Zac Efron talks about The Rock

‘He’s like a real life Superman': Zac Efron gushes about ‘coolest dude’ The Rock on Late Late Show as they are set to star in Baywatch movie

He has traveled around the US promoting his upcoming flick We Are Your Friends.
But Zac Efron already can’t wait to move on to his next project with one of the biggest action men in the world. The 27-year-old gushed about his next co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson during an appearance on James Corden’s The Late Late Show on Wednesday night.

Joining in the conversation on the CBS late night chat show were Sir Ben Kingsley and funnyman Bill Hader, who also had complimentary words for the 43-year-old former professional wrestler.

The 36-year-old host James asked Zac if he was excited about working with the Fast & Furious 6 star as it was announced last week that the two hunky actors would be starring in a big screen adaptation of popular nineties series Baywatch.

Zac gushed about The Rock as he said: ‘I’m so excited, he’s like the coolest dude in the world. He’s like a real life Superman.’

Did The Rock Just Hint At Dinah Jane Hansen’s Involvement In ‘Moana?’

The Rock is totally a Harmonizer, which may give her a leg up in the search for Disney’s ‘Moana.’
Earlier this week, we reported that Disney’s upcoming animated flick “Moana” has yet to find its namesake Polynesian princess. But when MTV News spoke to the film’s directors, Rob Clements and John Musker, they assured us the announcement would be coming “relatively soon in the future,” and they also confirmed one exciting rumor: Fifth Harmony’s Dinah Jane Hansen has auditioned for the role.
While we wait on pins and needles to find out if Hansen has won the coveted role, it’s worth pointing out that she already has one major “in”: she just so happens to be tight with the film’s only star attached thus far, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson made a surprise appearance at the Pixar/Walt Disney presentation at D23 Expo on Friday, August 14th.

The actor came to speak about his upcoming film “Moana,” in which he will play legendary demi-god Maui.

“He is very strong, he’s powerful, he’s determined and relentlessly, achingly handsome. But deep down, he’s always been someone stuck in the middle. In the story, Moana might just be the person to help Maui find his true self,” said the actor.

Zac Efron in Talks to Star With Dwayne Johnson in ‘Baywatch’ Movie

‘Horrible Bosses’ director Seth Gordon will be behind the camera for all the slo-mo beach shots.

Zac Efron is suiting up in red bathing trunks and hitting the beach.

Efron is in negotiations to star opposite Dwayne Johnson in Paramount’s Baywatch, the big-screen take on the 1990s television series about California lifeguards.

After years of development, the project seems to finally be ramping up and in recent weeks it added Seth Gordon as director. Efron’s casting sets the movie up for a production start in early 2016, likely in February.

The story centers on a by-the-book and very serious lifeguard (Johnson) who is forced to team up with a young rule-flouting hothead (Efron) in order to save their beach from environmental destruction at the hands of an oil tycoon. Damian Shannon and Mark Swift wrote the most recent draft. Continue reading >

Seth Gordon to Direct Dwayne Johnson in Paramount’s ‘Baywatch’ Movie

Seth Gordon is in negotiations to direct Dwayne Johnson in Paramount’s bigscreen adaptation of the TV series “Baywatch.”

Johnson is attached to star and will produce along with his partner Dany Garcia through their Seven Bucks Productions banner along with Montecito Pictures producing along with Beau Flynn.

Michael Berk, Douglas Schwartz, Greg Bonnan will exec produce.

While plot details are currently vague, sources close to the project have said the studio wants to go the comedic route for the project.

Paramount has been trying to get the right ingredients in place in order to move forward with the film, and Gordon is the sort of director the studio has been looking to over the years. Gordon’s hit vulgar comedies like “Horrible Bosses” and “Identity Theft” have made him a popular director at the studios amid moviegoers’ craving for R-rated comedies. Paramount would hope for similar results.

Damian Shannon & Mark Swift wrote the latest draft of the script.

Gordon had been attached to Sony’s “Uncharted” but recently left the project. He is repped by WME, Brillstein Entertainment and Sloane Offer.

The Rock’s ‘Rampage’ Is Hollywood’s Answer To ‘Jurassic World’ And ‘San Andreas’

As some of you might have heard via Deadline in the midsts of all the Spider-Man news, Dwayne Johnson is re teaming with producer Beau Flynn and New Line Cinema for another action spectacular. This one is based on the popular 1980?s video game Rampage. For those of you who don’t remember, Rampage was an arcade game where you assumed the role of a giant monster and trashed one city after another. The game spawned four sequels/reboots on various home consoles between 1997 and 2006 and remains a cult favorite to this day. The appeal to Hollywood is pretty obvious. The green lighting of this film, which had been in theoretical discussions since 2011, is noteworthy in that it feels like Hollywood’s answer to two of the summer’s biggest hits thus far: Jurassic World and San Andreas. It’s basically, from a pitch standpoint, “Jurassic World meets San Andreas.” Continue reading >

Dwayne Johnson wants John Carpenter involved in Big Trouble in Little China remake

Plus: What Johnson thought of the polarizing reaction from fans

Reaction was split last week after it was announced Dwayne Johnson would star in Fox’s remake of Big Trouble in Little China, with many fans of John Carpenter’s 1986 cult classic unhappy about the idea of a new spin on the material. Not that Johnson himself expected anything less.

“I loved reading the reactions from the fans, that they were so polarized – I’m the same way,” the star told EW at Saturday night’s taping of the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards. “My response is: know that I come to the project with nothing but love and respect for the original, which is why we want to bring on John Carpenter.”
