One thing he would change about the upcoming sequel? The filming location — because of Johnson’s constant pranks.
“He was pretty out of control when we were in Hawaii shooting because he knows I don’t like insects. He would plant fake spiders and snakes around me to scare me. I didn’t like that at all,” he said. “Hopefully we green screen all of Jumanji 2.”
Happy Halloween @kevinhart4real! ???? You can see the big fake furry spider ????I have in my right hand that I throw on Kevin before our take. You gotta understand that when we're asked to lay down in these jungles - when you look closely on the ground - it's literally moving with all kinds of bugs, spiders and centipedes. It's Kev's worst nightmare and some of the funniest shit I've seen when he thinks something is crawling on him. Non stop laughs with my guy on this movie. We always make it fun. ???????????? #OnSet #Jumanji #OnLocation #Hawaii #CasuallyLayingOnCentipedes

“We do great work together. That chemistry isn’t forced, it’s real,” he said. “When you have an opportunity to continue and keep it going you step up to the plate.”
