Never let it be said that The Rock isn't a man of his word.
Earlier this week Dwayne Johnson promised casting announcements for Jumanji were coming soon, and we didn't have to wait long. The actor once again took to his Instagram to confirm that Kevin Hart has joined the cast of the reboot along with veteran comedian Jack Black.
Check out the Great One's post below...
IT'S OFFICIAL: An ol' friend is ready to play in the world of #JUMANJI... JACK (mf'n) BLACK. Been a big fan of his work over the years. A brilliant actor who I'm confident will turn in a performance of a lifetime for JUMANJI. (when we reveal his character you'll understand;). In our reimagining of the story of JUMANJI, Jack brings that rare balance of cool with funny and edge with childlike joy. The "Jumanji Breakfast Club" is coming together.. myself, Jack (mf'n) Black and Kevin Hart. Two big roles left. One bad ass girl. One semi-sorta bad ass dude. Who will they be... this is gonna be fun. #JUMANJI #WelcomesJackBlack #JustPressStart #TheGameThatPlaysYou

While we now know that Black and Hart are signed on for Jumanji, we still don't know what roles they will be playing. Johnson isn't quite done with his casting announcements either; in the post he notes that there are "two big roles left. One bad ass girl. One semi-sorta bad ass dude". Just who are these two badass characters? With any luck, Johnson won't keep us in suspense for long...
Directed by Jake Kasdan and starring Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, and Kevin Hart, Jumanji will be released in cinemas on July 28, 2017.
