Does your movie franchise require a fresh face and additional biceps poundage? Then the man to call is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The wrestler-turned-actor got his big-screen breakthrough in the 2001 sequel The Mummy Returns and more recently has spruced up both the Fast and Furious and Journey to the Center of the Earth series.
Now Johnson has joined the Joes in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the follow-up to Paramount’s 2009 G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, which earned $300 million worldwide and received — to put matters kindly — mixed reviews. The actor’s addition to the cast isn’t the only change to the franchise: Bruce Willis joins the cast and director Jon M. Chu (Step Up 2, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never), replaces G.I. Joe helmer Stephen Sommers. Meanwhile, judging by the film’s trailer, Cobra star Channing Tatum plays a smaller part this time around.
Below, Mr. The Rock talks about G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which opens June 29, and his penchant for playing action heroes who like to crack eggs as well as skulls.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What can you tell us about G.I. Joe: Retaliation? DWAYNE JOHNSON: I can tell you this one is creatively much different [from the first]. It’s rooted, it’s grounded, it’s real. The studio came to me and I loved the idea of starring in the movie because I grew up on G.I. Joe and it’s a massive property. I spoke to the studio and they told me about the creative shift that they wanted to make with the movie, which made it easy for me to sign on.
Franchises are often “rebooted” after three or four movies. Did the studio talk about why they wanted to do so after just one?
Sure, sure. We all talked about that. The very frank discussions that I had with the studio was, ‘We know we can do better. And let’s challenge ourselves and sit down and make the movie that’s going to entertain the world.” I can appreciate that transparency and that directness. When you’re that open from the beginning, it makes things much easier and it makes the creative process that much better. (more…)
“WrestleMania 28″ set a new record for WWE, generating 1.3 million pay-per-view buys for the event, held April 1 at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium.
Company earned $67 million from the event, its largest PPV offering each year. Figure combines PPV and live-event revenue from ticket sales and merchandise. Event also set a new attendance record for the stadium, with 78,363 filled seats.
Last year’s show, hosted in Atlanta, generated revenue of $35.9 million for the company on more than 1 million PPV buys — a mark WWE had been eager to reach after years of declines. The 2010 event, from Phoenix, counted 885,000 buys.
The uptick in buys this year is being attributed to the main match-up between Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson and John Cena, which WWE promoted for a year.
“WrestleMania 28″ was available as a PPV event in more than 105 countries.
“WrestleMania 29″ is skedded to take place April 7, 2013, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
I know this is early but I wanted to stay on top of things with WWE so please take these as rumors or with a grain of salt right now but things are starting to leak out on how The Rock will still be apart of WWE up thru Wrestlemania 29. According to 411mania.com:
The Rock has signed a one-year contract, which will see him wrestle a few times this year, which does include WrestleMania 29. WWE is pushing big for next year’s event, with its sights on a Lesnar vs. Rock match. The goal is to sell out WrestleMania 29 on day one of ticket sales, which has not been done since 2007.
Collider.com posted some details about ‘Lore’ a film Dwayne was recently attached to star. I did not know much about the graphic novel myself so I decided to do a little research.
It’s been a while since we reported on the adaptation of the graphic novel, Lore, but the addition of star Dwayne Johnson makes it relevant again. The graphic novel by husband-and-wife team, T.P. Louise (author) and Ashley Wood (illustrator), follows an ancient line of protectors known as Shepherds who defend our world against dangerous mythological beasts. We previously reported that scribes Cory Goodman (Priest) and Jeremy Lott had signed on to pen the adaptation with producers looking to turn the property into a franchise similar to Men in Black. Now, it looks like Warner Bros. will be the lucky studio to try. THR reports they’ve picked up the adapted screenplay and underlying rights to the source for seven figures. Hit the jump to check out the synopsis for Lore, as well as news on another recent six-figure acquisition for Warner Bros. (more…)
Earlier I posted photos from the Pain and Gain set on 4.14.2012 but now Daily Mail has a set report of what was going down. Check it out:
Rock-headed behaviour! Dwayne Johnson steals bags on set of Pain and Gain… as Mark Wahlberg flexes his muscles
By Cassie Carpenter and Mike Larkin
It looks like The Rock was cooking up a crime on the set of his latest movie. For the wrestler-turned-actor was spotted snatching bags from an actress today for a scene from bodybuilding comedy drama Pain and Gain.
The burly 39-year-old, real name Dwayne Johnson, certainly looked the part as he ripped the carriers from the woman’s hands. The film, which also stars Ed Harris, Ken Jeong, and Tony Shalhoub, is based on real life Miami Beach bodybuilders who started a kidnapping and extortion ring in the 1990s.
The Michael Bay-helmed picture is based on a 2000 Miami New Times article about a pair of Florida steroid-abusing strongmen who become criminals involved in an extortion ring and a kidnapping plot that goes horribly wrong . Two members of the real-life Sun Gym Gang ended up receiving death sentences and currently sit on Florida’s death row. (more…)
