Jumanji is getting remade

You're probably aware that your childhood isn't safe when it comes to Hollywood.

We've recently witnessed remakes of The A-Team, The Karate Kid and Conan The Barbarian and since the 80s is being given a temporary reprieve, it's now time for the 90s to get pillaged.

With Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Bodyguard both in the firing line, it's just been announced that Jumanji will also be getting a modern update. The evil board game adventure with Robin Williams and a very young Kirsten Dunst will be receiving a reboot, according to a Sony executive.

"We're going to try and reimagine Jumanji and update it for the present," Doug Belgrad told The Hollywood Reporter. What this means isn't yet clear although, considering our temporary phobia of board games post-release, there's plenty of potential.

What do you think? Is it a pointless idea? While you're pondering that, is anyone up for coming over and watching our Jumanji VHS? We'll make popcorn.
