Considering the dilapidated state of the game's story, you'd imagine not that many actors (Ice-T aside) would fancy starring in a movie based on Call of Duty: Black Ops.
So it's a shame to see Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson do just that.
I like The Rock! Not as a wrestler, mind, as I haven't invested anything in that form of entertainment since the 1980s, but as an actor. Laugh if you want, but The Rundown/Welcome to the Jungle ("That's a lotta cows!") is one of the best movies of the past ten years that nobody ever saw.
Anyway. Speaking with MTV, Johnson looked back on his experiences filming Doom, one of the most disappointing gaming adaptations ever filmed. "I thought we had an opportunity with DOOM. Didn't work out the way we wanted it to, creatively. But yeah, if the right opportunity came along and the script is good, sure."
So what would that dream project be when it comes to video games and movies? "'[Call of Duty] Black Ops,' that'd be bad ass. Let's make it happen, let's do it," he told the movie news site. "That and 'Black Swan 2.'"
Don't do it, Dwayne! Nobody wants to see a movie where the lead actor gets captured 100 times and runs around the world talking to himself.
Unless it was a comedy. Called "Shoot The Hinges".
