Tomlach to Produce “Jumanji” Remake

“The Amazing Spider-Man” producer Matt Tolmach is set to produce the reboot of “Jumanji” in the works at Sony Pictures says Variety.

Joe Johnston’s 1995 feature, based on Chris Van Allsburg’s book, followed two kids who play an old magic boardgame and release a man (Robin Williams) as well as many dangers that can be stopped only by finishing the game.

The new film is expected to update the premise for contemporary times (will Jumani be an MMORPG?). William Teitler, who produced the original, will also produce this.
