Carla Gugino has been tapped for the female lead opposite Dwayne Johnson in New Line’s disaster pic “San Andreas.”
Alexandra Daddario is on board to play their daughter with Brad Peyton directing. “The Conjuring” scribes Carey Hayes and Chad Hayes wrote the most recent draft. A previous draft was written by Carlton Cuse. Jeremy Passmore and Andre Fabrizio sold the original pitch based on an original idea by Beau Flynn.
Story takes place when “the Big One” strikes California and a special ops firefighter and his ex-wife must make the treacherous journey from Los Angeles to San Francisco to rescue his daughter. Gugino will play the firefighter’s wife.
The “San Andreas” project has been in development since 2011, with Beau Flynn producing through his FlynnPictureCo. along with Village Roadshow.
The CAA- and Untitled Entertainment-repped Gugino can be seen next in Fox’s “Wayward Pines” with Matt Dillon.
