Dwayne Johnson must have more hours in the day than the average human being.
Not only is the extremely busy actor attached to both Brett Ratner’s fantasy flick Hercules and James Wan’s star-studdent sequel Fast and Furious 7, Johnson is also slated to star in the adaptation of the supernatural adventure novel Seal Team 666.
The film follows the adventures of several soldiers tasked with battling an unholy legion of demons and otherworldly creatures. Not surprisingly, it doesn’t take very long for our heroes to discover that there’s something much more sinister lurking within the shadows.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hercules scribe Evan Spiliotopoulos penned the adaptation of author Weston Ochse’s novel. The folks at MGM are in the process of putting the project together.
Coming Soon reports that Ochse’s book was originally released in 2012. The action-adventure tale is officially described by the publisher as follows:
“Halfway through SEAL training, Cadet Jack Walker, still green but showing incredible promise, is whisked away to join four SEALs and their dog for a special ops mission. Walker soon finds himself in a whirlwind of otherworldly creatures and events as he discovers the true nature of SEAL Team 666.”
The synopsis continues:
“Battling demons, possessed humans, mass-murdering cults, and evil in its darkest and most and ancient form, the members of SEAL Team 666 have their work cut out for them. And it’s not long before they realize that the threat isn’t directed against the US alone — an ancient and deadly cult has far bigger plans, and Walker is at the center of a supernatural conflict in which the entire world is at stake.”
Dwayne Johnson can’t seem to stop working these days. When he’s finished with the Fast and Furious sequel, there’s a very strong possibility that the actor will reprise his role as Roadblock in the next installment of the G.I. Joe series.
The Inquisitr previously reported that Johnson is also attached to star in the natural disaster flick San Andreas. Helmed by Journey 2: The Mysterious Island director Brad Peyton, the film finds Dwayne Johnson tackling the role of a rescue helicopter pilot who must contend with the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California.
If that’s not enough to keep you happy, then you’ll be delighted to know that the actor is in talks to star in Charlie’s Angels director McG’s adaptation of The Fall Guy. Screenwriters Zack Stentz and Ashley Edward Miller reportedly provided the script for the project.
