New Line Re-Ups With Dwayne Johnson

Following their success this summer with “San Andreas,” New Line Cinema has crafted an untitled action comedy vehicle for Dwayne Johnson at FlynnPictureCo., Olive Bridge Entertainment and Seven Bucks Productions.

Storyline details are under wraps but said to be a throwback to the mismatched buddy action comedies of the 1980s like “Midnight Run” and “48 Hours”.

Will Gluck (“Easy A,” “Fired Up”) will direct and Dave Callaham (“Godzilla,” “The Expendables”) will write the project which Gluck and Johnson will produce. Johnson is currently filming “Baywatch” and will then shoot “Rampage”.
