Colin Hanks will be back in the 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle' sequel.
The 41-year-old actor will reprise his role as the adult version of Alex Vreeke, also portrayed as a teenager by Mason Guccione in the 2017 family action film. Alex becomes video game avatar Jefferson 'Seaplane' McDonough when the young gamer gets sucked into the Jumanji world.
It was also revealed that teen cast, Ser'Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Morgan Turner, Alex Wolff and Mason - who all appeared at the beginning and end of the film as children who were transformed into adult avatars - will also reprise their roles.
The 'Fargo' star explained that he's started shooting in the US and doesn't get to join the rest of the cast in the ''plush, tropical'' Hawaii.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he said: ''I got to shoot all my stuff in Atlanta. Since I was one of the characters that existed outside of the game, I don't get the plush, tropical locale.''
The original 1981 book and 1995 movie of the same name both told the story of a magical board game in which wild jungle animals came into the real world.
But the 2017 reboot updated the concept by making the game into a video game in which four teens transported into its world, where the kids changed into grown-up avatars.
The film is currently eyeing a Christmas release date later this year, with production having started in January in Atlanta and Hawaii and running through April 26.
