but now one of the biggest stars has chimed in on the subject.Dwayne Johnson has confirmed that he will indeed be back to star in the next co-star and decided that it would be best to "create a little space" so that fans could enjoy part seven before getting ready to ingest part eight.“Star Wars,” Marvel comics, DC superheroes, and classic monster tales have all been mined for movie multiplex magic — with awesome auds turning out serious coin for congloms.Now another under-exploited IP may be ready for the silver screen — the song catalog of Simon & Garfunkel.Even beyond returning stars, let's not forget that this is a franchise that has been going bigger and bigger ensemble-wise for years now.Basically, expect a lot more news to come out of this film in the coming months.
The forms - which note that the committee is 'NOT authorized' - were filed by Kenton Tilford of Wheeling, West Virginia, on Sunday.'I'm just a private citizen unaffiliated with Mr Johnson,' he told Daily Mail.com, 'but I've talked with many who believe he can deliver the leadership America needs.'Tilford said he hopes that the project will galvanize potential Johnson supporters - and ultimately get The Rock out to lay the smackdown on the 2020 candidates.
Forget the Fast and the Furious movies - The Rock's next big heist could see him stealing the presidency, if a new committee has its way.
Wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson has previously proposed running for office in 2020 - initially as a joke, then later more seriously, criticizing President Donald Trump for choosing 'noise' over 'poise'.
'While there has been significant discussion of the possibility of The Rock running for President, there is currently no avenue for supporters to channel their energies and get Mr Johnson to notice the groundswell of support he has in the grassroots,' he said.'By starting Run The Rock 2020, I hope to harness that energy and help persuade Mr Johnson that America needs his leadership now.' Tilford, a registered Democrat, said he felt Trump, Clinton and Sanders all lacked the leadership and unifying power needs in these difficult times.'America is badly divided and we have a President who, in my view, is sadly not interested in uniting our country,' he said.
And Johnson, he says, could do the job, pointing to his support for the troops as an example of his unifying qualities.
'There may not be a more broadly beloved celebrity in America today,' he explained.'People from all walks of life and all political persuasions can get behind a candidate like Mr Johnson.' He added that both Barack Obama and Donald Trump prove decades of experience as a politician aren't necessary to do the job.
