Dwayne Johnson protagonizará SKYSCRAPER

Durante la tarde de hoy el actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Central Intelligence, The Fate of the Furious) anunció vía su cuenta de Instagram, que protagonizará el filme Skyscraper para los estudios Universal Pictures y Legendary Pictures. El actor reveló la premisa del mismo y su fecha de estreno: 13 de julio de 2018.

Johnson interpretará a Will Ford, un veterano de guerra discapacitado y ex líder del equipo de rescate de rehenes del FBI, que ahora evalúa la seguridad de rascacielos alrededor del mundo. Durante una asignación en China, Ford encuentra el edificio más alto y más seguro del mundo, de repente ardiendo en llamas y siendo culpado por ello. Ahora un fugitivo, Ford debe encontrar a los responsables, aclarar su nombre y de alguna manera rescatar a su familia que se encuentra atrapada dentro del edificio, por encima de la linea del fuego. 

Johnson añadió en su post que el filme es un homenaje a todos veteranos discapacitados que ha conocido a lo largo de su carrera y también para toda aquella persona que a diario hace lo necesario para proteger y cuidar de su familia.

BREAKING: Grateful to share this big news. Universal Studios and @Legendary Pictures have declared JULY 13th 2018 SKYSCRAPER weekend. Massive scale of a movie we've been developing for almost two years and we start shooting this August – in CHINA. Our script, written and to be directed by Rawson Thurber, focuses on the world's largest skyscraper – that's on fire. A towering inferno almost a mile into the sky and my wife and kids are trapped on the top floor. My character is a disabled US War Vet and former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader. This character is inspired by the thousands of disabled US veterans and war heroes I've had the honor of shaking hands with over the years. This character is also an homage to the every day man and woman who, despite all odds, will dig deep and do everything possible to protect and save their family. Research for this film has been a real education for me (and that's saying a lot considering my horrible freshman year GPA) from meeting with the world's top skyscraper architects to spending amazing time with our US combat and disabled vets. Good thing I'm not afraid of heights. But at 4,000ft it's a different story. Let's get to work. #CHINA #SevenBucksProds #FlynnPicturesCo #Zhao #SKYSCRAPER JULY 13th 2018
