The Rock has just broken the news via his Instagram that he is officially bringing the character Doc Savage to the big screen with his writer/director buddy Shane Black…. Wait what? Shane Black! Holy crap count me in!
How many movies can The Rock possibly be working on? The list is getting ridiculous, Jumanji, Shazam, Fast 8, San Andreas 2, Baywatch Rampage… It goes on and on! When does he sleep?
If you didn’t know, Doc Savage is more like a cross between Batman and Indiana Jones. He has no real super powers, but he was trained from birth by a team of scientists to become the perfect human. He possesses peak human strength and agility, as well as a genius intellect. Doc Savage was created in the 30’s just before the age of Superheroes; his tales were told in Pulp magazines.
I’m not 100% sold on this movie doing well, as I’m concerned the general public will have no idea who Doc Savage is, but having Shane Black in the director’s chair with The Rock at his side will surely gain some interest!
