Dwayne Johnson lined up to play The Wolfman in horror movie reboot

Universal Pictures are looking to get Johnson on board

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is being reportedly lined up to play the title role in a reboot of classic horror movie ‘The Wolfman’.

ComingSoon.net reports that Universal Pictures are looking to get Johnson on board for a new imagining of the classic horror film, which will form part of the studio’s rebooted Monster series.

Screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski is on writing duties for the movie, but Johnson’s announcement is yet to be confirmed – and a director for the film is yet to be announced.

The report comes as production continues on a reboot of The Mummy, which is touted for release in June 2017.

The film, which stars Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe, is directed by Alex Kurtzman, and will act as the first story from the Monster series.

Other names confirmed to star in the project include Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson and Sofia Boutella.

The Wolfman was previously rebooted in 2010 with Benicio Del Toro in the title role, but was met with largely negative reviews and currently holds a rating of just 34 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
