Dwayne Johnson Wants In On Star Wars, Talks Possible Fast And Furious Spin-Off
Your character in Snitch is overwhelmed when he is in gunfire and this one is more comfortable when he is under fire. What is your take on guns in action movies in general?
I think thereís a place for them. I donít believe in censorship. I believe everyone is inspired by their own artistic creations. They make what they want to make for a variety of different reasons. Whether youíre a writer or an actor or a producer or working on Broadway. I believe that everyone should make what they want to make, and itís up to the audience if they want to see it. Often times in action movies there are guns and tanks and weapons. And thereís rounds, and they go off.
Youíve said that there could be a Luke Hobbs spin-off on the way from Fast and the Furious. How does that work if the movie is about the ensemble?
I donít know. I think thatís one way to look at it. But I think, too, if youíre looking to expand and be creative I think it could possibly work. Weíve talked about that, by the way. Weíve talked about spinning that character off. Thatís a character that people have really enjoyed seeing. I think it could work. I think though too, letís wait and see how Fast Six does. It looks as though a lot of people are going to like it. I was excited to make it. With Luke Hobbs it feels like there might be one more. Thereís one more Butch and Sundance journey to go on with Luke and Dom.
What happened to Lobo?
It kind of came and went. It came Ė I thought it was interesting Ė and then it kind of went away?
Is that kind of the same with Shazam?
Shazam was more interesting. And really interesting to me. I would have loved that, especially the idea of playing Black Adam. Again, though, studios start to look at other properties and other superhero properties, what makes sense and what doesnít, but Iíll be a superhero down the line.
