According to a new casting call, the new Jumanji film, which has been filming in Hawaii, will soon move to Atlanta, GA and they looking for extras.
Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Nick Jonas all star in the reboot of the 1995 family classic that starred Robin Williams.
The idea of a remake might make fans of the original movie a bit skeptical but, the movie’s cast is aware of the first film’s popularity and doesn’t plan on messing with it.
“We’re doing a remake of a movie that has no weak points,” Hart has said. “Jumanji was an amazing film — rest in peace to Robin Williams. So we’re not trying to recreate the movie that people may be familiar with, we’re trying to modernize it, for those people who don’t know what Jumanji is, in a clever, unique way. Not destroy the movie, of course, but pay homage to all parties that were involved in it and just make it special for this generation.”
The movie has been working under the name Jaguar, so be on the lookout for those signs around Atlanta from 11/29 – 12/2, when the movie is expected to be in town.
