Dwayne Johnson Provides Updates on JUMANJI Sequel and DOC SAVAGE
Dwayne Johnson is a very busy boy.
After being involved in two of 2017’s biggest hits – The Fate of the Furious and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – and starting off 2018 with Rampage, the wrestler-turned-actor has a lot on his plate.
Johnson has updated fans on the Jumanji sequel on his Instagram. In the post, Johnson says he and his team are hard-at-work getting the sequel done and also takes time to poke some fun at his co-star, Kevin Hart.
Meanwhile, Johnson also provided an update on another project that has been long in the works, Doc Savage, which will star Johnson as the titular hero with heightened physical and mental abilities. Speaking with Collider, Johnson said that the project hitting a few snags, along with he and director Shane Black having pretty busy schedules, are the reason why the film’s progress has been slow.
First of all, love Shane Black and we’ve had multiple meetings on that project that we were going to work on. Right now, Shane’s doing things. I’m doing things. That project had a few issues, not creative issues but more so business affairs issues — where the project once was, who had rights to it, where we were trying to move it to. There was a lot of that, which we’re still kind of working through. At the end of the day, Shane’s such a spectacular writer or director, but whether it’s that project or something else, we’ve made a pact that we’re going to work together at some point in our careers.
With all these projects, on top of other films like Disney’s Jungle Cruise and DC’s Black Adam in the works, it seems like the artist formally known as The Rock won’t have a lot of down time in the near future.
