“From Awkwafina to Danny DeVito to now one of my action heroes, Danny Glover — it’s been awesome having so many actors and OG legends raise their hands wanting to come and play in our Jumanji universe. Who turns into who?’ will always be the fun magic sauce for our audience.”
Glover’s legacy credits include ‘Silverado’ and ‘The Color Purple.’ Moreover, last year he appeared in ‘The Old Man and the Gun’ with Robert Redford as well as ‘Proud Mary’ with Taraji P. Henson.
Jake Kasdan, who directed the feature that made $962 million worldwide, is back as the helmer for the sequel. Also, Kasdan co-wrote the script with returning screenwriters Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg. Sony Pictures will release the film on December 13, 2019.
