Awkwafina Could Potentially Star in 'Jumanji 2' Alongside Dwayne Johnson

This could be the next big move for the star.

Awkwafina is currently in talks to star in the upcoming sequel to box office hit, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. The film raked in $962 million USD-worldwide in 2018 according to Hollywood Reporter. The movie, directed by Jake Kasdan starred Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and Jack Black.

In an exclusive report, Hollywood Reporter shares that the forthcoming film will be based on the picture book by Chris Van Allsburg. Additionally, it will also feature bits derived from the 1995 movie which featured a magical board game and starred world-renowned comedian Robin Williams.

Awkwafina had an ultra-busy year, which saw her in Crazy Rich Asians, and the heavily-anticipated Ocean’s 8. Sources have shared that her role in the Jumanji sequel role will be “key” and “significant.” The plot of the movie is currently not available to the public.

Stay tuned as more news emerges.
