Dwayne Johnson has signed on to star in the upcoming action thriller film Ciudad.
The movie concept will be based on the upcoming novel from Oni Press, which was written by the Russo Brothers and Ande Parks. According to sources, the actor will star as “a black market mercenary hired by a Brazilian drug lord to rescue his kidnapped daughter.”(DL)
Johnson’s career as a film star exploded after he joined the Fast and Furious franchise. The ex-football player turned actor has starred in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and will soon be featured in GI Joe: Retaliation. He also recently signed on to play the lead role in the upcoming movie Hercules: The Thracian Wars.
“Exploring genre has always been a driving motivation for us as filmmakers,” the Russos said in a statement. “This movie is the culmination of a long time ambition to bring our sensibilities to an action thriller.”
David Guillod and Joe Nozemack will executive produce. Steven V. Scavelli and Lisa Gitter will co-produce.
Conclusions are solid that this will be a good movie to watch, especially with all the praises that Dwayne Johnson has been receiving lately.
