Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle Sequel

UPDATE: Since this story was published, The Wrap revealed that director Jake Kasdan is also in talks to get behind the camera for the sequel again. Our original story follows.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle became the surprise box office giant of 2017…and 2018. The sequel to the 1995 adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg’s children’s book has earned over $857.6 million at the global box office, making it Sony’s biggest non-Spider-Man movie, and it just took the #1 spot again this past weekend after being in theaters for a month and a half. So of course Sony Pictures is putting a sequel together.

Just last month, we heard that Sony Pictures head honcho Tom Rothman was looking at having a Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle sequel square off with Star Wars: Episode 9 in 2019, just as they did at the end of last year. Now, the studio has officially hired two writers to tackle the sequel: the same duo who wrote Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and followed it up with Sony’s comic book spin-off Venom. Read More »
