Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been a busy guy. He’s starred in family films like “Journey 2 The Mysterious Island”. He’s been in “Fast Five”, the upcoming “Fast and Furious 6” and maybe his own spin off film as Luke Hobbs. He’s in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”. Noticing a trend? He’s taken a lot of franchises and a lot of them have done well after he’s joined. In an interview with Cinema Blend, Johnson shared which franchise he’d like to join, if possible. Here’s his answer:

“Oh easily. Star Wars. And that’s not to say that they need it. Obviously they’re doing very well. And J.J. [Abrams] is just gonna crush it. I’m so excited. There’s a guy, by the way, who’s not just a brilliant director, but honors and respects mythology. You’ve seen that with Star Trek and you’re going to see that with Star Wars. I’m very excited about that.”

Abrams is of course busy preparing for the release of “Star Trek Into Darkness” starring Chris Pine and more. But it could be interesting to see Johnson in some alien makeup or perhaps as a bounty hunter in the new films. I’ve, surprisingly, grown to enjoy a lot of Johnson’s movies, even the recent “Snitch”.
