Netflix Picks Up ‘Ball and Chain’ With Dwayne Johnson & Emily Blunt

Netflix has acquired Ball and Chain, a superhero film starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt.

Oscar nominee Emily V. Gordon (The Big Sick) is writing the script, adapted from the 1990s comic of the same name by Scott Lobdell. It follows a married couple going through relationship turmoil who also have superpowers, but they only work properly when they’re together.


Johnson and Blunt recently teamed on Disney’s Jungle Cruise, a family adventure that’s scheduled to release in theaters next year.

In addition to starring in Ball and Chain, Johnson and Blunt are also producing the film. Johnson’s Seven Bucks banner with Dany and Hiram Garcia will help produce along with Kevin Misher. Lobdell is executive producing along with Andy Berman for Misher Films.
