Jumanji: New movie adds Doctor Who star Karen Gillan
During her time playing Amelia Pond on Doctor Who, Karen Gillan landed on an array of planet-sized rocks. Now, the Scottish actress is teaming up with the merely near planet-sized The Rock.
Dwayne Johnson revealed on Instagram earlier Tuesday that Gillan has joined the cast of the Jumanji sequel — or “continuation,” to use Mr The Rock’s preferred nomenclature. The actress’ costars on the film, which is also called Jumanji, are Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Nick Jonas. Gillan’s other credits include Guardians of the Galaxy, its forthcoming sequel, and director Ti West’s western In a Valley of Violence, which is released, Oct. 21.
The new Jumanji is being directed by Jake Kasdan and will be released, July 28, 2017.
