Will Sony Use "Zathura" as "Jumanji 2"?

Although it’s unclear whether Sony will use it as the sequel template, the sequel to "Jumanji" has been released in Novel form. The sequel, Zathura, reveals what happened to the kids who picked up the hastily discarded jungle board game.
After a second game board pops out, one boy, Danny, immediately rolls the dice and launches himself and his older brother, Walter, on a scary star trek that includes space pirates, meteor showers and evil robots. Many booksellers have high hopes that the latest from author/illustrator Chris Van Allsburg will bring young readers, and their parents, into stores.It’s unclear whether this tale will follow Jumanji to the big screen. Although Sony now owns the Zathura film rights, the makers of the Robin Williams-starring film have a pile of scripts, close to 15, to consider for the sequel, Houghton Mifflin spokeswoman Megan Butler says.
