Next year The Rock will appear in disaster epic San Andreas. In the movie, in the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California, a rescue-chopper pilot makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his estranged daughter.
The Rock updated his instagram account with the first official shot from the movie, adding: “Puttin’ in a lot of hard ass work and proud to play my next role… Los Angeles Fire Department Air Squadron Rescue. Shooting starts in 4 weeks. Biggest earthquake of all time hits… SAN ANDREAS. #FirstInLastOut”.
Well for my money it takes some balls to do a disaster epic. It’s a hard genre to crack, if only as a box office draw alone. The ‘estranged daughter’ stuff also sounds a bit worn and tired. But this is The Rock we’re talking about and I’m sure business is about to get handled.
