If our childhoods haven’t been ruined enough lately, Jumanji is getting the remake that NO ONE wanted.
Scottish actress Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy) has been cast in a new film that supposedly follows on from the 1990’s hit.
Karen will be starring alongside Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Dwayne Johnson in the production.
I’m sure the film will be adequate (at best) and will get younger viewers hooked into the world of Jumanji enough to watch the original but.. when will it stop? Remaking classics for a quick buck, trying to reignite old hits for a new generation. What’s wrong with just keeping the old ones?! Get some original ideas, get inspiration from Indie film-makers who are constantly pushing boundaries. A dull creative-less world of corporate film-making.
Sad.. very sad.
