Dwayne Johnson has proven he’s willing to put up with a lot over his two decades as a professional wrestler and actor, but even the always-magnanimous The Rock has his breaking point. According to a new Instagram video filmed on the set of the upcoming “Jumanji” reboot, the actor might have finally met his match in the form of literally having to carry co-star Kevin Hart on his back for several hours at a time.
The duo posted the video to Johnson’s Instagram account yesterday, showing off the seat-like harness affixed to Johnson’s waist and a visually frustrated, ensconced Hart. Neither was pleased with the situation, which both claimed was a multi-hour affair. Luckily, their love of comedy triumphed and the two have endured.
In a scene for #Jumanji where I have to carry @kevinhart4real on my back while running thru the jungle, we are – unfortunately – harnessed together for hours while the entire crew looks up and enjoys our pain. In the movie this scene will be crazy funny. In real life this is bullshit, but we commit to the comedy. ?? #OnLocation #Jumanji #Hawaii #KevinsMooseKnuckle #DJsNightmare
Johnson and Hart are currently filming “Jumanji” in the jungles of Hawaii, which has proven to be its own set of challenges. The two have become something of a regular comedic duo recently, both having headlined this year’s anti-bullying action-comedy “Central Intelligence.” “Jumanji” is the second movie in which both share a starring, comedic role.
“Jumanji” is a sequel to the 1995 film by the same name, starring Robin Williams, in which a mystical board game releases jungle horrors into the world when played. The movie was based on a children’s book, also by the same name, written by Chris Van Allsburg.
“Jumanji” is directed by Jake Kasdan and stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Jack Black. The film premieres in theaters July 28, 2017.
