Dwayne Johnson to star in San Andreas

Dwayne Johnson (Fast & Furious 6, Hercules: The Thracian Wars) will star in the long gestating disaster pic San Andreas. Johnson will be playing a “rugged helicopter pilot who must cross California following a disaster to rescue his estranged daughter.”

Johnson is certainly an enigmatic lead but he is sadly, paired with his Journey 2: The Mysterious Island director Brad Peyton. The script for the film is currently being written by Chad and Carey Hayes (The Conjuring).

Although an exact opening date is yet to be confirmed, filming on San Andreas begins in April 2014 for a release some time in 2015.

    Dwayne Johnson will kill that role, and any he plays (as always).
