6 December 2016 8:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nick Harley Dec 7, 2016

Tim Matheson joins Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Jack Black in the new Jumanji movie...

Jumanji is adding another player to its game, as Deadline has reported that Tim Matheson has joined the cast of Sony’s sequel/reboot.

The Leave It To Beaver, Animal House, Johnny Quest, The West Wing and most recently, Killing Reagan star will be playing Old Man Vreeke (perhaps a villainous role akin to the part Johnathan Hyde played in the original?) in the new film alongside Dwayne Johnson.

Director Jake Kasdan (Orange County, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) has revealed that the new Jumanji will continue the events from the first film and will pay tribute to Robin Williams’ character. The original Jumanji was an adaptation of the 1981 children's book of the same name by Chris Van Allsburg.

Jumanji 2 Fight Photos Revealed by Dwayne Johnson

4 December 2016 12:47 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since production has started on the Jumanji remake, star Dwayne Johnson has been sharing numerous photos from the set. Today the actor shared even more photos featuring a big fight scene as filming continues. We don't have a whole lot of context for this scene, but the actor had this to sy on Instagram earlier today.

"This bad man is an asshole and I must throw him thru this cement pillar. My hand strength is like vice grips... he has no choice. For the record, this man is roughly 6'8 and well over 350lbs - he's massive and mean - I must run away now to preserve my health. #OnSet #MySaturdayNights #KnuckleUp" #StuntBrotherLuv #Jumanji" Doin' dirt with my stunt brothers tonight. Rehearsals before the bodies hit the floor... I'm searching for a good spot to break his leg with one shot. This scene also looks like what happens when »

Jumanji: revisiting the original film

11 October 2016 2:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Oct 13, 2016

It's being remade with Dwayne Johnson - but what's so special about the original Jumanji? We take a look back...

The 1990s saw a number of leaps forward in computer generated effects, from Terminator 2: Judgment Day at the beginning of the decade to The Matrix near the end. Hollywood blockbusters reflected the boom in visual effects accordingly and some films hold up better than others – 1995's Jumanji fits right in the middle.

In line with the special effects wizardry that had brought dinosaurs to the big screen in Jurassic Park a couple of years prior, Joe Johnston's wacky fantasy adventure unleashed a jungle on small town America with funny and scary results. With a reboot/belated sequel on the horizon, it's interesting to look back at how this one is more fondly remembered, whether as a visual effects extravaganza or as an action packed family movie. »

"Officially welcoming our #JumanjiJuniors to our film. Talented young actors @serdariusblain @madisoniseman @natandalex & @Mozefro.

22 September 2016 5:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just days after the first photos surfaced from Jumanji 2 as production begins, we have a new video from the set, courtesy of Dwayne Johnson. The actor tried to stay in character as Dr. Bravestone, revealing how he's trying to explore unseen lands, until his cameraman messed up the shot, by showcasing some of the cast and crew behind-the-scenes. This will surely be the first of many videos shared by The Rock as filming continues. Here's what the actor had to say about this video on Instagram.

"My character's one of the greatest explorers in the world and I'm deep in the jungles of #Jumanji and discovering new land.. never mind @hhgarcia41 ruined the damn shot. #OnLocation #Hawaii #Welcome2Jumanji"

The Instagram video gives us a good look at the jungle locales the production is using in Hawaii, but unfortunately, he doesn't reveal anything about the story, or his character Dr. »

21 September 2016 8:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production has begun on the star-studded Jumanji 2, with both Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart releasing the first photos through social media yesterday. The photo offered our first look at both of those stars in character as Dr. Bravestone and Moose Finbar, along with Jack Black as Professor Shelly Oberon and Karen Gillan as Ruby Roundhouse, which lead to several fans commenting on Karen Gillan's skimpy outfit, while all of her male co-stars are fully clothed. Today Karen Gillan fired back with her own message on social media.

Dwayne Johnson revealed in his Instagram post that Karen Gillan's "jungle wardrobe will make sense when you know the plot," although he wouldn't offer any plot specifics at this time. Still, the skimpy costume became quite the hot topic, which lead to Karen Gillan releasing her own brief statement on Twitter. Here's what she had to say below, which could offer »

Dwayne Johnson Confirmed To Headline Sony’s Jumanji Remake

22 April 2016 11:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In accordance with previous reports, it’s been confirmed that Dwayne Johnson has been tapped to headline Sony’s Jumanji remake. However, there’s no word of his Central Intelligence co-star Kevin Hart closing a deal at this time.

Word of Johnson’s addition to the embryonic overhaul comes via the actor’s ever-active Instagram – which also brought word of Baywatch enlisting Pamela Anderson earlier today – revealing that Johnson’s Seven Bucks production banner will help shepherd Jumanji into development, with plans in place to start shooting in fall of this year.

Expect casting to hit up over the next few months, then, with producer Matt Tolmach and director Jake Kasdan also on board to steer the project from behind the scenes. Perhaps in an effort to allay fears that a Jumanji reboot is arguably unnecessary, Johnson noted that the team “promises to deliver something cool and special.. and not »
