This seems to confirm that the movie is officially a go and now we all know that Jumanji is one of The Rock's "all time favs".
There is no word on whether or not Kevin Hart would eventually be joining the project. However, Johnson told his Instagram audience he is still excited about the upcoming Baywatch
the opportunity (to) reimagine their stories in dope new ways to a whole new generation is truly an honor.
