It’s hard to deny Dwayne Johnson’s natural charm, a trait that he’s translated into a successful film career. The Rock is now going to have to turn his charms on monsters as he’s been tapped to star in the adaptation of the Monster Hunter’s Survival Guide. He may be headlining Survivor Series and Wrestlemania for the WWE once again, but Johnson also has his sights set on becoming a badass brand name in films. Johnson and Vin Diesel are essentially the trimmed and toned up versions of Schwarzenegger and Stallone.
According to Deadline Dwayne Johnson is now attached to star in the Simon Kinberg produced film. Based on the comic series by John Paul Russ, we’re not sure what the movie version of the Survival Guide will be. As the title suggests the comics are chock full of tips on how to make it through an encounter with vampires, Big Foot, werewolves, zombies, and other sordid creatures.
Of course we’ve already begun keeping a rulebook thanks to Zombieland, but after what Kinberg did with X-Men: First Class I’m excited for what he brings to the survival genre. As for Johnson reembracing his inner Rock once more, we all know that the man is at his best when being a fast talking smart mouthed ass kicker. Those who disagree can have their size 12 boot turned sideways and shoved straight up their candy ass. Or so The Rock says.
