More on The Rock’s new movie project
Nov 16, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck
Variety is reporting that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has landed the
leading role of an upcoming movie titled Not Without Hope. Not Without
Hope recounts the true story, based on a memoir by Nick Schuyler, that
follows four friends who were on a fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico when
their boat capsized, stranding all four men at sea. The Rock will play the
role of Schuyler. Nick Schuyler’s book is extremely moving, and
Relativity is proud to work with the Rock, Nick and the entire team on
creating a movie that honors this powerful story, said Robbie Brenner,
president of production for Relativity. I was inspired and gut wrenched
when I first saw this true story. This role is special to me.
