Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is one of many great actors that stars in Richard Kelly's upcoming film Southland Tales. For those that don't know, Southland Tales is a story about near-future Los Angeles with an action star named Boxer Santos (played by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) whose life intertwines with an enterprising adult film star (played by Sarah Michelle Gellar). The real story and how everything plays out is part of the mystery behind Southland Tales, but given Richard Kelly's incredible imagination, as seen with Donnie Darko, he is very capable of creating a fantastic film.
/FILM had the chance to interview Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson just the other day during promotion for Gridiron Gang, and posted an exclusive discussion with him about Southland Tales. Johnson mentioned a bit about the film's poor response at Cannes last year and that both his and Kelly's excitement increased after the very warm reception it received at Comic-Con in July. The Rock seems like a very interesting person in real-life and has quite a bit of passion towards the projects he works on. Head right over to /FILM now to check it out - it's a very good read!
