Dwayne Johnson brought something big to close out Sony’s CinemaCon panel Monday night: the first look at Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. The popular girl in school is horrified to learn she’s got the body of Jack Black. So yep, part of the fun of this movie is Black is playing a teenage girl and the Rock is playing a nerd.
By Borys Kit Jack Black is joining Dwayne Johnson in Sony’s remake of Jumanji, Johnson announced Wednesday on Instagram. “In our reimagining of the story of JUMANJI, Jack brings that rare balance of cool with funny and edge with childlike joy,” wrote Johnson. He also solidified Kevin Hart’s involvement, which was previously in question due to scheduling, saying that the “Jumanji Breakfast Club” is coming together.
