Good news for you sequel/reboot fans around the world. Sony Pictures made some pretty huge announcements this week. They decided to set official theatrical release dates for the new Jumanji reboot, as well as Bad Boys 3 AND Bad Boys 4.
Jumanji will arrive inside theaters on December 25th, 2016. Details on the project are still hard to find, but we do know it will be a new take on the original film which was released back in 1995. As most of you know, Robin Williams was the star of the original film. It’s hard to imagine a Jumanji world without Williams in it, but we’ll see what the team behind this new version can do. Zach Helm (Stranger Than Fiction) is reportedly writing the script.
In addition to the exciting Jumanji news, Sony also announced the release date for Bad Boys 3. The film won’t hit theaters until February 17th, 2017. We’re still not 100% sure if Will Smith and Martin Lawrence will return for the film, but it looks like the big reunion just might happen. A year ago, Lawrence talked about the film during an appearance on Conan.
“I believe so. Yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer yesterday and he said its real, they’re working on the script, they’re getting close and it all looks good.”
Plus, Sony seems to be confident in this sequel, because they already announced the release date for Bad Boys 4. It’s scheduled for a July 3rd, 2019, release date.
We will keep you posted on both projects as we learn more information.
