Karen Gillan has been cast in the lead female role in Sony’s reboot of JUMANJI, starring opposite Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart.
The actresses’ actual role is being kept under wraps at the moment, as is the exact plot of the film, but it’s expected that this reboot will pay homage to Robin Williams’ 1995 film as it’s set after the events of that film.
Johnson and Hart are set to re-kindle their chemistry from CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE earlier this year for Jake Kasdan who’s on board to direct and working from a script that Scott Rosenberg, Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers have all worked on.
Gillan, meanwhile, is reprising her role of Nebula for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2, set for next year, but also has THE LIST and THE CIRCLE to be released this year.
