Wrestler turned actor Dwayne Johnson was once linked to the lead role in the big screen adaptation of the comic book character Lobo. Dwayne has now confirmed that there was talk of a Lobo movie being made and that he was going to star in the film.
Johnson was chatting to MTV News, when he briefly touched on the fact that he was attached to the project, but it did not last long. "It was for a minute, but then it kind of just went away as things happen in Hollywood. For a minute, [I] was interested in it, and then it went away."
Dwayne then went on to admit that he was thoroughly looking forward to shooting the Hercules movie later this year, "We have some movies getting ready to come out, but the next shoot, I'm really excited about, a passion project I've had now on my mind ever since I got into Hollywood, over 15 years now, 'Hercules.' I can't wait. We're going to shoot that in Croatia and Budapest. I've been preparing for this role now for the good part of a year," he added.
While Hercules is the next movie that Dwayne Johnson will be shooting, the next film that we can see him starring in is Snitch, which also stars Jon Bernthal and Susan Sarandon and is released on February 22 in the US and April 6 in the UK. Later in the year we will get to see Dwayne Johnson starring in Fast and Furious 6, which opens on May 24 in both the US and the UK.
