DWAYNE ‘The Rock’ Johnson has confirmed he’s working on a movie about one of the biggest games of all time.
The Jumanji star hasn’t revealed which popular game is being adapted into a film but there’s a lot of speculation that it’s Fortnite.
Johnson is keeping tight-lipped about the project but says all will be revealed some time in 2022.
He has hinted that ‘gamers’ will be pleased with the movie.
He told the Men’s Journal: “I can’t tell you which game in particular we’re doing, but there will be an announcement this year.
“We’re going to bring one of the biggest, most badass games to the screen – one that I’ve played for years.
“I’m really excited to bring it to fans around the world.
“Of course we’re going to do right by our gamer friends – but really we’re just going to make a great movie.”
Will there be a Fortnite film?
According to TechRadar, a few video games could be front runners for Johnson’s film adaption.
The Rock mentioned his love for the American football gaming series Madden in his interview with Men’s Journal.
However, mentioning this just before talking about his top secret gaming movie seems too obvious.
TechRadar suspects a Fortnite or Call of Duty movie would be much more likely.
Fortnite stands out because The Rock has already starred in the video game series.
He appeared as The Foundation, the founder and leader of a sentient group of beings called The Seven.
It’s possible Johnson could play this character in a live-action film.
Gaming fans have taken to social media to speculate and some think the film could be based on God of War or Gears of War.
However, Fortnite seems to be the fan favorite.
One person tweeted: “If the rock’s new video game movie isn’t Fortnite after that big reveal we had I’ll be disappointed.”
Another said: “My money is on Fortnite. He’s already the face of a main character in the game.”
Another joked: “Either The Rock is in the Mario movie, or they’re making a Fortnite movie and he plays the foundation, there is no other option, and if it isn’t one of those two, Dwayne Johnson will have an angry mob at his house.”
