The Rock to Adapt Upcoming Graphic Novel "Son of Shaolin"

The Rock might just be the busiest man in Hollywood. Not only is he starring in upcoming films "Fast 8," "Baywatch" and "Jumanji," he just lined up his next project. The Rock and Sony will be producing "Son of Shaolin," a forthcoming graphic novel.

Carolina Panther's All-Pro center Ryan Khalil has financed the graphic novel, which will be the basis for the film adaptation, according to Deadline. Jay Longino wrote the graphic novel and will also write the script for the film.

While plot details are very light, the novel and the film will supposedly intertwine Shaolin mythology with modern issues of urban teenagers. So far The Rock is only on the project as an executive producer and not set to star in the film.

The Rock can currently be seen in "Central Intelligence" and in Disney's "Moana" this fall.
