Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is adding another film to his ever-expanding slate, as the Jumanji star will be producing a biopic on three-time All-American, 2011 NCAA National Champion, two-time ESPY Award winner and a National Wrestling Hall of Fame inductee Anthony Robles titled Unstoppable.
"Words cannot express how honored I am to have my story made into a film," Robles said in a statement. "Because I was born missing my leg, my entire life I've had to deal with people having low expectations of me. When I got into wrestling, most people thought it was impossible for me to become even an average wrestler. I'm hopeful that people who see Unstoppable will walk away believing that you should never let your challenges define you. If you have a goal, go after it with everything you've got. Nothing is impossible."
The film is a joint production between Johnson and Dany Garcia's Seven Bucks Productions, 101 Studios, A Really Good Home Pictures, Coonskin Cap Productions and Gary Lewis.
"Our entire Seven Bucks team is passionate about sharing stories that inspire and resonate on a global scale," Johnson and Garia said in a joint statement. "We've had an eye on Anthony's story for a long time and have been deeply moved by his perseverance that proves nothing is impossible. The powerful themes of redemption and tackling life's obstacles are very familiar to us, we are excited to bring this triumphant underdog story to life."
Its a busy month for Johnson, who will star in an upcoming biopic about MMA fighter and UFC champion Mark Kerr.
As for Unstoppable, no casting information or release date is available at this time.
