Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson recently teased a cryptic videogame adaption, and according to a new source, the mystery has been solved. The Rock is getting ready to bring the world of Call of Duty to the big screen, according to Giant Freakin Robot. Johnson is also reportedly in talks to direct the Call of Duty film, according to their “trusted and proven inside source,” and while they go on to say that The Rock is only “in talks” at the moment, it is believed that the talks will “go through.”
That’s all we know at the moment, with the source unable to “confirm what the story will be” and thus which game the Call of Duty movie will be based on.
Activision revealed in 2015 that they were working on a cinematic universe. While there has been no further word on the project, it appears that the studio and The Rock have finally figured out a method to bring Call of Duty to theaters. Dwayne Johnson is no stranger to video game adaptations, having starred in Doom and Rampage, among others.
On July 29, 2022, The Rock will join another tremendously successful genre, comic book movies, with the upcoming Black Adam, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra.
