Dwayne Johnson in Pain and Gain

These days, if you’re making an action movie, it’s a simple process. Step one: try and get Dwayne Johnson. Step two: everything else.

Universal has just about accomplished that first step for the upcoming adaptation of Robert Ludlum‘s The Janson Directive. Johnson is in talks to star in and produce the film, which is based on a book by the late  Bourne series author. This, too, is a potential franchise starter, about a legendary covert agent who starts a private agency and finds himself being hunted by his own people. There’s no writer or director yet, but if Johnson is attached, that should change quickly. Read more about The Janson Directive movie here. Read More »

Rock Teases DC Comics Film

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was, many years ago, tied to a Shazam film, to play the villainous Black Adam. He’s also been connected to a big-screen adventure starring the character Lobo. Neither project went anywhere; both have seemed more or less dead in the past couple years. But during his promotion of Hercules, The Rock teased a DC Comics project, and his description sounds like it could be one of those two characters.
