Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, who will appear together in Rawson Marshall Thurber’s upcoming action comedy ‘Central Intelligence,’ are reportedly in early talks to reteam for Columbia Pictures’ reimagining of the 1995 family fantasy adventure ‘Jumanji.’
Based on Chris Van Allsburg’s illustrated short story of the same name, the Joe Johnston-directed movie starred the late, great Robin Williams, Kirsten Dunst, and David Alan Grier. The story told of two kids who let loose a man trapped decades in a magical board game. Unfortunately, the youngsters also unleash a host of dangers that can only be stopped by finishing the game.
According to the folks over at Variety, Johnson and Hart are trying to work out scheduling but hear things are looking good.
Jake Kasdan (‘Sex Tape,’ ‘Bad Teacher,’ ‘Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story’) is attached to direct, with the script coming from Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, based on a draft by the original writers, Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers.
CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE is released in Irish cinemas July 1st.
