First The Rock Now Goliath?

31 August 2011

Former professional wrestler Dwayne Johnson, known to fans as The Rock is in talks about joining Goliath.

The cinematic version of the David and Goliath story is being planned by the writer and director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose Scott Derrickson, and producers are currently talking with Johnson about the possibility of him playing the film’s villain.

Johnson would definitely be a good signing to the movie, after all he spent many years in a wrestling ring so he has the body to match the huge Goliath and he certainly was considered a bit of a warrior in the wrestling world, and theres no doubt that he could bring quite a big audience to this considering his wrestling fan based.

However the film may have to wait a while yet as Derrickson is currently preparing to start his new film Sinister, while Johnson is currently filming G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation.
