There are two things Hollywood loves without question, and those two things are superhero films and Dwayne Johnson.
So why not combine them? It’s being reported that Johnson and Emily Blunt will star in an upcoming superhero flick titled Ball and Chain.
Ball and Chain is being written by Oscar nominee Emily V. Gordon and is an adaptation of the ’90s comic of the same name by Scott Lobdell. It follows a married couple going through relationship turmoil who also have superpowers, but they only work properly when they’re together.
Gordon co-wrote ‘The Big Sick‘ with her husband Kumail Nanjiani, so at least we know there will be a talented screenwriter behind the project.
But still, the premise sounds a little…uh, silly? I feel like it’s going to be hard to pull off, but there are a lot of talented people involved, so maybe they can do it together.
The project is currently being shopped among multiple studios, but no deal has closed yet.
We’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, you can catch Johnson and Blunt together in Disney’s Jungle Cruise, which is set to hit theaters next summer.
