Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Susan Sarandon may soon be working together. According to THR Sarandon is currently in negotiations to join the former WWE star on the set of Snitch an action thriller written and directed by Ric Roman Waugh.
Here’s a quick synopsis from The Hollywood Reporter:
The script centers on a suburban father who is hit hard when his teenage son is sentenced to 30 years under mandatory minimum drug laws. In order to reduce his son’s sentence, the father goes undercover to serve up a senior drug dealer. The story is based on a Frontline documentary.
The role Sarandon will play was originally written for a male character and then reworked for Sarandon to play a U.S. attorney who believes a big drug bust will push her political career in the right direction.
The movie is being produced by Nigel Sinclair, Guy East and Alex Brunner, David Fanning, Dany Garcia and Dwayne Johnson.
Susan Sarandon has been busy lately with several movies in post-production including Robot and Frank, Arbitrage, I Hate You Dad and The Wedding. Sarandon is currently filming The Company You Keep and Cloud Atlas. Currently in pre-production is her next project Hemlock Drive.
Summit Entertainment will release Snitch in the U.S.
