“Daddy’s gotta go to work” was the moment of Furious 7, with Dwayne Johnson’s Hobbs Hulking-out of his cast and picking up the biggest machine gun you’ve ever seen — matched only by the size of his insane biceps. According to Johnson, we can expect a very different side of Hobbs when he returns for Fast 8, and you can get your first look at the Furious favorite courtesy of the actor himself (obviously).

Dwayne Johnson continues to be the hardest working actor in Hollywood, seemingly immune to the flaws that plague mere mortals — like getting tired and needing a good nap. The actor has added yet another project to his ambitious pile, which already includes Fast 8, Jumanji, that recently announced Robert Ludlum cinematic universe, and (probably) Doc Savage. Basically, Dwayne Johnson is making you look lazy right now.

A “Robert Ludlum Cinematic Universe” seems like a fairly unlikely concept, but it has been attempted before — when Matt Damon exited the Bourne franchise, Universal tried to keep the series going with Jeremy Renner in The Bourne Legacy. While that chem-riddled experiment failed, the studio is attempting something a bit more ambitious, reuniting Dwayne Johnson with The Rundown screenwriter James Vanderbilt for a new franchise based on Ludlum’s other, non-Bourne titles.

Another week, another exciting Instagram update from our crazy-busy, impossibly charming and totally ripped pal Dwayne Johnson. Despite his increasingly crowded schedule, it looks like Johnson may have finally found some time to devote to Shane Black’s long-developing Doc Savage movie — thus confirming our suspicions that The Rock may actually be an advanced A.I. that requires no sleep.

You really have no idea how loved a movie is until a studio announces plans to reboot it — such is the case with Jumanji, the 1995 film starring Robin Williams, which performed pretty well at the box office but didn’t leave a big impression on critics and (adult) audiences. But reactions to Dwayne Johnson’s new Jumanji movie offer a valuable lesson in the power of nostalgia, as fans have been quick to cry foul on the reboot. Johnson has heard you, and not only is he committed to making the best reboot possible, but he’s also found a “cool” way to honor the memory of Robin Williams.

If you are going to make a Baywatch movie — even one that’s a tongue-in-cheek satire of the original — there’s a few things you’ve got to have. You need men and women in red bathing suits. You need people running on the beach in slow motion. You need that magnificent theme song. You need at least one reference to Baywatch Nights. And you need David Hasslehoff and Pamela Anderson.

First announced last year, the remake / reboot of Jumanji based on the classic book-turned-adventure film starring Robin Williams seemed like a baffling idea. What could possibly make the average movie-goer excited about this remake? A great cast, for starters, and it looks like we might get just that as everyone’s new favorite odd comedic coupling are in talks to star in the new Jumanji movie.
