Rhymer to rewrite ‘Jumanji II’

'Loud and Clear' scribe expected to significantly rework storyline

In a deal approaching seven figures, “Big Momma’s House” scribe Don Rhymer has inked a deal to rewrite “Jumanji II” for Columbia Pictures.

The first installment of the effects-heavy Robin Williams starrer proved itself a $100 million domestic grosser for the studio, leading to a long-in-development sequel. The project has been worked on by scribes that included Chris Van Allsburg, Adam Rifkin, Jonathan Hensligh, Steve Odekerk and David Ward.

Rhymer, who also penned “Loud and Clear” set up at DreamWorks, is expected to significantly rework the storyline. According to an insider, the most current version picks up with the dreaded game being fished out of the ocean by the vice president, with chaos ensuing.

Rhymer was repped by the Gersh Agency.
