Dwayne Johnson Releases Some Gritty Brawling Photos from JUMANJI
Dwayne Johnson is deep in the production of his upcoming film Jumanji, and he recently shared some new photos from the film. As you’ll see, they have a very gritty look to them, and Johnson is doing a little bit of brawling. It’s not surprising that the movie would have a very different look than the original 1995 film. About the image above, Johnson said:
"Doin' dirt with my stunt brothers tonight. Rehearsals before the bodies hit the floor... I'm searching for a good spot to break his leg with one shot. This scene also looks like what happens when too many drugs are taken at a party. Just say no."
The story is said to follow four teens in detention who get sucked into the game, where they take on new 'Avatar' forms to locate a jewel. The avatars of the kids are said to be played by Johnson, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, and Kevin Heart.
I’m actually kind of curious to see how this remake turns out. I’m a fan of Johnson’s work, and I’m really hoping he and his team give us something crazy entertaining.
The movie is being directed by Jake Kasdan (Bad Teacher, Sex Tape) from a script written by Scott Rosenberg (High Fidelity, Con Air). It also stars Nick Jonas, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Alex Wolff, and Morgan Turner.
Sony Pictures will release Jumanji in theaters on December 22, 2017.
