Get more details on The Rock Joining Robert Ludlum The Janson Directive on the flip…
Johnson will hopefully be attaching himself to a franchise is the movie takes off. See the Ludlum book will be adapted by White House Down and The Amazing Spider-Man writer James Vanderbilt. This will be the beginning of a Robert Ludlum cinematic universe. Word is Mythology Entertainment fellas Brad Fischer and William Sherak and Captivate Entertainment people Ben Smith and Jeffrey Weiner will be hammering out the specifics of future films in a Ludlum cinematic universe.
And no this will NOT include Jason Bourne!
Instead, they will have to go off of books like The Parsifal Mosaic, The Sigma Protocol, and Covert One, for a full list of potential titles. Vanderbilt just has to come up with some treatments for more movies and hand them off to other screenwriters, so cross your fingers and see what will come of this.
As for The Janson Directive, it’ll be interesting seeing The Rock take on something like that after spending so much time being a somewhat kitschy version of himself. – BMD
From there we will see where this takes his character for crossover potential or just cameos.
The new film will add to the list of movies The Rock is already a part of. Currently Dwayne Johnson will star as Black Adam in “Shazam!”, reprise his role of Hank in the 2018 sequel, “Journey to the Center of the Earth”, start filming the remake of “Jumanji”. He has already wrapped production on “Baywatch” as Mitch Buchannon and is currently filming “Fast 8” reprising the role of Hobbs. And to top all that he doing voice over for “Moana”, an upcoming animated movie.
We will keep you posted…
