Heat Vision is reporting that Zach Helm (Stranger Than Fiction, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium) has been hired by Columbia Pictures to write the studio's Jumanji remake.

Directed by Joe Johnston, the 1995 family adventure starred Robin Williams, Bonnie Hunt, Kirsten Dunst, Bradley Pierce, Jonathan Hyde, Bebe Neuwirth, David Alan Grier and Patricia Clarkson. The film was based on the 1981 children's book by Chris Van Allsburg. In it, a magical board game causes jungle plants and creatures to invade a quiet American suburb.

Matt Tolmach and Bill Teitler are producing the reimagining of the story. Ted Field and Mike Weber are executive producing.
