Re: Why doesn't The Rock do movies with WWE studios and still wrestle part time?
Rock's movies are just like WWE Studios movies, they're all mindless explosion-filled action movies. The big difference is the Rock's movies are always blockbusters with huge budgets that do big money on the opening weekend.
Dead Man Down looks like it will be a damn good movie so hopefully the trend continues for WWE Studios. They seriously need to build up their credibility as a film studio and it looks like they're going in the right direction now.
They've finally realized that putting a wrestler in the title role got them absolutely no where but millions of dollars in the red. Now they just throw them a bone with little cameo roles that only wrestling fans will even notice them there.
I'm sure Colin Farrell and Halle Berry aren't doing these films for chump change. I'll be interested to know what the budget on these films are.
