The remake of the famous science fiction movie "Jumanji" has found a new screenwriter. According to the publication Deadline, a new version of the script will be prepared by Scott Rosenberg, who has such movies as "Prison in Air", "Gone in 60 Seconds" and others.
Rosenberg also has experience working on projects with animals: he was the screenwriter and producer of the 2015 television series Zoo. Recall that the original movie, released in 1995, was based on a children's book by Chris Van Allsburg. The plot was built around a mysterious board game that turned a provincial American town into a jungle full of deadly traps and dangerous creatures.
Robin Williams, Jonathan Hyde, Kirsten Dunst, Bradley Pierce, Bonnie Hunt, Bebe Neuwert, Patricia Clarkson and other actors played the key roles in the original movie adaptation. The movie grossed more than $ 260 million worldwide. The cast of the new version has not yet been announced.
The Jumanji remake, curated by Columbia Pictures, is set to premiere on December 25, 2016. Its main competitors at the box office will be the movie adaptation of the popular game "Assassin's Creed", coming out a few days earlier, and the fantastic drama "Passengers".
