Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan joins Jumanji reboot
The cast for the new Jumanji reboot just got a little weirder, but also a whole lot cooler, as Doctor Who alumnus Karen Gillan has been confirmed to join Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Nick Jonas as the first major female role announced.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I’m proud to announce a girl who’s playing the most important role in our movie – the talented, beautiful and down for a Scottish fight at any time, Ms. Karen Gillan. And yes, this is the girl who is so bad ass she shaved her freaking head for Guardians of the Galaxy“, The Rock wrote on his Facebook page yesterday (August 30).
“We start production next month in Hawaii and as many of you already know, this isn’t a remake or reboot, but a continuation of the awesome JUMANJI story we love”, the post continued.
While further details of Gillan’s role are yet to be revealed, we wouldn’t mind seeing her taking on another villainous role in the vein of her performance as Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy.
The new Jumanji is directed by Jake Kasdan (Bad Teacher, Sex Tape), and is set to hit cinemas some time next year.
