Many were overjoyed last Summer when Comedian Martin Lawrence confirmed that he and longtime actor friend, Will Smith, would be teaming up to make a third installment to their widely-praised “Bad Boys 2″ film.

However, Sony just officially released their movie lineup until 2019, and it seems the two comedians have already signed on to make “Bad Boys 3″ and “Bad Boys 4″, along with a remake of the 90s film “Jumanji”.

Yup, Sony is officially remaking “Jumanji” — and it’s your 2016 Christmas present. If you’re of the anti-remake mindset, that news may make you as angry as a troop of monkeys destroying a kitchen. But then again, it’s hard to deny that the 1995 fantasy movie could benefit from some better CGI in the remake.

On Wednesday, Sony Pictures released its film slate through 2019 with release dates for 16 new films, including the new “Jumanji,” “Bad Boys 3″ and “4,” and a new date for Paul Feig’s “Ghostbusters.”

News of a “Jumanji” remake first broke in 2012 when Sony announced plans to update the Robin Williams fantasy film for the present. Now you can expect to see a modern revamp of the movie on Christmas Day in 2016 — here’s to hoping they release an updated version of the board game as well.
