First rumored to be attached back in June, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has taken to the social media airwaves to confirm he’s in talks to star in “The Janson Directive” for Universal Pictures.
Based on the novel by the late Robert Ludlum (“The Bourne Identity”), Johnson is slated to play a former consular ops agent who goes into business as a private security consultant after a high number of sanctioned killings.
He later teams with a sharpshooter and only takes assignments that he believe will help people in need. “A Beautiful Mind” scribe Akiva Goldsman will pen the script and Johnson himself will produce.
