Following on from photos of the four main stars, Dwayne Johnson has posted the first shot of Nick Jonas in character on the set of the “Jumanji” reboot at Sony Pictures.
The project, which is currently shooting in Hawaii, stars Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan as the avatars of young characters playing the titular board game. Those characters are played by Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Alex Wolff and Morgan Turner. Jonas appears to also be one of the characters in the Jumanji jungle world.
Jake Kasdan directs the film from a screenplay by Scott Rosenberg. The film is a follow-up and minor reboot of the 1995 film adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg’s 1985 children’s book. The film opens July 28th next year.
Officially welcoming my guy @NickJonas to #Jumanji. Great dude, great positive energy and very talented. He's gonna kill this role like I kill things with my bare hands. The jungle awaits. The adventure continues. And ironically the one who sings the most on set is Jack Black. #OnLocation #Hawaii #WelcomeToTheFamilyNick #Jumanji
