Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson clearly knows a good reboot when he sees one. Just days after word of a potential Jumanji remake starring Johnson and Kevin Hart started tickling everyone's fancy, the possible presidential candidate confirmed the project and announced that Jake Kasdan (Sex Tape, Orange County) had already agreed to handle directing duties.
"It's official," the prolific 'grammer of very necessary information revealed on Friday. "We'll produce and deliver to a whole new generation a title that I love and is one of my all time favs." Johnson says he's currently working on "edging up" an "already good" script with the rest of his Seven Bucks Productions team, the same team that brought us HBO's Ballers.
Hart and Johnson, however, have not been confirmed as starring in the reboot (yet). Don't worry though. Dude totally promised not to fumble this update of the 1995 classic starring the late Robin Williams, so we can hold him to that:
Johnson is already hard at work waving the hype flag for a very promising (and very R-rated) Baywatch reboot, a reboot that will now include the fan-approved presence of original series star Pamela Anderson. "A pleasure to welcome (as gorgeous as ever) Pamela Anderson to our Baywatch cast," Johnson 'grammed just hours before dropping the massive Jumanji news. "We couldn't have made this movie without you." Have we mentioned how much news gets broken via The Rock's Instagram yet? Seriously! The key to everything you could possibly ever need to know can, in some capacity, probably be found on this guy's Instagram.
We know you're busy with Jumanji and Baywatch (and adapting Rampage into a movie), Rock, but can we possibly get an R-rated Home Improvement reboot starring yourself and Kevin Hart? I'm not asking for a friend. I'm definitely asking for myself.
