He is one of the busiest men on planet earth and there seems to be no slowing down Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Johnson announced on his Instagram that he will star in the remake of the movie Jumanji, set to start shooting this fall.

“It’s official. We’ll produce and deliver to a whole new generation a title that I love and is one of my all time favs: There’s games you play for fun…then there’s games that change your life. JUMANJI,” Johnson said.
