Here’s something I bet you didn’t know — they’re making a Jumanji remake! No, I’m not talking about the countless board game movies in the works with plots exactly like it, I’m talking about a legit, honest to goodness, Jumanji remake.
This new Jumanji recently scored a writer — Zach Helm, a guy who specializes in twee magical tales like Will Farrell’s Stranger Than Fiction and Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium. Sounds like the right kind of guy for the job.
One person not attached to the remake? Robin Williams, so this movie has a shot at being the rare remake that’s better than the original. That’s right, Jumanji sucked. I will not stand by as the Internet tries to give it the ’90s nostalgia whitewash. I’ll stand behind everything from Twister to The Mummy, but not Jumanji. Never Jumanji.
