A fourth film in video-game adventure franchise “Jumanji” maybe on the way as President of Production, at Seven Bucks Productions, Hiram Garcia has said that they’re “100%” planning to produce a fourth Jumanji installment in a recent interview with Comicbook.com, also revealing that project led by Dwayne Johnson is currently in the early development at Sony Pictures.
Here’s what one of Jumanji franchise’ film producer Hiram Garcia has said when asked about the fourth installment in the series:
“100% You know, we’re always having conversations, and that’s a family, that entire group if there’s ever been.
It’s hard to imagine or remember a time I’ve been on a set where it’s just a beloved group of cast and crew and actors and that’s just one of those things where we know we have a really big idea that we want to do with it. We’ve been discussing it.”
Further Garcia added: “There’s conversations have been going we’re in the process of moving that along. I can’t tell you anything, but we do have big plans for it and that’s one of our favourite projects to work on and that’s cooking away.”
With the first film in the franchise released way back in 1995, followed by spin-off ‘Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005)’, the franchise was then brought back to life in 2017’s ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ starring Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart Karen Gillan and Nick Jonas in lead roles. Followed by ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ which made its debut in December 2019.
Currently entire Jumanji franchise has a combined gross of more than $2 billion worldwide in which only $800 million came from the ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’. In next film, we’ll reportedly see Dwayne Johnson and gang making a comeback to their respective roles, with a possibility of seeing some new character too.
