The Rock Stars In New Action Movie “SKYSCRAPER”
The ever-so-ubiquitous Dwayne Johnson just keeps signing on to new films left and right. With new films like The Fate of The Furious, Baywatch, and Jumanji coming out in 2017, it’s no surprise he’s the brand he is today.
Now he’s signed on to be the new franchise head in a new action thriller called Skyscraper, which is slated to release 2018. I know it sounds like a Die Hard try-hard if you just hear the title, so here is the plot according to Deadline:
Johnson plays a former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Ford, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. On assignment in China he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he’s been framed for it, and now he’s on the run, and he has to save his family in the building.
The disaster film is set to have a big budget and it could possibly span into a franchise. It is set to be directed by Rawson Micheal Thurber, who has worked with The Rock before in Central Intelligence, so we’re expecting another awesome team-up to shake up theatres.
Skyscraper is set to come out July 13th, 2018.
