The Rock Wants To Take Down The Expendables And Other Things Learned From His AMA
Who would have thought back in 2001 that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson would not only defy the fate of most wrestlers turned actors, but he'd turn out to one of the biggest franchise players ever! The man who has been dubbed as "franchise Viagra" brought both the Fast And Furious and G.I. Joe franchises new life once he stepped into their ring. Paramount and MGM, knowing full well to strike while the iron is hot, are gambling on Johnson's star power with this weekend's Hercules, and as such it was as good a time as any for his rockiness to address his loyal legion of fans. Here now are five important facts we learned about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson during his insightful AMA.
The Rock Would Love To Kick Some Expendable AssOne of the most popular posts of the day was an answer that Dwayne Johnson had given to a fan that tip toed around asking if he'd be interested in starring in an Expendables flick. However, there are only so many places your mind can go to when a fan is asking if you'd want to work with Sylvester Stallone and Terry Crews, so naturally Mr. Johnson caught on in a heartbeat. He was not only extremely upfront about his enthusiasm, but he even gave screenwriters a way to write him in by stating the following:
I don't want to be on their team and be buddies with them. Fuck that noise. I want to hunt every single one of them down and tell them to "send your soul to heaven cause your ass is mine."
If there was ever a case as to why The Expendables 4 should be greenlit immediately, The Rock's piss and vinegar response cements it into the ground. Of course, the box office returns on The Expendables 3 will have more than a hand in how that argument is decided, but if Sylvester Stallone is no longer interested and Pierce Brosnan is, you can begin to see how Dwayne Johnson hunting down Barney and his crew would make for a perfect hinge point towards a new trilogy of badass. Though, for the record, he'd keep Terry Crews alive as his de facto "pec popping contest" rival, and he also saved a spot for Rhonda Rousey as his "training partner."
