Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is going to star in a new video game movie. With a new superhero movie Black Adam on the way, he has hinted towards him working in another video game in a recent interview with Men’s Journal.
“I can’t tell you which game, in particular, we’re doing, but there will be an announcement this year,” Johnson said in the interview.
“We’re going to bring one of the biggest, most badass games to the screen—one that I’ve played for years. I’m really excited to bring it to fans around the world. Of course, we’re going to do right by our gamer friends—but really we’re just going to make a great movie.”
Fans were quick to pick up on the fact that Dwayne admitted to being a Madden video games fan in the same interview but that could be to throw the fans off from the real project, keeping the possibilities of his new role endless.
Another possibility is Gears of War movie. Being in development from 2016 might just be coming out of hiatus and be the movie Johnson is starring in. With the cast not public yet fans are left on hopes and speculations.
Furthermore, some reports are hinting towards the new movie being based on the Doom franchise. Because, Dwayne has, in fact, already starred in a Doom movie back in 2005 but it didn’t work as the film was a flop. So now, perhaps he is determined to try once again with better writing and visuals.
Not just this but The Rock can also be talking about a possible Fortnite movie. Since the game is a huge hit and already features many movies. So, this time it would be Fortnite itself that would come into the movies world instead of the opposite. As Dwayne Johnson already plays a character in Fortnite who is basically his own look-alike, this can hint at him being part of the potential film too.
It seems like we wouldn’t have long to wait for a confirmation of some sort. With DC’s Black Adam on its way to release later this year and a sequel to Red Notice in the works, it’s going to be a busy year for Johnson and we will see a lot of him on screens. It’s only a matter of time till we get the confirmation on what character he’s playing.
