Jumanji reboot adds Jack Black and Kevin Hart to its cast

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...

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.
