The Rock has played many roles throughout his successful Hollywood career. He is now going to play the role of a former UFC Champion.
According to a report by Variety, Dwayne Johnson will be acting in the leading role in an upcoming film based on the life of former two-time UFC Champion Mark Kerr. He will be producing this movie through Seven Bucks Productions. He made the announcement during the UFC weigh-ins and here is what he said:
“Mark Kerr’s story is such an incredible story. Like all of us, and like a lot of these fighters, he battled these demons — these demons of addiction, these demons of mental health, these demons of getting out and the pressure of fighting in front of 50,000 people and what that does to somebody. Here’s a guy who has gone through it all, hit rock bottom, but the best part about Mark Kerr is that, like all of us in this room and all these fighters, these warriors, is that every day, we get up and we want to do a little bit better tomorrow than we did today.”
It is unknown which studio will be attached to the film as of yet.
