The film is being directed by Jake Kasdan. The two actors join previously announced cast members Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Ser’Darius Blain and Madison Iseman. Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner co-wrote the script, based on a draft by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers.

The story of the project has been shrouded in secrecy, but Johnson recently took to Instagram to reveal that this new movie will be a continuation of the franchise instead of a reboot. Not much else is known besides that, but we’ll keep you updated.
