Dwayne Johnson‘s stint in family films – Tooth Fairy, The Game Plan, Race to Witch Mountain– had me worried. Thought our noughties action star went soft (and fat) But then Faster and Fast Five happened and The Brahma Bull was back. More muscular and electrifying then ever. Yes, I’m a Rock fan-boy. Leave me alone.
Johnson is working his butt off this year to cement himself as this decades best action hero – shooting G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation and coming up he’s got Journey 2 on the docket as well as a Fast and Furious sequel Snitch and more. Oh, and he’s returning to the WWE for a tag-team match-up with John Cena. Pretty spectacular for a guy who picks things up and puts them down. Well, Johnson can add another notch in his belt of conquests as he will star in The Monster Hunter’s Survival Guide produced by Simon Kinberg.
The property is based on a comic book miniseries by John Paul Russ which ran five issues earlier this year with each issue focusing on a different type of monster and how to kill them. Issue #1 was “The Undead,” #2 was “Cryptids,” #3 was “Giant Monsters,” #4 was “Unnatural Beasts” and #5 was “Fantasy Creatures.”
I’d ask you how you feel about yet another comic-book adaptation, but IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW YOU FEEL. Alright, enough with the Rock puns. In all honestly, this sounds pretty good actually. Plus it’s more in line with what we want to see out of The Rock. Glad to see him laying the smackdown on all there candy asses once again. Sorry, couldn’t help myself.
