There is no bigger star on earth right now than Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. His new movie with Kevin Hart, Central Intelligence, proved that it doesn't have to be a sequel or comic book movie to be a success - opening strong at the box office.
Ditto last years San Andreas.
With Johnson highly in-demand, his next shoot is expected to be Doc Savage with Shane Black. This is before the next Fast and Furious arrives next year and the next season of Ballers premieres. He also has The Baywatch Movie next summer.
While he's being sought for hot property Son of Shaolin, if Johnson wants a franchise Universal are ready to give him one - The Wolf Man.
Previously Benicio Del Toro starred in a fun, but messy affair in 2010; the vision of pioneering music video director Mark Romanek clashing with the studio and the more accessible Joe Johnston was brought on board at late notice.
Universal are hoping to create a new cinematic universe here, with The Mummy starring Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe close to production.
