Dwayne Johnson, ‘The Rock’ has been reportedly confirmed to star in a biopic movie, playing the character of Country Singer Charley Pride.

Dwayne Johnson, the WWE star has been reportedly confirmed to play the character of country singer Charley Pride in the upcoming biopic movie. It seems that, ‘The Rock’ is concentrating on acting career, leaving his wrestling days.

Dwayne Johnson has appeared in the recent movie, ‘Fast Five’ of ‘The Fast and The Furious’ franchise with Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. He played the character of federal agent Luke Hobbs, who has been assigned to trace Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker). He has also worked in the movies such as ‘The Tooth Fairy’ and ‘The Game Plan’.

According to the reports, the news of casting Dwayne Johnson as Charley Pride was announced by Pride himself. The reports said that, Johnson has replaced Terrence Howard to play the role of Pride, as Terrence was chosen first, to play the role. Craig Brewer, the director of ‘Hustle and Flow’ was also signed to direct the movie. Charley Pride is an inductee of Hall of Fame of Country Music, who has got more than 36 No. 1 singles, which were sold over 70 million records.

Pride said that, there is no doubt in saying that, Terrence is an academic actor, but Dwayne has a force on screen. Dwayne came down to Dallas to discuss about the project and once he left after discussion, Pride felt, as if he had met his old friend. It has not been decided yet, which part of the life of Pride would be focused and would be filming.
