Asked on Twitter about rumours of the former wrestler working on a Lobo movie, with Dwayne Johnson himself in the title role as the ashen-faced, immortal alien mercenary from the DC Comics, Johnson saw no harm in answering…

“Rumours of me possibly playing LOBO are true. Joel Silver and Brad Peyton working on it now. That could be fun.. #RockTalk”

Joel Silver is best known as the producer of all sorts of big-name blockbusters, including The Matrix and the Sherlock Holmes movies, while Brad Peyton is the director of the Rock’s most recent movie outing, which I’m sure everyone saw – Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.

Good news, eh? #RockTalk
