Here’s every upcoming Dwayne Johnson movie and TV show. Few actors seem as hungry to add new projects to their slate as The Rock does these days. The former wrestler had already started acting prior to his retirement from the WWE in 2004, but it wasn’t until he joined the Fast & Furious franchise in 2011’s Fast Five that Johnson really hit his stride as a movie star. He’s since evolved into one of the more consistently bankable names in Hollywood, at a time when audiences are more invested in franchises than A-listers.
For much of the past decade, The Rock has found his niche starring in crowd-pleasing four-quadrant action movies. He hasn’t completely shied away from other types of projects (see: Pain & Gain), though they’re easily the exceptions. Given how carefully Johnson’s honed his brand over the years, it’s easy to forget there was a time when he was far more experimental with his career choices, even working with idiosyncratic directors like Richard Kelly (Donnie Darko). Presently, he’s much more inclined to collaborate with the same trusted studio hands over and over, and it’s hard to argue with his approach, based on the box office results.
hat will only continue to be the case for the foreseeable future, even as Johnson pushes to add additional IPs and franchises to his belt. At the same time, he also plans to try his hand at some prestigious fare, all while branching out into the realm of streaming with his first Netflix exclusives. Here’s every item (currently) on his to-do list.
In the years since they struck gold with the original Pirates of the Caribbean movie in 2003, Disney has tried and mostly failed to get other films based on their popular theme park rides into production. The sole exception so far (not counting Tomorrowland, which is only loosely connected to the theme park land of the same name) is Jungle Cruise, an action-adventure based on the studio’s longstanding river boat attraction. The movie stars Johnson and Emily Blunt as an early 20th century riverboat captain and scientist who team up to locate a mystical tree located somewhere in the Amazon. And while it takes its cues from classic films like The African Queen, the marketing suggests Jungle Cruise is trying really hard to model itself after the Pirates franchise. For now, its biggest hurdle has been locking down a release date: it was initially scheduled for October 2019 before it moved back to July 2020 and then again to July 2021 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Johnson and director Rawson Marshall Thurber have so far teamed up for two very different films (Central Intelligence and Skyscraper) that turned a tidy profit at the box office, despite their mixed reviews. For their third movie together, Red Notice, the pair are collaborating with Netflix after Universal initially won the distribution rights, but later balked at the estimated price tag ($125-150 million). The project stars Johnson as an INTERPOL agent who’s tasked with tracking down the world’s greatest art thief (Gal Gadot) with the aid of the world’s most notorious con man (Ryan Reynolds). An original action-comedy that’s already being likened to a live-action Carmen Sandiego film, Red Notice reunites The Rock with two of his costars from the Fast & Furious property. Production shut-down in March 2020 as part of the COVID-19 lockdowns, but is expected to resume before Johnson sets to work on…
The Rock has been attached to play DC villain-turned antihero Black Adam in a movie since as far back as 2008, a whole five years before the DCEU kicked off with Man of Steel. In that time, the project evolved from a Shazam! spinoff to a Black Adam solo vehicle, with the plan being to introduce Johnson’s DCEU character before he and Zachary Levi’s costumed crime-fighter potentially duke it out on the big screen in Shazam 3. Behind the camera, the film will reunite Johnson with his Jungle Cruise director Jaume Collet-Serra and Rampage co-writer Adam Sztykiel, in addition to cinematographer Lawrence Sher (coming off his first Oscar nod for bringing Joker‘s vision of Gotham City to gorgeously grimy life). Assuming they’re given the all-clear, production will begin in August or September for a December 2021 release date.
Hobbs & Shaw 2
In-between developing new franchises and star vehicles, Johnson continues to devote his attention to plotting out the next chapters in his already-established properties. That includes Hobbs & Shaw 2, a sequel to the hit Fast & Furious spinoff featuring Johnson’s Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw. The Rock has confirmed Hobbs & Shaw 2 is in the early stages of development and it’s expected to pay-off the tease in the first movie by revealing the mysterious Director of the cyberterrorist organization Eteon. It’s also believed the film will bring back the new Fast & Furious team introduced in Hobbs & Shaw – including, Vanessa Kirby as Shaw’s MI6 agent sister Hattie and Eiza González as the thief Madame M, along with Kevin Hart and Reynolds as the comic relief Air Marshal Dinkley and CIA agent Victor Locke – in an expanded capacity.
Much like Hobbs & Shaw 2, the fourth Jumanji movie (and third to star Johnson) is still in early pre-production, yet actively moving forward. Presumably, the sequel aims to build on the credits scene for Jumanji: The Next Level, which showed animals from the enchanted Jumanji video game running wild in the real-world. Johnson and Hart will undoubtedly reprise their roles as avatars from the game in Jumanji 4, along with Karen Gillan, Jack Black, Nick Jonas, and most likely The Next Level addition Awkwafina. Johnson and series director Jake Kasdan have also confirmed The Next Level‘s villain Jurgen the Brutal (Rory McCann) is a playable avatar, potentially paving the way for the character’s return in the latest installment. Not to mention, with creatures from Jumanji escaping the game, it’s possible the movie will bring the avatars and their players face-to-face for the first time.
Between his early days as a professional wrestler (having been born into a famous Samoan wrestling family) and his movie and TV career, The Rock has led an interesting life. Viewers will get a glimpse behind the curtain on the upcoming Young Rock, a biographical show about Johnson’s formative years that’s slated to premiere on NBC midseason in 2021. The actor is confirmed to appear throughout the show’s first season, but his actual role is unclear at the moment. It’s possible he will serve as the TV series’ narrator and recount his experiences as a young man and child, in the tradition of the classic coming of age dramedy The Wonder Years.
Easily the most highbrow of Johnson’s upcoming projects, The King is a historical epic about real-life Hawaiian King Kamehameha I and his efforts to unify the warring Hawaiian islands against the European ships arriving on their shores in the 18th century. The Rock is attached to play Kamehameha I in the film, with Randall Wallace of Braveheart fame writing the script and Robert Zemeckis directing. Originally, when the movie was announced in the summer of 2018, the plan was to begin production in 2020, but obviously that’s no longer happening and Zemeckis has since become attached to helm Disney’s live-action Pinocchio retelling next. Still, The King is said to be a very personal passion project for Johnson, so don’t be surprised if he circles back to this one sometime in the next year or two.
Big Trouble In Little China
John Carpenter’s martial arts fantasy-comedy Big Trouble in Little China was a commercial bomb upon its release in 1986, but has gone on to attain cult status in the decades since then. A remake starring Johnson was announced in 2015 (much to the disgruntlement of fans of Carpenter’s original movie), but it’s since been clarified the film will be a loose continuation, presumably much like the actor’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a quasi-sequel to the 1995 Jumanji movie. There haven’t been any major updates on the project for the past two years, so it’s unclear whether it’s still happening or has fallen by the wayside (similar to what happened to the Doc Savage movie Johnson and Shane Black were planning a few years ago).
John Henry And The Statesmen
As with The King and Big Trouble in Little China, John Henry and the Statesmen is a Johnson vehicle that was announced then quickly shuffled to the back-burner. The first entry in a potential shared universe of movies about folklore heroes and legends like John Henry, the film is set up at Netflix and slated to star Johnson, with Kasdan directing and Tom Wheeler writing. Both Johnson and Wheeler have other projects brewing at the streaming service, with the latter preparing to premiere his fantasy series Cursed on Friday, July 17. It’s possible, then, the idea is to revisit this one after Johnson and Kasdan have made Jumanji 4 and Wheeler is a little less preoccupied with his Netflix show.
