The Rock Signs On For Another Movie, WWE Taping Next Week’s RAW Tomorrow Night
- WWE will be taping next week’s edition of RAW tomorrow night from Austin, Texas.
- Variety.com is reporting that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has signed on to star in the big screen adaptation of the best-selling memoir “Not Without Hope.”
Based on the memoir by Nick Schuyler, the story follows four friends — Schuyler along with NFL players Marquis Cooper and Corey Smith, and Schuyler’s best friend, Will Bleakley, a former University of South Florida football player — who were on a fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico when their boat capsized, stranding the four men at sea. In the days that followed, the men fought to survive as they awaited to see if help would come. Johnson will play Schuyler in the movie.
Relativity Media recently acquired the worldwide rights to finance, produce and distribute the film. Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh will produce, with Dwayne Johnson, his manager Dany Garcia, Relativity President Tucker Tooley and French/West/Vaughan CEO/Chairman Rick French executive producing.
