Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to share the latest casting announcement for his "continuation" of Jumanji. Joining him, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black will be Dr. Who alum Karen Gillan!

"We had to find a girl. But not just any girl. A girl who has 'Chutzpah'. Guts, nerve and talent to stand her ground and hold her own against Nick's cool rockstar ways, Jack's relentless energy and genius, Kevin's masterful timing and skills and the big, brown, bald tattooed guy who just simply stands there and oooooozes smoldering, captivating, sizzling, can't take your eyes off this brilliant manly man," he captioned the picture of Gillan. "Never mind I got drunk on the ol' DJ kool aid again."

Johnson continued to gush about the latest star to join Jumanji, giving her major kudos for some of her other roles. "Ladies and gentlemen, I'm proud to announce a girl who's playing the most important role in our movie - the talented, beautiful and down for a Scottish fight at any time, Ms @KarenGillanOfficial," he wrote. "And yes, this is the girl who is so badass she shaved her freaking head for Guardians of the Galaxy."

The A-list cast starts filming in Hawaii next month, but The Rock has made it clear to any naysayers that this Robin Williams classic won't be a remake or a reboot; Instead, The Rock's Jumanji will be a continuation of the late comedian's work.

"As a producer on this movie and someone who loves the original, you have my word we'll honor the legend of' 'Alan Parrish' and properly introduce a whole new generation to the fun and crazy Jumanji universe that so many of us loved and grew up on," he wrote on a previous photo.
