Dwayne Johnson has big muscles, but it’ll take more than that to beat the enemy in his new movie “Not Without Hope”.
Johnson, a former college football player turned wrestler turned actor, will be playing the lead in Relativity’s “Not Without Hope”, an adaptation of the real-life memoir by ex-football player Nick Schuyler. Johnson will play Schuyler, who along with four friends “were on a fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico when their boat capsized, stranding the four men at sea.”
I actually remember hearing about this story on the news, but it was one of those one-day-and-done things and I don’t recall very much about it. It wasn’t a “Captain Phillips” type story, with hijackers and AK-47s, so it didn’t really have “legs”, as they say.
Of course, whether the film actually gets made or not is another matter. Johnson has been attached to a bunch of films these days, including the recent “SEAL Team 666″, and unless I’m wrong, he’s also contractually obligated to 60 more “Fast and Furious” movies. Or thereabouts.
