Dwayne Johnson to Star in Earthquake Disaster Pic San Andreas


Dwayne Johnson will star in New Line’s earthquake disaster movie, San Andreas, says The Hollywood Reporter. He will reteam with his Journey 2: The Mysterious Island director Brad Peyton on the film, being produced by Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson.

The studio is planning to start filming in April, 2014 for a 2015 release date. According to the trade, “the script is set after a devastating earthquake hits California and centers on a man making a perilous trip across the state to rescue his estranged daughter. Johnson will play that man, described as a rugged rescue helicopter pilot.”

Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore wrote the first draft of the script with Chad and Carey Hayes working on the most current draft.
