Cop a gander of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Kevin Hart!

The dynamic duo have re-teamed for the much talked about remake of Robin Williams’ classic ‘Jumanji.’ 

Set to hit theaters in 2017, while sharing the same name as the 1995 original, boasts its own original story.

While Johnson stars as Dr. Bravestone, the characters of the other names attached (such as Karen Gillian and Nick Jonas) have yet to be revealed.

What is certain is that filming is going great. Just ask Kevin Hart, who took to Instagram to celebrate the first day of shooting.

His words await below…

kevinhart4realDay 1 of shooting “Jumanji” is officially in the can. We had a amazing first day. The chemistry & energy of our cast & crew was beyond amazing!!!! This movie is going to be dope as hell….Can’t wait to get back to work tomorrow @therock@karengillanofficial & jack black!!!#Jumanji

Remakes and revivals are becoming as common as the rising of the sun.

Fingers crossed this sits in the batch of those that add to a franchise rather than detract.

For what it’s worth, Johnson and Hart did demonstrate winning chemistry in this year’s ‘Central Intelligence.’

    Ughhhh, they are about to ruin a classic. Anything that Robin Williams has been apart of, don’t touch it! The are going to spend too much time trying to be funny rather than deliver the premise.

  2. Meteorite September 20, 2016

    (smh) I take it Hollywood doesn’t have any better ideas…

  3. I can’t September 20, 2016

    Nope. The Rock and Kevin hart are gonna make a mockery of this movie. They need to stay in their not-funny-funny-movie lane where I can better ignore them.

  4. SoFresh September 20, 2016

    Rock said himself that it IS NOT a remake AT ALL. So him saying that, it’s going to be a continuation years later!!!!

  5. XYZ September 20, 2016

    Can Christopher Nolan come back and save us from the remake pandemic that’s plaguing hollywood of late. Where are the original scripts? Where’s the creativity? This is going to ruin Jumanji just like they ruined Ghostbusters. I just want Dunkurk to arrive, Mr. Nolan never disappoints.

    The same people in the same movies. Kevin Hart being the punk scared loud guy, and The Rock being the muscular goofy intense guy! Oh brother!
