Monster Hunter’s Survival Guide to Star a Rock!

Or, you know, THE Rock.

Dwayne Johnson is set to star in The Monster Hunter’s Survival Guide, a film based on the graphic novel miniseries by John Paul Russ. The film will be produced by Simon Kinberg through his company Genre Films.

The series (and the film) is about hunting monsters and surviving the encounter.

You never would have guessed if I hadn’t told you. Admit it.

So far, there is no word on other cast or a director. Kinberg has produced similar titles, such as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (who’s psyched for that one? This girl.) He also produced X-Men: First Class and Jumper.

Johnson has starred in many films, from The Scorpion King to the more recent Fast Five. He’ll also be in the newest installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise (this will be number 6 – for the love of God, please stop) and the G.I. Joe sequel (WHY.) Lately, he’s been back in the wrestling ring as his old persona, The Rock.

Movie Quotes

Once upon a time in China, some believe, around the year one double-aught three, head priest of the White Lotus Clan, Pai Mei, was walking down the road, contemplating whatever it is that a man of Pai Mei's infinite power contemplates - which is another way of saying "who knows?" - when a Shaolin monk appeared, traveling in the opposite direction. As the monk and the priest crossed paths, Pai Mei, in a practically unfathomable display of generosity, gave the monk the slightest of nods. The nod was not returned. Now was it the intention of the Shaolin monk to insult Pai Mei? Or did he just fail to see the generous social gesture? The motives of the monk remain unknown. What is known, are the consequences. The next morning Pai Mei appeared at the Shaolin Temple and demanded of the Temple's head abbot that he offer Pai Mei his neck to repay the insult. The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was inconsolable. So began the massacre of the Shaolin Temple and all sixty of the monks inside at the fists of the White Lotus. And so began the legend of Pai Mei's five-point-palm-exploding-heart technique.
The Bride:
And what, pray tell, is the five-point-palm-exploding-heart technique?
Quite simply, the deadliest blow in all of martial arts. He hits you with his fingertips at five different pressure points on your body. And then he lets you walk away. But after you've taken five steps, your heart explodes inside your body, and you fall to the floor, dead.
