Quickly becoming the hardest working guy in Hollywood, actor Dwayne Johnson is adding another project to his to-do list. It was announced today that Johnson has attached himself to lead an adaptation of the best-selling memoir Not Without Hope for Relativity. Written by Nick Schuyler, the book recounts a 2009 fishing trip Schuyler took with four of his friends (including NFL players Marquis Cooper and Corey Smith) in the Gulf of Mexico that turned into a disaster when their boat capsized, stranding them at sea. It’s a harrowing account in the vein of Into Thin Air and should make for a nice dramatic vehicle for Johnson, who has recently been busy rejuvenating franchises left and right.
The actor recently wrapped Hercules: The Thracian Wars with director Brett Ratner and is currently reprising his role in Fast & Furious 7. He is also poised to return for G.I. Joe 3 and is attached to lead a number of developing projects including San Andreas, The Fall Guy, Lore, and the supernatural actioner Seal Team 666. Read the press release after the jump.
