Over the years, we have seen a huge amount of wrestling stars making the move into the acting industry, trying to prove that they have what it takes to enjoy a long and successful career in Hollywood, mixing it with some of the best acting talent in the world. While a lot of these wrestlers have failed to impress on the big screen, with others proving that they do have some acting talent, there are none that quite compare to Dwayne Johnson.
Dwayne Johnson rose to fame as The Rock in the WWE, before then going on to make the move into the acting industry, going on to become a very sought after and popular actor indeed. Dwayne has already appeared in a huge amount of movies in his acting career, with plenty more projects lined up over the course of the next few years.
Dwayne Johnson currently has three projects in production; the movie Fast and Furious 7, which will hit the big screen on April 3, 2015 in both the US and the UK; the film San Andreas, which is scheduled to open on May 29, 2015 in both the US and the UK; and the upcoming television series Ballers, which is currently filming and will air on HBO next year.
Meanwhile, Dwayne Johnson has no less than 15 projects that are currently in development, with the star on board in either an acting role as a producer. Of these 15 films, we would have to say that we are most excited about seeing Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam in Shazam, which is aiming for release on April 5, 2019.
