The Rock Being Courted for THE JANSON DIRECTIVE

By Amirose Eisenbach July 10, 2014

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson appears to be in almost everything these days. Anchoring huge franchises like "Fast and Furious", "G.I. Joe" and soon the "Hercules" reboot out later this month, he is certainly an actor in high demand. Now comes word of his next potential high-octane project.

Universal is reportedly courting him to star in the new Robert Ludlum adaptation "The Janson Directive". The story follows a covert ops agent who gets sick of hired-gun killing and starts a private security firm. He partners with a sharpshooter and the two aim to help out those in need. There are typically a lot of twists and turns in Ludlum's novels, so something is bound to go horribly wrong.

This could be a potential new franchise in the vein of "Bourne" or "Jack Reacher". The Rock certainly has the charisma and physicality and with roles as seen in "Snitch", he's proving he is acquiring the acting chops as well.
