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.
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?
