Last year, we published a video essay on Arnold Schwarzenegger that suggested that Arnold is much an auteur as the directors he has worked with. While most people still think of movies like Terminator and True Lies as the work of James Cameron, our own Matt Singer argued  —  and rather persuasively, I might add  —  that Arnold’s status as a cinematic auteur should be just as important a factor in how we evaluate his films. No matter who is behind the camera of an Arnold movie, you know the types of characters and narratives you are going to get.

It’s hard not to get a little bit excited for the new Jumanji movie — with a cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan, they could be making a live-action movie about Thomas the Tank Engine and we’d still watch it. So while we wait for the first official trailer, Johnson and Co. have been keeping us up to date with a steady stream of behind-the-scenes photos and videos, the latest of which offers some insight into the difficulties of filming a big budget movie in Hawaii (spoiler: it’s not that difficult).

What do actors do between takes? Acting is hard work, but there’s also a whole lot of time when actors just have to sit there doing nothing while camera lenses are fixed or shots are set up or their co-stars are getting into position. After their hilarious dueling set videos during production of this summer’s Central Intelligence, it looks like Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson are back at it again during their downtime in the jungles of Hawaii while filming the Jumanji sequel.

2017’s summer movie slate includes Jumanji, which at first was announced as a remake and later revealed as a sequel, which means it should have been called 2manji, but whatever, no one listens to my amazing ideas. The cast for the legacyquel to the popular ’90s hit starring the late Robin Williams will feature Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Nick Jonas, and the latest addition to the gang, Guardian of the Galaxy’s Karen Gillan.

Up until now, the cast of Dwayne Johnson’s new Jumanji movie (which he says is a sequel, not a reboot) has been dominated entirely by men, so today’s casting update is a fairly refreshing one. If you were concerned that Jumanji might just star a bunch of dudes (charming dudes, but still), you can stop worrying because Karen Gillan is officially the first woman to join the cast.

This weekend, as he normally does, Dwayne Johnson went on Instagram to say goodbye to his most recent movie shoot and say hello to the next thing in his pipeline (seriously, the only time this guy sleeps must be when he is flying from one movie location to another). And while it’s worth noting that Johnson thanked many of the Fast 8 cast and crew excluding Vin Diesel  —  the feud lives on!  —  it was another small comment about his upcoming production of Jumanji that turned a few heads.

In one of Dwayne Johnson’s many (many, many, many) recent Instagram updates, the seemingly immortal actor promised that he’s assembling a killer lineup for the Jumanji reboot. He’s kept his word so far, as Jack Black is set to co-star in the upcoming film, which reunites Johnson with Central Intelligence pal Kevin Hart. Today brings word of yet another prospective addition in the form of a Jonas brother.

It might be getting a little more difficult for Jumanji loyalists to remain skeptical of the reboot. As if the casting of Dwayne Johnson weren’t enough for you, today brings word that Jack Black is in talks to join the cast, while it appears that Johnson’s Central Intelligence co-star Kevin Hart has officially signed on. If you aren’t even remotely enticed by the prospect of watching those three get into shenanigans with an assortment of various jungle animals, then I don’t know what could possibly make you feel joy.

Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Jumanji’ Reboot Will Honor Robin Williams in a ‘Cool Way’

You really have no idea how loved a movie is until a studio announces plans to reboot it — such is the case with Jumanji, the 1995 film starring Robin Williams, which performed pretty well at the box office but didn’t leave a big impression on critics and (adult) audiences. But reactions to Dwayne Johnson’s new Jumanji movie offer a valuable lesson in the power of nostalgia, as fans have been quick to cry foul on the reboot. Johnson has heard you, and not only is he committed to making the best reboot possible, but he’s also found a “cool” way to honor the memory of Robin Williams.
