Jumanji Remake Hires Stranger Than Fiction Screenwriter

That Jumanji remake you're denying the existence of just got a writer. It's Zach Helm, who has experience with kidsy stuff through Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium and non-kidsy stuff with Will Ferrell's Stranger Than Fiction and a rewrite on Ben Stiller's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. So that's good. But back to the movie's existence overall: Is there a part for Robin Williams? And should there be? We haven't even processed our feelings that far.
