Dwayne Johnson to reportedly star in Call of Duty movie
According to a report from Giant Freakin Robot, Dwayne Johnson is in talks to star in a Call of Duty film.
While nothing is confirmed yet, the report states he’s currently in talks to get CoD on the big screen for the very first time. Call of Duty matches the description he gave for the franchise he was working on, as CoD certainly is one of the “biggest and baddest.”
The Rock has a long history of turning gaming franchises into movies, as he starred in 2005’s Doom and 2018’s Rampage, both of which are based on their gaming counterparts.
Dwayne Johnson has yet to comment on the report.
