  1. Something he’s played for years, gota be something to do with wrestling or need for speed.
    Can’t see what other type of video game he’d be cast in. Cool

  2. “. . .one of the biggest, most badass games. . .”

    There are a lot of possibilities here with that phrasing if we take it at face value. DOOM, Halo, Wolfenstein, GTA, Dead Space, and Bioshock all come to mind that The Rock could fit roles within.

    Watch it be Brawlhalla though since he already has a character reskin in that game.

    1. Or a sci-fi, thriller movie about a bald astronaut who crash lands on an alien planet and has to survive the giant, man-eating beasts that come out at night while he tries to repair his ship before his oxygen supply depletes.

  3. Cuz the last two (Doom was just Resident Evil in space & Rampage didn’t even use the original story of the monsters being human scientists) were great & stayed true to the canon of the games they were based on! sarcasm I’ll give him one more chance but he’s already two strikes in. One more strike & I’m putting him on the same level as Uwe Boll & Paul WS Anderson: keep these guys the hell away from movie adaptations of video games!

  4. A movie about wrestling, another Nacho Libre movie with Jack Black.The Rocks a comedian in the ring and his mic skills are a joke. Like his botched wrestling moves, that he’s used for years.

    I’d be impressed if it was a Cena movie, The Rocks probably busy making another Rundown movie again with Earnie Reys jr from TMNT Secret of The Ooze.

    Cena Cena Cena!!!
    A game he’s played for years, probably a movie adaptation of “Smack down Vs Raw, featuring EcW”
    Because EcW had actual talent.
