Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is needs some big-time help for one of his next movies and that help is coming from... Susan Sarandon?
Currently shooting G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation, THR reports that one of Johnson's next projects is the action thriller Snitch, which sees the former wrestler-turned-action star play a suburban father who goes undercover to help capture a drug dealer when his teenage son is given a long prison sentence. Sarandon will play an ambitious U.S. attorney who thinks a drug bust will help her political ambitions.
Written and directed by Ric Roman Waugh (Felon), Snitch was originally written by Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road), until Waugh became attached and rewrote the script, and is based on a Frontline documentary. No word on when Snitch will start shooting — oddly, no one is talking. More casting news >> Posted 09.28.11 by Ryan
