James Franco and Dwayne Johnson have at least one thing in common: they both make us wonder when they ever have time to sleep. With their insane ability to commit to so many projects and the fact that they never look worse for the wear, we must begin to wonder: are they immortal? In the case of Johnson, at least, we can believe it. The actor has revealed new details on his upcoming Rampage project, along with a GIANT list of his current filming schedule / work commitments — which would make any mere mortal man weep. But yeah, he’s immortal, so.
The scheduled big-screen reboot of Baywatch has currently taken on the following performers: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Zac Efron, True Detective’s Alexandra Daddario, and supermodel Kelly Rohrbach. These master thespians have slavishly honed their craft over decades of careful study, schooling themselves in the minor intricacies of the Meisner technique and the Stanislavski method, rehearsing Shakespearean quotations, tongue-twisting their way through the librettos of Gilbert and Sullivan, and overall, elevating the very practice of screen acting. They’ve all immersed themselves in the work of the greats — Olivier, Brando, Davis, Bergman — and earned their roles through innumerable hours of rehearsal, training, and theory. Additionally, all of these people are phenomenally good-looking, though it would be a gross disservice to Ms. Rohrbach to suggest that she earned this role due to anything other than pure talent.
Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in a comedic Baywatch revival movie? We’re already sold, but some fans have probably been eager to see who would be cast to fill Pamela Anderson’s iconic red swimsuit in the role of C.J. Parker.

Disney’s next animated film (after Zootopia, of course) is Moana, which adds another diverse character to their lineup with the tale of a young South Pacific girl who embarks on a daring adventure to find a mythical island. The film doesn’t hit theaters until next November, but this new featurette gives us our first look at actual (but brief) footage from Moana.
Who knew it, the biggest and the smallest guys (literally) are the ones who will save the world.
Last week, Deadline reported that Paramount’s planned Baywatch reboot film starring none other than Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson has begun to run screen tests in search of a worthy leading lady to bound pendulously down the beach alongside him. Among...
We weren’t really interested in a Baywatch movie until Dwayne Johnson got involved — then again, Johnson’s name can guarantee our interest in just about anything. The upcoming big screen version of the classic ’90s TV series is also set to star Zac Efron, and has recently begun its search for some leading ladies. Paramount has reportedly tested a handful of actresses, including one that has some experience working with The Rock already.
So far, we only know some basic info about Disney’s next animated musical, Moana — Dwayne Johnson joined the voice cast months ago, and the studio offered a few details during D23, but nothing very substantial, like who exactly is playing the title role of the next Disney princess?

The diminishing creative returns of the Pirates of the Caribbean films and the outright failure of the Haunted Mansion movie almost certainly gave Disney pause on the long-gestating Jungle Cruise movie. This thing has been in development for ages. Then they went and did what any project in desperate need of a shot in the arm does – they cast Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
