‘Jumanji 3’ Will Have Colin Hanks Returning to Cast
Sony’s untitled third ‘Jumanji’ film will see the return of Colin Hanks. He played the grown-up version of Alex, a teen who had been stuck in the Jumanji game for decades.
Hanks currently stars in the CBS series ‘Life in Pieces,’ which is now airing its fourth season. He’s also been in several episodes of Comedy Central’s ‘Drunk History.’ His recent credits include John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein’s ‘Vacation,’ FX’s ‘Fargo,’ and Liza Johnson’s ‘Elvis & Nixon.’
Also returning to play video game avatars are Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Nick Jonas. Additionally, the group of teenagers are reprising their roles: Ser’Darius Blain, Alex Wolff, Madison Iseman, and Morgan Turner. Rhys Darby will also be coming back to portray the players’ guide.
Franchise newcomers include Awkwafina, Danny DeVito, Danny Glover and Dania Ramirez.
The premise of ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ had a more updated approach to the concept, where the classic board game became a video game. The plot of the third film is still unknown. However, with so much of the previous film’s cast returning, it seems the teenagers will be returning to play another round in the Jumanji video game world
Moreover, Jake Kasdan, who directed the feature that made $962 million worldwide, is back to helm the sequel. Also, Kasdan co-wrote the script with returning screenwriters Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg.
Further, filming is currently underway on the film.
Sony Pictures will release the film on December 13th.
