Tolmach, William Teitler and Ted Field are producing. Mike Weber and Van Allsburg executive produce.
Jumanji is based on Chris Van Allsburg’s 1985 children’s book in which a magical board game causes jungle plants and creatures to invade a quiet American suburb. The 1995 original film was directed by Joe Johnston and starred the late Robin Williams, Bonnie Hunt, Kirsten Dunst, Bradley Pierce, Jonathan Hyde, Bebe Neuwirth, David Alan Grier and Patricia Clarkson. According to Johnson, the new film will serve as a sequel rather than a full reboot.
Jumanji hits theaters on July 28, 2017.
While on set, one of us has a knack to break out in song at any moment (Jack Black), the other angrily eats Doritos and will tell you “go f*ck yourself” if you stare too long (Kevin Hart) and the last one has convinced himself that popping his pecs triggers sexual pheromones to be released from women. And Komodo Dragons. #OnLocation #Hawaii #Jumanji #TresHombres #WeHaveIssues
