Schedules are still being worked out, as both Johnson and Hart are busy with their individual projects, but sources say things are moving toward a deal.

Johnson, 43, who is currently filming the Baywatch movie, is also starring on HBO series Ballers. He’s set to reprise his role in Fast and Furious 8 this summer and film video game adaptation Rampage next.

The plan is to shoot Jumanji before the filming of Ballers season 3 starts.

Jumanji revolves around a 12-year-old boy, who becomes trapped in a board game in 1969 and is released 26 years later.

The original Jumanji movie was released back in 1995 and was directed by Captain America: The First Avenger’s Joe Johnston and starred the late Robin Williams.
