The presence of Dwayne Johnson in a feature film is very often synonymous with financial success. This trend is confirmed over the years, even if it was not always the case at one time. The actor has just revealed that he will be filming in a new adaptation of a video game.
Dwayne Johnson does it again with a new adaptation of a video game
It’s been a good decade since Dwayne Johnson established himself as a leading star in the United States and on the international scene. The former wrestler has brilliantly succeeded in his conversion, becoming one of the headliners of contemporary action cinema.
However, we do not forget that the 2000s were very different for him. It was also during this period thathe turned in doom, big-screen adaptation of the legendary video game franchise. Difficult to speak of success, despite a desire to please the players (the famous scene in FPS view was designed to flirt with them). It’s no secret that game adaptations are often decried by the public, but Dwayne Johnson seems to want to confront this exercise once again.
The superstar has just revealed during an interview for Men’s Journal thathe was working on a secret project related to a known video game. The interested party is obviously careful not to reveal the title but promises us that we should have news on this subject later in the year:
We’re bringing to the screen one of the biggest, badass games I’ve played in years. I’m really excited to introduce it to fans around the world. Sure, we’re going to do the right thing for our fellow gamers, but really, we’re just going to make a great movie.
What title could it be?
Bets are now open. A title comes directly to mind: Gears of War.
The famous franchise developed on the Microsoft side ticks many boxes in the Dwayne Johnson movie. A port in the rooms has already been mentioned in the past, with no real success. But the one we nickname The Rock can, thanks to his name, raise such a project, especially if he takes the lead role. If the theory Gears of War stands so much, it’s because the reporter is pitching the actor on his dealings with Microsoft and Xbox games. It therefore seems unlikely that the game in question belongs to the Sony catalog – we could then have quoted god of war !
While waiting to learn more, we remind you that Dwayne Johnson will be visible on next July 27 in black adam, the adaptation of the DC comics.
