12 Oct – Although there had been no news about the fourth "Jumanji" movie since its announcement last year, producer Hiram Garcia assured that they are currently working on it.
The producer, who is the President of Production for Dwayne Johnson's co-created company Seven Bucks Productions, told Collider that there are ongoing conversations about the fourth instalment and that more will be coming out after Johnson and director Jake Kasdan wraps up the new Prime Video movie, "Red One".
"Jumanji is definitely going to happen. Obviously, Jake Kasdan is directing "Red One", so right now he's working on that. But we have a ton of Jumanji conversations. We actually have a great take on what we're going to do for the next movie," he said.
"So, I know in talking with Jake, once he comes clear of Red One, that's going to be his next priority for him and that's something we definitely want to make."
Garcia reiterated his assurance that the film will get made as soon as the timing works out between all of the cast members, which includes Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black.
"As you can imagine, Kevin [Hart] is super busy doing a million things, just like DJ is. All of the actors are super busy. So, the timing is going to work out great, but we have a really great pitch for the movie we're about to bring into the studio, probably going to get a script written soon. Sometime after Red One, Jumanji's going to be on deck once it's ready to go, and we have a really big vision for that movie."
