    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will produce and star in a biopic of black country music star Charley Pride! Biopics about musicians often lead to Oscar nominations --see Jamie Foxx in Ray or Joaquin Phoenix in Walk the Line. The Rock has come a long way from his WWE days, hasn't he? He's a bona fide actor nowadays. I'm not sure that portraying Pride will get him Oscar gold or even attention, but you never know!

    The film is currently untitled and is without a release date at press time.

    Would you like to see The Rock as Charley Pride?
