    Ughhh. Why? This was one of my favorite movies growing up. Why mess with something that's perfectly fine as is.

    I know the answer to that question; Money. But still. C'mon...

    Yeah... with Goosebumps and Zathura already basically being re-makes ofJumanji, this seems somewhat redundent.

    therock It's OFFICIAL: Love this script! Big movie news that me and my canine gal Shang are excited to share To produce, create and deliver original properties to fans like HBO's #ballers to this summer's #CentralIntelligence is one of the best parts of my job.
    But to take great properties that are beloved worldwide like #BAYWATCH and #RAMPAGE and have the opportunity reimagine their stories in dope new ways to a whole new generation is truly an honor.

    It's official. We'll produce and deliver to a whole new generation a title that I love and is one of my all time favs:
    There's games you play for fun...
    then there's games that change your life.
    JUMANJI
    Working on edging up an already very good script with my @sevenbucksprod team. Up next is meeting with our producer Matt Tolmach and director Jake Kasdan. Shooting starts this fall.
    Promise to deliver something cool and special.. and not screw the whole damn thing up. As always I'll keep you posted. Casting this should be fun!
    So The Rock has confirmed he is heavily involved in this remake. I'm not sure how to feel.

    Well I was a huge fan of the original, Robin Williams was great in the movie. Hopefully the remake is done even better considering the age of great graphics we have today versus back in the day.

    Re: Jumanji Remake (2016)

    therockIT'S OFFICIAL: An ol' friend is ready to play in the world of #JUMANJI... JACK (mf'n) BLACK.

    Been a big fan of his work over the years. A brilliant actor who I'm confident will turn in a performance of a lifetime for JUMANJI. (when we reveal his character you'll understand. In our reimagining of the story of JUMANJI, Jack brings that rare balance of cool with funny and edge with childlike joy.
    The "Jumanji Breakfast Club" is coming together.. myself, Jack (mf'n) Black and Kevin Hart.

    Two big roles left. One bad ass girl. One semi-sorta bad ass dude. Who will they be... this is gonna be fun.

    #JUMANJI #WelcomesJackBlack #JustPressStart #TheGameThatPlaysYou
    So that was posted on The Rock's official twitter. Looks like Jack Black is attached to this project. The combo of The Rock and Jack black will clearly alienate some people.

    Re: Jumanji Remake (2016)

    This saddens me so much. I understand all of these movies were great movies, but the fact that Hollywood can't seem to come up with any more "original" ideas makes me cry a little bit inside.

    I'm sorry if everyone disagrees, but seeing these three in the movie kind of gets me pumped. Even Jack Black, I recently watched The Goosebumps movie, and it was actually decent. Here's a first look from TMZ.

    Here's the trailer, I have mixed feelings about it. It could be pretty funny, but I'm not totally sold on it just yet.

    Karen Gillan running around in a jungle. SOLD.

    Everything else looks fun though.

    Re: Jumanji (2017)

    Okay, first impression as I saw them transfer the board game concept to a video game was; "Ugh, gross"...

    Buuuuuut, as the trailer went on and they showed why they did that, I was kind of into it. I think if I go into this with an open mind and just accept the premise without questioning it I'm going to really, really like it.

    To question it for just a moment though, how do you get a cursed video game?

    Re: Jumanji (2017)

    Yeah the word fun is something that fits this perfectly for this trailer. It makes sense to use the Video Game aspect instead of doing the Board Game thing because it's 2017 most people don't play Board Games anymore it's more on the Console side these days. I wasn't really interested in the film the original holds alot in my heart with Robin Williams, but it raised my interest to see the film no doubt.

    Always wary at films that have famous soundtracks as their anthems. Also, how many films have "Welcome To The Jungle" in the name?

    Three, which is less than the amount that have Star Wars, Halloween, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Rocky, Jurassic Park, Terminator, Alien, etc in the title. What's your point?
