Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson To Star In Upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops Movie?

At least, that’s what the Rock is allegedly cooking. Although he made his return to the WWE last week, the Rock, in this interview with MTV interviewer Josh Horowitz , has expressed interest in starring in a Call of Duty: Black Ops movie. Coincidentally, I share a last name with Josh Horowitz, but that’s like claiming your related to someone named Smith if that was also your last name. Horowitz is essentially the Smith of Jews.

In the interview, the Rock thought that making his dream project would be ‘bad-ass’ and went on to say “Let’s make it happen, let’s do it,” After hearing about this news, I felt something like this.

Seriously, Bro?

I think the Rock’s a pretty cool guy and all, and is certainty pumped full of man-tosterone not unlike the Call of Duty franchise itself, but is he really capable of headlining another video game movie after the failed DOOM film? Not that an A-List talent would be needed for this role, but if I were a producer, I’d be skeptical to let the Rock near another popular video game IP. What do you guys think? Does the Rock have what it takes to headline a Call of Duty film?

  • Thanks for that intriguing info on a possible CoD: Black Ops movie. Coincidentally, the laptop I am writing this comment on is black, but that’s like claiming your using a white laptop when the article your commenting on is also about something white. White is essentially the New Black.

    In this news article, you thought that the Rock is “a pretty cool guy and all’ and “I felt something like this,” After reading this I felt like that photo of you smiling.

      I’m sorry I really don’t understand what you’re getting at there. the article is just about the rock making a comment in an interview that he’d be interested in starring in a call of duty: black ops movie. That’s all.

      • I am sorry that my earlier comment was rather vague and off-topic. I think that bringing on Dwayne Johnson would be overly gimmicky, in a way which would signal that the film producers have little faith in their own product — they are just hoping that it can be carried by Johnson’s celebrity. In doing so they may also unwittingly confine the movie to the demographic profile of Monday night wrestling, thus missing out on many other demographics, such as gamers who would prefer watching The Daily Show or Glee.

    It’s totally fine I was just not understanding what you were saying. I agree, I wouldn’t want the Rock near this piece of IP, mainly because like you said, it alienates a lot of demographics and tries to be overly masculine. Yes, Call of Duty is a manly franchise, but the gamers that play it are all not.
