Dwayne Johnson won’t say which popular video game he plans to turn into a movie, but says an announcement is coming this year.
Start the speculation as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will soon reveal a big movie project he’s working on based on a popular video game. As a dominant force in Hollywood on both sides of the camera, Johnson has countless upcoming projects in the works, and he recently opened up on one that he’s thrilled to help bring to fruition. The actor teased directing a major video game-based movie in a new interview with plans to make an official announcement sometime in 2022.
The problem is, The Rock doesn’t say what game he plans to give the movie. He only says it’s one of the “biggest, badass games” ever made, pointing out that he’s personally a huge fan as it’s the one he’s been playing for many years. There were no other clues leaked, so that’s all we have to work with for now. The good news is that, whatever the case, The Rock and Co plans to please the gaming community while making a solid movie in the process. Per Men’s Journal, here’s what Johnson had to say about the mystery project.
“I have always been a great crazy fan. I can’t tell you what specific game we’re making, but there will be an announcement this year. We’re going to bring one of the biggest and badass games to the screen, the one I’ve played for years. I’m really excited to bring it to fans around the world. Of course, we’re going to do the right thing for our fellow gamers, but really, we’re just going to make a great movie.”
Players offered their best guesses on what The Rock might be talking about. God of the war seems to come often with fans on social media discussing current affairs, such as a popular game that has had rumors of a film adaptation for years. Many other fans are predicting that it will be armament of war, but it’s hard to say, because Dave Bautista has been trying to get this movie made for years without success. Another fan guess is that it could be fortnite based on The Rock’s recent appearance in the actual video game.
The Rock has a lot of experience with video game movies
In any case, it will be far from the first video game film with Dwayne Johnson involved. In 2005 he starred in a Loss adaptation starring Karl Urban and Rosamund Pike, but it was a box office bomb that was released to very negative reviews. That didn’t mean he was done with video game movies, as he recently starred in 2018. Carnage, a blockbuster based on the classic video game of the same name. It worked much better than Loss.
We’ll have to wait for the official announcement from The Rock to find out which video game adaptation he’ll be working on, but even without a title given yet, the news has already sparked the interest of many fans.
Hiram Garcia, producer of Red Notice, said the Dwayne Johnson film, which also stars Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds, would get a sequel if requested.
