Dwayne Johnson Fast Five

Yet another massive movie has joined the packed slate of Summer 2015. This one, however, isn’t a sequel or a franchise film. It isn’t even based on a prior property.

Considering what a big part of life earthquakes are in sunny Southern California, what big moneymakers disaster films can be, and how obsessed Hollywood is with 3D spectacle at the moment, I’m a little surprised San Andreas: 3D isn’t a thing that already exists. But no, New Line has just announced the new project, which as the title suggests revolves around a huge earthquake that hits the famed California fault line and causes widespread destruction in three action-packed dimensions.

Allan Loeb, whose previous works include Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and 21, has written the script, with Beau Flynn (Journey to the Center of the Earth) on board to produce. More details after the jump.
