Dwayne Johnson AKA The Rock to Star in Charley Pride Biopic
Mon, 02 May 2011 09:45:08
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.
