– “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson released the first look at Season 2 of HBO’s “Ballers” series premiering July 17 at 10:00 p.m. EST.

– The Rock officially announced that he has signed on for a “Jumanji” movie re-make: “It’s official. We’ll produce and deliver to a whole new generation a title that I love and is one of my all time favs: There’s games you play for fun… then there’s games that change your life. JUMANJI.”

Rock said his production team “Seven Bucks” is working on “edging up” the script ahead of filming this fall. The producer is Matt Tolmach and the director is Jake Kasdan.
