Following a behind-the-scenes image from earlier today, New Line Cinema and Village Roadshow Pictures have officially announced that principal photography begins Tuesday, April 22, on location in Australia for San Andreas, starring Dwayne Johnson. The action thriller reunites Johnson with director Brad Peyton and producer Beau Flynn, following their collaboration on the global hit Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.

After the infamous San Andreas Fault finally gives, triggering a magnitude 9 earthquake in California, a search and rescue helicopter pilot (Johnson) and his estranged wife make their way together from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their only daughter. But their treacherous journey north is only the beginning, and when they think the worst may be over…it’s just getting started.

The film also stars Carla Gugino (Night at the Museum, "Entourage"), Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, "True Detective") and Archie Panjabi ("The Good Wife"), as well as Hugo Johnstone-Burt ("Home and Away") and Art Parkinson ("Game of Thrones").

San Andreas is being produced by Beau Flynn (Hercules, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island). Tripp Vinson (Red Dawn) will also serve as producer. Richard Brener, Samuel J. Brown, Michael Disco, Rob Cowan and Bruce Berman are the executive producers, and Hiram Garcia is co-producer. The screenplay is by Carlton Cuse and Chad Hayes & Carey Hayes, story by Jeremy Passmore & Andre Fabrizio.

The creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Steve Yedlin (Looper), production designer Barry Chusid (The Day After Tomorrow), editor Bob Ducsay (upcoming Godzilla), VFX producer Randall Starr (upcoming Into the Storm), VFX supervisor Colin Strause (The Avengers), and costume designer Wendy Chuck (Twilight).

San Andreas is slated to open in theatres on Friday, June 5, 2015.

The film will be shot on location in The Gold Coast and Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, and in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

A New Line Cinema presentation, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, San Andreas is a FlynnPictureCo. Production. It will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.
