Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has had his fair share of Hollywood action over the years and his reign as one of the hardest working action stars isn’t slowing down yet.
In a recent interview with the man built like the side of a house, Johnson revealed he’s been working on bringing “one of the biggest, badass games to the screen,” and we’re discussing if it could be a armament of war movie.
DC fans can’t wait to see Johnson make his DCEU debut as black adam this summer as he channels the Egyptian anti-hero who is set to put on a spectacular magic show for the fandom.

Dwayne Johnson interview
In an interview with men’s diary, Johnson was asked if he had anything on his schedule regarding video games, prompting the response:
“We’re going to bring one of the biggest, badass games to the screen, the one I’ve been playing in years.”
Johnson also confirmed that players can expect an announcement on which game will be adapted this year.
The actor also brought solace to a sea of gamers who are all too aware of the video game curse in film that has doomed many projects in the past:
“Of course, we’re going to do the right thing for our fellow gamers, but really, we’re just going to make a great movie.”
Johnson prefaced his response to the question by stating that he was a huge fan of crazy, however, we don’t see a battle royale-style football game on the big screen anytime soon.
Could the project be a Gears of War movie?
The Men’s Journal interviewer also prefaced his question by referring to Johnson’s long relationship with Microsoft and Xbox, hinting that it could be a franchise from that camp.
armament of war definitely sounds like a blazing cannon, pedal to the bonanza of metal action that The Rock might be involved in.
The actor and athlete physique would also match that of the characters Marcus Fenix and Dominic Santiago combined with the COG armor, and the dynamic between the franchise’s main characters also provides the opportunity for actors of the same ilk to unite with him.
Actors Dave Bautista and John Cena had their names thrown into the fan casting list for a armament of war live-action front and all three of them could definitely deliver some high-octane action.

What else is in the pipeline for Johnson?
In addition to the promotional tour and post-production for black adam, and now the preparations we know about for a video game movie, Johnson also has a number of other projects in the works.
For starters, it was recently announced that the actor will be teaming up with Chris Evans to work on the Christmas action flick, The Red.
Johnson is also in post-production with DC League of Super Pets and currently working on the ad San Andreas suite as well as that of Robert Zemeckis, The king.
If that already seems like too much on a plate, The Rock is ready to prove us wrong again. A Doc Savage series was also announced with Johnson attached, as well as a Big problem in little China redo.
On top of all that, the former wrestler also promoted his line of official UFC shoes, Project Rock.
