Alpha Squad Seven

A man who doesn’t believe in much downtime between movie projects is The Rock himself, Mr Dwayne Johnson. Already one of the stars of the fourth biggest film of all time, Fast & Furious 7, he’s got his second film of the summer, San Andreas, incoming next at the end of this month.

After that? He’s lending his voice to Disney’s Moana, and he’s one of the stars of summer 2016 comedy Central Intelligence (alongside Kevin Hart). He’s expected back for Fast & Furious 8 as well, which will be going before the cameras next year.

And now you can add another film to his schedule. He’s signing up to star in a new mix of sci-fi, action and comedy, in the shape of Alpha Squad Seven. It’s described as a space-set movie, albeit one whose plot is being kept under wraps at the moment. Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer have pitched the movie, and Johnson will also serve as one of its producers. Already, there are plans for a potential Alpha Squad Seven franchise if it goes well.
