Ok, get ready for this… Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is planning on starring in a sci-fi comedy movie called Alpha Squad Seven at Dreamworks.

Mic drop.

Seriously though, the actor and San Andreas producer Beau Flynnare are teaming with Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer, the guys behind the pitch which has Beau Flynn producing via his FlynnPictureCo banner along with Johnson, who will produce through his 7 Bucks Productions.

Not much is known about the movie but ” the project is described as four-quadrant action-comedy adventure set in space. Independence Day, Armageddon and Guardians of the Galaxy are some of the watchwords,” and it’s the planned start of a franchise…

The idea was being bid on last week and came down to DreamWorks and Paramount but DreamWorks signed on the dotted line ultimately..

This could, potentially, be something to keep an eye on…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
