RAMPAGE

DWAYNE JOHNSON (Davis Okoye / Executive Producer), with film revenues exceeding $3 billion worldwide, has solidified himself as a global box-office powerhouse in both film and television.

Always adding to his busy schedule, Johnson shows no sign of slowing down. In 2017, he starred in "Baywatch"; the 8th installment of the successful "Fast and Furious" franchise, "The Fate of the Furious"; and "Jumanji," alongside Kevin Hart and Jack Black. In 2018, he can be seen in the fourth season of the HBO show "Ballers," directed by Peter Berg, as an ex-football star turned money manager, navigating life on the other side of the field. Johnson recently wrapped filming "Skyscraper," set to release July 13, 2018. Also on his upcoming slate, he is set to star in Disney's "Jungle Cruise," based on its hit theme park ride where a small riverboat takes a group of travelers on a journey filled with dangerous animals and reptiles.

Adding to a slew of tent-pole films, Johnson recently starred in the highest grossing live action comedy, "Central Intelligence," opposite Kevin Hart, and lent his voice to the widely successful animated film "Moana." Johnson also starred in the 2015 summer blockbuster "San Andreas."

In addition, Johnson's production company, Seven Bucks Productions, recently teamed up with SPIKE TV to produce a monumental holiday event, "Rock the Troop," a music and entertainment experience created to honor, inspire and captivate the brave men and women of America's Armed Services. This compelling and modern tribute emanated from the historical Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam and brought together A-list headliners from the worlds of music, comedy, and film. Seven Bucks also released a youth prison documentary, "A Rock and a Hard Place," for HBO which became the network's #1 watched standalone special.

Among Johnson's recent film credits are: "Furious 7," reprising his role as Agent Hobbs, alongside Vin Diesel; "Hercules," directed by Brett Ratner, where Johnson took on the title role; the dramatic thriller "Snitch," about a father who goes undercover for the DEA to free his imprisoned son' the comic book action-adventure "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," as well as the second installment of the franchise, opposite Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum; the dramatic independent film "Empire State." with Liam Hemsworth and Emma Roberts" "Pain & Gain," alongside Mark Wahlberg; and major roles in "Fast 5" and "Fast and Furious 6," which grossed a combined $1.4 billion globally. Johnson's previous films include "Race to Witch Mountain"; "The Tooth Fairy"; "Planet 51"; "Get Smart"; "The Game Plan"; "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," which grossed over $325 million in 2011; "Be Cool," the sequel to "Get Shorty," alongside John Travolta, Uma Thurman and Vince Vaughn; the 2004 remake "Walking Tall"; and "The Rundown," a critically acclaimed action comedy directed by Peter Berg and co-starring Sean William Scott, Rosario Dawson and Christopher Walken. Johnson was casted by Stephen Sommers in "The Mummy Returns," which grossed more than $400 million worldwide. His character was so well received by Universal executives during dailies that they immediately planned a film based on his character, "The Scorpion King," which broke box office records in 2002 to become the greatest April opening of all time.

Johnson's love of acting and desire to branch out led him to appear on "Saturday Night Live" four times, surprising many with his strength in comedy. He has garnered much critical acclaim and recognition for his range and diverse roles, and has been named Variety's 2017 Second Highest Paid Actor in Hollywood, NAACP's 2016 "Entertainer of the Year," People's "Sexiest Man Alive" in 2016, and USA Today's "2016 Movie Person of the Year," as well as making Time Magazine's 2016 Most Influential People, and The Hollywood Reporter's Annual Power 100 List for 2016. On December 13, 2017, Johnson received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Born in San Francisco and raised in Hawaii, Johnson excelled as a high school All-American and subsequently as a star defensive lineman for the University of Miami Hurricanes, helping lead his team to a National Championship. Upon graduating from the University of Miami, Johnson followed in the footsteps of his WWE Hall of Fame father, Rocky Johnson, and grandfather, High Chief Peter Maivia, by joining the competitive sports entertainment world of the WWE. Within a seven-year period (1996-2003), his intense passion led to an extraordinarily successful career, breaking box office attendance records across the U.S. and setting pay-per-view buy rate records during that period as well. Johnson's creation of "The Rock" became one of the most charismatic and dynamic characters the industry has ever seen. In March 2012, Johnson made a record-breaking return to the WWE where he crushed John Cena at Wrestle Mania XXVIII in Miami.

Johnson penned an autobiography, The Rock Says, which reached #1 on The New York Times Bestseller List shortly after its publication in January 2000. He also created The Rock Foundation in 2006, with a mission to educate, empower and motivate children worldwide through health and physical fitness. A dedicated philanthropist, Johnson is the current National spokesperson for the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Diabetes Aware Campaign. He is also a committed Celebrity Cabinet Member for The American Red Cross and serves as a National Celebrity Wish Ambassador for The Make-A-Wish Foundation. In 2008, the United States Congress and the United States Joint Leadership Commission recognized Johnson with the prestigious Horizon Award, the U.S. Congressional Award given to an individual in the private sector who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and provided opportunities for youth nationwide.
