DreamWorks Pictures is teaming with San Andreas star Dwayne Johnson for a new sci-fi action comedy titled Alpha Squad Seven. The Hollywood Reporter says that Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer are behind the pitch, which has Beau Flynn producing via his FlynnPictureCo. along with Johnson, who will produce through his 7 Bucks Productions.
The trade says that plot details are being kept under wraps, though the project is described as a four-quadrant action-comedy adventure set in space.
Dany Garcia of the Garcia Companies will executive produce and Hiram Garcia will associate produce through 7 Bucks Productions.
Johnson is currently shooting the New Line comedy Central Intelligence opposite Kevin Hart, while the Johnson-starring Ballers premieres on HBO on June 21. He also has the animated Disney film Moana coming and will play Black Adam in Shazam.
