The Rock Talks ‘Spy Hunter’


The Rock sat down with MTV and talked a bit about his role in the highly anticipated videogame adaptation Spy Hunter, and he assured fans the film will be made, here is what he had to say.

Spy Hunter is going great… We’ve got Stuart Beattie who’s writing it right now, who wrote Collateral as well as Pirates of the Caribbean, so he’s a great writer, he’s got a great take on it. Spy Hunter is one of those movies that we announced almost two years ago and everybody who I run into is like, ‘Where’s Spy Hunter? It’s one of those movies that you cannot get wrong. That’s why it’s so important that the writing is right, the feel, the tone is right. You see the car, you see [my character] Alec Sects. So it’s going to be the real deal once it’s done.” The star also said no one else had been cast yet: “Not yet — just myself and the car, the Interceptor. And that thing is bad. We’ve already seen some early drawings of it and early renditions of it on video. It just jumps off a cliff, turns into a boat, then into a motorcycle when it comes back on land. It’s badass.”

So there you have it, it will be made. In the meantime The Rock is starring in another videogame adaptation, Doom, which is set for theaters on October 21st, click here for more on that.
