Dwayne Johnson‘s transformation back into The Rock grows more complete with every casting. He’s just signed on to punch guys in the face and do that thing where you pick them up by the throat and then throw them down for the movie Snitch.
Johnson’s role in the action flick is a far cry from those that have required him to wear fairy wings and soap bubbles. He stars as a blue-collar working class dad on a mission to free his falsely-incarcerated son. That setup could mean we’ll see a more serious, morose Rock than we’ve ever seen before, as the desperation to save his character’s son coul drive him to extreme actions.
As of now, he’s the only cast attached to the film directed by former-stuntman Ric Roman Waugh. We’ll keep you posted when we know who he’ll get revenge on this time. (Deadline)
