Danny DeVito has been added to the cast of the upcoming “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” follow-up at Sony Pictures. DeVito’s casting comes in the wake of Awkwafina (“Crazy Rich Asians”) joining the cast yesterday.
In a statement, the film’s main star Dwayne Johnson says: “The magic of Jumanji is who becomes who. And the idea of Danny DeVito joining our cast was too irresistible and something we knew we wanted to deliver to our audience this upcoming Christmas. Dwanta Claus loves everyone.”
This new third “Jumanji” film is set for a December 13th 2019 release and will see the return of the main cast that includes Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black along with director Jake Kasdan.
