Speculation is the name of the game ever since Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson posted a picture on Instagram that seems to confirm he will be in a Doc Savage film directed by Shane Black. In the caption of his Instagram picture, he mentions reading a script on his iPad by Shane Black for 2017. In the past, Black has mentioned he’s interested in making a Doc Savage film with The Rock. In an interview earlier this year with Thrillist, Black said “I would very much like to do Doc with a fellow named Dwayne Johnson if we can make that work. I made a decision that Dwayne is the guy. It’s on the back burner while he’s busy.” So can we assume Dwayne’s schedule is open now and we might see this actually happen soon?
Finding our anchor. When I’m shooting on location I always need a space where I can work and keep building the enterprise. Here in Georgia this has been my space for months now. Keepin’ it country. Every film, TV show, partnership and project we develop gets handled from here. When I feel good about it, it goes in the pile to the left that clearly reflects my OCD. When I’m still making adjustments, it stays on the pile on the right. All contracts that need signing remain in the middle. On the iPad I’m reading an outline for a cool movie I’ll make in 2017 (with director Shane Black) and when I get tired and need a lil’ pick me up, the shaker cup holds a special shot of energy – Elk piss. The more complicated our lives get, the more we need simple spaces like this to anchor us. In simplistic terms, find your work space and anchor to help you keep your shit together. #AndDontTryDrinkingElkPiss #IWasKidding #ItsLionBlood ????⚓️
Doc Savage is an adventurer originally appearing in American pulp magazines beginning in the 1930s. Since then, he’s also been featured in comics and even a film in 1975. Check out the trailer below:
Shane Black wrote a script for a Doc Savage film in 2009 but actually getting the film made has seemed to prove difficult. Fingers crossed it actually happens this time.
