The Rock has gone from being one of the biggest names in WWE to one of the hardest working men in Hollywood, as he continues to announce new projects via social media, TheWrap lists Dwayne Johnson
's insane schedule for the upcoming years. Disclaimer
: Some of these projects are in script phase or have just been announced, so are subject to changes.
"Ballers" (Season 4)The fourth season of "Ballers" was green lit in August, with Johnson reprising his role of retired NFL player turned financial manager, Spencer Strasmore.
New Line Cinema
Last year, Legendary won the bidding for Johnson's China-set action film "Skyscraper." Rawson Marshall Thurber
is directing from his own script.
Johnson is attached to star in Disney’s live-action “Jungle Cruise,” which is based on its popular theme-park ride. “Jungle Cruise” has been docked for the last few years, as there hasn’t been much movement on the project since the “Toy Story” duo of Tom Hanks
and Tim Allen
became attached in early 2011. That iteration of “Jungle Cruise” was set in modern times, though The Rock’s version is expected to be a period picture.
New Line Cinema
"Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon"
In 2012, it was reported that Johnson would reprise his role as Hank from "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" in a third installation. He replaced Brendan Fraser
, who starred as Trevor Anderson, in the 2008 "Journey to the Center of the Earth."
"Big Trouble in Little China"
In 2015, The Rock was in negotiations
to star and produce the remake of John Carpenter
's cult classic "Big Trouble in Little China," written by "X-Men: First Class" scribes Ashley Miller and Zach Stentz.
"Rampage"Johnson will star in a film adaptation of the 1980s arcade game, "Rampage." He teased the plot as follows: "The basic storyline is three mutated gigantic monsters (Silverback, Alligator and Wolf) destroy major cities and landmarks across the US."
"The Janson Directive"This film is optioned, with Johnson set to take on the role of Navy SEAL Paul Janson. Universal foresees the project as potentially launching a franchise akin to its successful “Jason Bourne” series, also based on the late Robert Ludlum's best-selling novels.
"Alpha Squad Seven"DreamWorks won the rights to the sci-fi pic "Alpha Squad Seven" in May 2015, to which Johnson is attached to star. The film is still in script phase.
"Fighting With My Family"Johnson stars with Lena Headey, Vince Vaughn, Stephen Merchant and Nick Frost in the film about a former wrestler. It will hit theaters next year.
