We’re getting another Jumanji sequel. Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle did so well in the box office that Sony Pictures has already started developing the next installment. The comedy—which stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, and Nick Jonas—was given a $100 million budget, but grossed $857 million across the world.
Sony Pictures has selected Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner to write the second installment, where fans will see Johnson, Hart, Black, Gillan, and the rest of the cast reunite. Matt Tolmach will produce the sequel, alongside Johnson’s production company, Seven Bucks Production, which includes Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia. The film’s release date has yet to be announced.
Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle has been a knockout for Sony, and has become the studio’s highest-earning hit film in a while. At the beginning of the year, Jumanji snagged the No. 1 spot from Star Wars: The Last Jedi during New Year’s weekend, earning $35 million across the U.S.
According to The Rock, Jumanji hit No. 1 again over the Super Bowl weekend. “The last movie to open in December and still be #1 in February was TITANIC 20yrs ago,” he wrote on Twitter, and thanked all his fans.
