wrestling and movie fans - add yet another production
shoot to The Rock's commitments in First Quarter 2013.
Rock noted Sunday during a "Rock Talk" Twitter
Q&A that filming begins in February on his new
TNT show, "The Hero."
wanted to create @TheHeroTNT to entertain millions
& give people a shot at personal greatness. We
shoot in FEB!" Rock tweeted. "My schedule
is hellacious & my goals I've chosen to achieve
are HARD. So, my daily focus on training is my anchor."
for the first month of 2013, Rock reinforced that
he's anticipating facing C.M. Punk, who is currently
injured, for the WWE Title at the Royal Rumble.
can't wait to face @CMPunk for the @WWE Championship
at Royal Rumble. Been training for months for this
moment," Rock tweeted.
favorite artist: Sam Cooke is my fav artist.
#Soul I love ALL genres of music from hip hop
to orchestral to traditional country..
he would post for Playgirl: Id pose for
Playgirl, but there just aint enough pages to
showcase me baby! << TONS of cheese on that
upcoming movies: Im excited for all my 2013
movies: SNITCH, GI JOE, PAIN & GAIN & FAST
6. Tons of hard work & eager for you to see
FAST 6 is gonna be killer. Stakes are higher, cars
are cooler and Im tougher than a 2 dollar steak well
done. Michael Bays PAIN & GAIN is a very
unique & cool movie. The most challenging role
Ive ever played. April 2013.
new show on TNT, The Hero: I wanted to create
@TheHeroTNT to entertain millions & give people
a shot at personal greatness. We shoot in FEB!
favorite co-star: In Hollywood, Ive been
lucky to work w/ so many talented & beautiful
leading ladies, but #JulieAndrewsIsQueen
plans: As an actor, producer or even in @WWE
the goal is to be a positive force & entertain
the world. And keep growin!
addition to filming new movies and squeezing in WWE
appearances to hype the Rumble and WrestleMania 29,
Rock will also be promoting movies scheduled for theatrical
Rock comments on heat with CM Punk...
quizzed on Twitter if he has heat with Punk - Rock
replied, "Of course not my friend. I love Phillip
& he loves me."
WWE announcer Jim Ross blogs on The Rock and CM Punk...
will close the Royal Rumble: "Already getting
questions about what attraction will close the show
at WWE Royal Rumble, @CMPunk vs. @TheRock or the Rumble
match? I haven't a clue nor do I care as either choice
would be fine with me but if I had to guess I'd guess
it would be the WWE Title bout. Again, don't know
and don't care as I will be watching one of my favorite
PPV events of the year.
guess is that Punk will push Rock inside the ring
from bell to bell unlike Rock has been pushed since,
arguably, the @steveaustinBSR days. That's not taking
any thing away from @JohnCena who wrestles at a different
pace that Austin did or Punk likes to. How does even
an athlete as gifted as @TheRock prepare for what
awaits inside the 20 foot ring? Cardio is great but
nothing replicates wrestling long matches better than
wrestling long matches."
Mark Wahlberg and The Rock pump iron for Michael Bay's
'Pain & Gain'...
on a 1999 Miami New Times story, Pain & Gain is
an action comedy that follows a pair of bodybuilders
who turn to extortion, kidnapping, and murder. The
film has long been the Transformers directors
passion project. In 2007, Bay told media that he became
attached to the movie because he loved the characters,
promising there wouldnt be too many explosions.
Its like a mixture of Fargo and Pulp Fiction
and its all true, he said. And theyre
all knuckleheads. Its a fun character piece.
No action. One car crash. The movie tag-line
- "Their American Dream is Bigger than yours".

2013 WWE Studios movie releases; Wrestling and movie
connection; Dwayne Johnson thoughts...
Studios has released the full line-up of their 2013
movie releases, some of which will be theatrical releases
and others will be straight-to-DVD.
the last few years of WWE Studios flicks are anything
to go by, it will be a mixed bag, but the good news
is that there should be one or two gems and pleasant
surprises in there... not just B and C grade stuff.
Wrestling fans... you got to wonder what it would
take for 'The Rock' to sign up to Vince McMahon's
WWE Studios - even for 1 or 2 films. Maybe the answer
is more money than McMahon is currently willing to
offer 'The Great One'. Speaking of The Rock, be sure
to check out 'The Hero' when it finally hits television.
Time will tell if it finally makes it to Rupert Murdoch
influenced Foxtel, but it stands to reason if the
public let Foxtel know they want more of 'The Rock',
it may help achieve the positive result that fans
are looking for.
following is the 2013 WWE Studios movie schedule:
"No One Lives" (Jan. 2013): WWE star in
supporting role is Brodus Clay. - "Dead Man Down":
WWE star in supporting role is Wade Barrett. - "Marine
3: Homefront": WWE star in the leading role is
The Miz. - "12 Rounds 2: Reloaded": WWE
star in the leading role is Randy Orton. - "The
Hive": WWE star in a supporting role is David
Otunga, plus Halle Berry in a leading role. - "Leprechaun:
Origins": WWE star in the leading role is Hornswoggle.

Do and the Gang go to WrestleMania."
