The movie, led by Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson, in the jungle, which spurred a few questions about Doctor Who breakout Karen Gillan‘s outfit in the movie.
Well, some of those questions should be answered by the revelations about the movie that have come to light. Younger cast members have been added to the cast – Alex Wolff, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, and the formerly announced Morgan Turner – and that the movie will focus on a video game of Jumanji that their characters are sucked into to become the avatars played by Johnson, Hart, Gillan, and Jack Black. If the Jumanji game is meant to be an amalgamation of cues from popular adventure games, Gillan looking like Lara Croft suddenly makes a little more sense, even if the good intentions still seem a bit dubious.
THR reports that Wolff’s character will be in control of Johnson’s Dr. Bravestone, but none of the other match-ups have been confirmed yet. Not for nothing does Dr. Bravestone also seem very similar to the lead hero of Uncharted, which ironically seems like it would be the perfect fit for a prime Dwayne Johnson performance.
