Dwayne Johnson will square off against a California earthquake next year.
San Andreas won’t hit the big screen until 2015, though this didn’t stop the Pain & Gain star from sharing a photo from the upcoming disaster flick on Instagram. Since Johnson passed around a ton of photos from the set of Hercules on Twitter last year, there’s probably more pics still to come.
“Puttin’ in a lot of hard a** work and proud to play my next role… Los Angeles Fire Department Air Squadron Rescue. Shooting starts in four weeks. Biggest earthquake of all time hits… SAN ANDREAS,” Dwayne Johnson wrote.
Check out the first pic from the disaster movie below.

Directed by Brad Peyton — a filmmaker who also worked with Johnson on Journey 2: The Mysterious Island — San Andreas tells the story of a chopper pilot who responds to a massive earthquake on the West Coast. To make matters worse for Dwayne’s character, the quake has put his daughter in harm’s way.
Of course, Dwayne Johnson isn’t tackling this project all by himself. The Inquisitr previously reported that Sin City star Carla Gugino recently signed on to co-star in the flick. Alexandra Daddario, an actress who caught everyone’s attention with her turn in HBO’s True Detective, appears in San Andreas as well. The movie should hit theaters on June 5, 2015.
There’s also a rumor making the rounds on a few websites that suggests Dwayne Johnson will replace Arnold Schwarzenegger on Terminator: Genesis. According to the folks at KdramaStars, an anonymous source believes Johnson will play the murderous cyborg while Schwarzenegger will play a human.
“Incredibly, Arnold Schwarzenegger might not play the role of the machine in the upcoming film but a potentially heroic human figure in or close to the Connor family. One theory is Schwarzenegger’s remarkable ability to protect the Connor family in the 40s or 50s with antiquated weapons by today’s standards ultimately inspired the machines to develop a terminator in his likeliness that was soon sent to 1984 when Sarah Connor was first targeted for termination,” the insider dished.
Neither Paramount Pictures nor Dwayne Johnson have confirmed his involvement with the latest Terminator flick just yet. Since the guy is often lovingly referred to as “franchise Viagra,” there’s always the possibility that producers could bring him on-board to help boost the film’s box office potential.
