After yet another busy year for The Rock in 2021, a time that saw him star in several movies such as Jungle Cruise and Netflix’s Red Notice, as well as be revealed as The Foundation in Fortnite, it appears the Hollywood legend is looking to take the Call of Duty world to the big screen.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is Reportedly 'In Talks' to Star in a Call of Duty Movie
According to Giant Freakin Robot on Jan. 26, a "'trusted and proven inside source' has shared that Dwayne Johnson is currently in talks with studios about making a Call of Duty movie."
The report also adds that while it's still "unclear what direction" the story of the movie would take, it does sound like The Rock is "expecting" the talks to go through in order to get the green light on the project overall.
With all the craziness that's ensued with the Call of Duty franchise in recent weeks, from Microsoft's $68 billion purchase of Activision Blizzard to Warzone 2 seemingly already in the works, perhaps it's only fitting that we get a full-on movie for the series as well.
On Jan. 18, The Rock recently rebuffed his interest in working on more projects having to do with gaming in an interview with Men's Journal.
"I can’t tell you which game in particular we’re doing," The Rock told Men's Journal, "but there will be an announcement this year. We’re going to bring one of the biggest, most badass games to the screen — one that I’ve played for years. I’m really excited to bring it to fans around the world. Of course we’re going to do right by our gamer friends — but really we’re just going to make a great movie."
