This 2021 has been a year of great projects for Dwayne Johnson in his film career, as he has been involved in titles such as Jungle Cruise, Black Adam, DC League of super-pets, and Red Notice. However, perhaps one of the most anticipated by the actor and by fans is the reboot of The Scorpion King, whose launch was revealed in 2020 by the actor himself.
Now, a new update has arrived. Hiram garcia, President of Production of Seven Bucks Productions, gave an interview to the specialized portal Collider, where he offered new details about the revival of the film.
“We have just received a first draft and are polishing it. It’s such a beloved franchise and, as you’ve mentioned, the whole world, including the Mummy and the Scorpion King, is so much fun that we want to continue telling stories in that space. “
As Screen Rant explains, it had already been reported that the writer of Straight Outta Compton, Jonathan Herman, nominated for an Oscar for the NWA biopic, would write the script for the film, which will function as a spin-off of the famous saga The Mummy.
Regarding the main role, international media point out that ‘The rock’ would not give life to the protagonist, although some portals slide the possibility that it has an appearance in the final cut. In fact, The Hollywood Reporter presented some statements that the actor himself made when the project was made official.
“The Scorpion King was my first role on the big screen and I am honored and excited to reimagine and bring this great mythology to a whole new generation. I wouldn’t have had the career I’m lucky to have had it not been for The Scorpion King and I am delighted that at Seven Bucks Productions we can help create those same opportunities for other actors who work hard today. I think Jonathan Herman will strive to deliver a fantastic script to our global audiences, ”he detailed.
