Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a legend in the blockbuster world but now he is teasing a new project based on one of the biggest video games out there.
In conversation with Men’s Journal, he remained quiet about which video game was being adapted into a movie but he did say that the title will come later this year.
“I can’t tell you which game, in particular, we’re doing, but there will be an announcement this year,” Johnson explained in the interview, going on to say that it’s a game he has 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,” he added.
Let the speculation begin
- He also name-dropped Madden, a game he is a huge fan of, but the possibility of a yearly football franchise being adapted to a movie seems slim, per Collider.
- Another possibility is Fornite, which added Johnson as a statue and playable character to the game’s Chapter 3.
- The interview touched on his relationship with Microsoft and Xbox so the company's franchises like Halo and Gears of War are also on the long list of possibilities.
For now, Johnson is vigorously training for her role as Black Adam in the upcoming DC movie, per Complex.
