Sony Pictures has just announced Danny DeVito will join the cast of the sequel to the hit film, “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.” I couldn’t be more thrilled! DaVito will star beside the returning cast member Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan. Jake Kasdan is come back as the director.
“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” brought in $962 million worldwide. The movie featured four teenagers transferring into Jumanji, a world unknown. They become adults when they step into Jumanji, as a result. This movie features a video game instead of a board game, which the original movie of 1995 and book shared with us. The original starred Robin Williams in an epic role.
Unfortunately, these are all the details I have. The plot and DeVito’s character are being kept a secret, for now.
In addition, 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.” -Variety
Matt Tolmach, Johnson’s Seven Bucks, and Kasdan are producing the pic and banner. Kasdan, Scott Rosenberg, and Jeff Pinkner mastered the script.
Above all, it is amazing the success DeVito has had! He is in his fifth decade of show business! He continues to appear in the FX show “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” which began it’s 13th season this past fall. For Disney, DeVito will star in two movies, in 2019. For instance, he begins the year with Tim Burton’s live-action, “Dumbo.” DeVito plays Max Medici, the ringmaster. He will then star in “The One and Only Ivan,” also Disney’s. DeVito is repped by CAA.
I have no doubt the ‘Jumanji’ sequel will be just as amazing as the original and “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.”
