DWAYNE JOHNSON IN TALKS FOR WWE STUDIOS MOVIE



The Hollywood Reporter broke the news yesterday that Dwayne “The Rock”
Johnson and director McG are both in talks to head up the Fall Guy movie
which will be financed by WWE Studios and Hyde Park Entertainment. Fall
Guy was an ABC series that ran from 1981 to 1986 and starred Lee Majors as
a Hollywood stunt man who supplemented his income by doing bounty hunter
work. The script was written by Zack Stentz and Ashley Edward Miller who
worked on Thor and X-Men: First Class. If everything goes according to
plan, this will be Johnson’s first involvement with WWE Studios in a
leading role. WWE got credit in his early movies such as Scorpion King and
The Rundown since they owned his name and trademark back then.
