Check out new Jumanji set photos from stars Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson
As production continues on Sony Pictures‘ new Jumanji movie, the cast is back with a triple round of behind the scenes social media posts. In the first, Kevin Hart shares photographic evidence of himself towering over costar Dwayne Johnson. In the second, Johnson reveals that he gets around set a little differently from the rest of the cast. Finally, the third photo proves that three Karen Gillans are better than one as the actress poses next to her stunt doubles. Check out all three new Jumanji posts below!
The new Jumanji cast also includes Jack Black, Nick Jonas, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Alex Wolff and Morgan Turner. As we previously reported, it would appear that the Johnson, Gillan, Hart and Black are playing the “avatars” of the kids actually playing the Jumanji game in the film. Interestingly, though, Gillan refers to her character here as Martha, which is also the name the character was given when casting was first announced. Since then, however, it has been revealed that Gillan is playing an avatar named Ruby Roundhouse. Could Martha be the name of the girl playing as Ruby? It’s also worth nothing that Martha Shepherd was the name of th e children’s mother in the first Jumanji.
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 the big screen July 28, 2017.
