– Although the plan is to have The Rock involved at WrestleMania 21 later this year in April, it doesn’t look like his movie career will be slowing down anytime soon. “Be Cool”, the sequel to 1995’s “Get Shorty”, starring The Rock along with John Travolta and Uma Thurman will be released later this year. In addition, “Doom”, a game-to-movie adaptation of the popular PC game in the mid-1990’s, is set to be released later this year as well with Rock playing the lead role as The Sarge.
The Rock is scheduled to shoot four more movies very soon. Those include “Instant Karma” (a movie about a safecracker who dies & is reincarnated as various animals), “Spy Hunter” (another game-to-movie adaptation that is directed by John Woo – beings filming after WrestleMania 21), “Gridiron Gang” (a movie about a head coach of a prison football team) and a possible lead role in a yet to be titled film about the cartoon character Johnny Bravo.
