‘Jumanji’: Kevin Hart Posts First Look at New Movie

Kevin Hart’s latest Instagram post will have you saying, “What year is it?”

Hart posted a first look at the upcoming 2017 “Jumanji” sequel. The photo features Hart standing beside co-stars Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black.

“Day 1 of shooting ‘Jumanji’ is officially in the can,” reads the post. “We had a [sic] amazing first day. The chemistry & energy of our cast & crew was beyond amazing!!!! This movie is going to be dope as hell….Can’t wait to get back to work tomorrow … #Jumanji.”

The film, which has been described as more of a continuation than a remake, is directed by Jake Kasdan and is based on the screenplay by Zach Helm, Chris McKenna, Jeff Pinkner, Scott Rosenberg and Erik Sommers. Principal photography is currently taking place in Honolulu, Hawaii.

“We’re going to try and reimagine ‘Jumanji’ and update it for the present,” said president of Columbia Pictures Doug Belgrad in 2013.

“Jumanji” is scheduled to be released on July 28, 2017.
