Another CBM For THE ROCK; He Joins Graphic Novel Adap CIUDAD

It's all about "The Great One" today! Dwayne Johnson has signed on to star in Ciudad, an action thriller to be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, which is based on the Oni Press graphic novel they co-wrote..

Only an hour or so ago Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was confirmed to star as Hercules in Brett Ratner's take on The Thracian Wars, and now we have news of another CBM role on the horizon. But this won't be of the superhero variety. Deadline report that Johnson will star in the "intense action thriller" Ciudad..



Ciudad is based on the upcoming Oni Press graphic novel that the Russo Brothers co-wrote with Ande Parks. Set in one of the most dangerous and corrupt cities in the world, the thriller will star Johnson as a black market mercenary hired by a Brazilian drug lord to rescue his kidnapped daughter.


Something tells me that won't be too much of a stretch for him to play! This will be Joe and Anthony Russo's first foray into the action genre. Their last feature was 2006's You, Me & Dupree, and since that they have focused on television shows such as Community, Happy Endings, and Arrested Development. Joe Russo will write the script, and the movie will be produced by Eric Gitter and Peter Schwerin of Closed on Mondays Entertainment (Scott Pilgrim VS The World). We will next see Johnson as Roadblock in Gi Joe: Retaliation - unless you happen to be a Pro-Wrestling fan, in which case it'll be April 1st when he locks up with John Cena at Wrestlemania.
