Sony Pictures recently confirmed a reboot of 1995's Jumanji is in the works and scheduled for release on Christmas Day, 2016.
Although the idea of a fresh take on the film is exciting, the general reaction to the news has been less than enthused:
Despite the outcry, Sony is pretty darn set on rolling the dice again, so we put together what would be the ultimate Jumanji dream cast for the reboot.
Sam Parrish/Van Pelt played by Zachary Quinto
Thanks to American Horror Story, we know that Quinto can handle a period piece as well as villainy.
Carl Bentley played by Jordan Peele
Peele played a cop in Meet the Fockers, and he's impossible to not love onscreen.
Judy Shepherd played by Quvenzhané Wallis
America's Sweetheart '95, meet America's Sweetheart '15. Even their teeth match.
Peter Shepherd played by Hudson Yang
Yang absolutely runs Fresh Off the Boat. His mastered comedic timing and wry delivery would make for a refreshing take on Peter.
Nora Shepherd played by Amy Schumer
An acerbic aunt who simply can't with children? How is this even a question?
Sarah Whittle played by Maya Rudolph
Maya has the comedy chops of a god and comforting presence much like Bonnie Hunt. Who wouldn't invite her to their game night?
Alan Parrish played by Bill Hader
Robin Williams's shoes cannot and will not ever be filled, but Bill Hader has the dynamic skills to capture the comedy and heartbreaking tragedy in Alan Parrish's life.
