Dwayne Johnson To Deliver Boost Unit

The day might come when Dwayne Johnson is announcing so many projects or updates, he has his own news channel (the Rock Rolling News Service?) For now though, he’s just sticking to, say, one a day, and is now touting a police drama called Boost Unit according to Empire.

Sounding a little like it wants to be the Fast & Furious of the small screen, Boost Unit will see a notorious getaway driver with a hidden past recruited to the Los Angeles Police Department’s Auto Theft Task Force. “We’re bringing to life the high stakes street pursuits and grueling work of this very specialized elite task force and we’re excited to partner with Imperative Entertainment to combine an epic mix of gripping action and sophisticated storytelling,” says Johnson. “I've had a lot of bad ass fun in the Fast & Furious franchise and this show will capture that kind of intense and entertaining action based off of the real life individuals who make up one of the most bad ass (and underground) street units of the LAPD.”

There’s no casting for the series yet, which is still at an early stage, but the Fox network has ordered an initial script to be written by Jonny Umansky and Zach Hyatt and Heroes creator Tim Kring is aboard to co-produce with Johnson and business partner Dany Garcia. Though Johnson won’t be starring in this one – he’s a little busy working on various movies, HBO show Ballers and spending time on social media chronicling his workout regime – we’d expect him to potential show up for a cameo if the series goes ahead.

He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…

Enter For A Chance To Win Pass To See TULLY on May 1st at 7:00 PM in Dallas.

From Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody – the team behind JUNO and YOUNG ADULT – comes a new grown-up comedy with their signature style of irreverence and insight. Academy Award winner Charlize Theron gives an extraordinary performance in TULLY - the story of a parent stretched to her limit, the bonds of female friendship and how we can embrace the messiness of life. While it might not have been intentional, TULLY completes a trilogy that began with JUNO and YOUNG ADULT. Each features a female protagonist at a different stage of her life, and each film explores how complicated it is to find happiness.
