Jake Kasdan Will Direct the Jumanji Remake

By ComingSoon

January 14, 2016

The upcoming Jumanji remake, currently planned to hit theaters December 25 of this year, has now found a director in Bad Teacher and Sex Tape helmer Jake Kasdan. Deadline has the news, reporting that Kasdan will work from a screenplay by High Fidelity and Con Air scribe Scott Rosenberg with frequent Bad Robot executive producer Jeff Pinkner serving as a consultant.

The Jumanji remake will return to the source material that inspired the 1995 film, re-adapting Chris Van Allsburg’s 1985 children’s book in which a magical board game causes jungle plants and creatures to invade a quiet American suburb. Directed by Joe Johnston, the 1995 big screen take on Jumanji stars the late Robin Williams opposite Bonnie Hunt, Kirsten Dunst, Bradley Pierce, Jonathan Hyde, Bebe Neuwirth, David Alan Grier and Patricia Clarkson.

Matt Tolmach and Bill Teitler are producing the reimagining of the story, which is set up through Columbia Pictures. Ted Field and Mike Weber are set to serve as executive producers.

Jake Kasdan has most recently been directing for the small screen, helming episodes of “The Grinder,” “Fresh Off the Boat” and “New Girl”. He also serves as executive producer on all three of those series.

The December 25, 2016 release date will have the Jumanji remake opening opposite Tim Burton’s latest, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Set up at 20th Century Fox, that film adapts the book by Ransom Riggs with a cast that includes Samuel L. Jackson, Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Kim Dickens, Rupert Everett and Judi Dench.
