Ya es oficial: Dwayne Johnson va a protagonizar la adaptación al cine de 'Doc Savage' que prepara Sony Pictures. La estrella reveló hace un par de semanas que tenía entre manos un proyecto para 2017 con Shane Black y ahora ha desvelado el título en una nueva publicación en su cuenta de Instagram, donde está anunciando todos sus proyectos.

De momento no hay fechas concretas para el rodaje ni el estreno. Black acaba de estrenar en Estados Unidos su última comedia, 'Dos buenos tipos' ('The Nice Guys') —a España llega el 10 de junio—, y está preparando el rodaje de 'The Predator'; cuando termine su trabajo con esa secuela se ocupará de dirigir 'Doc Savage', cuyo guion también ha escrito en colaboración con Anthony Bagarozzi y Charles Mondry.

It's OFFICIAL: For all comic book fans you already know the world's first superhero (pre-dating Superman) is the "Man of Bronze" himself Clark "Doc" Savage. Want to thank my bud director/writer Shane Black and his writing team Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry for flying in from LA and sitting with me and our @sevenbucksprod's producer @hhgarcia41 on this Memorial Day weekend to chop up creative and break story on this very cool project. Comic book fans around the world know that the cool thing about "Doc" Savage is that he's the inspiration for Superman. First name Clark, called "Man of Bronze", retreats to his "Fortress of Solitude" in the Arctic etc etc. Doc was physically and mentally trained from birth by his father and a team of scientists to become the perfect human specimen with a genius level intellect. His heightened senses are beyond comprehension. He can even identify a women's perfume from half a mile away. He is literally the master of everything. But here's the #1 reason I'm excited to become Doc Savage.. HE'S A F*CKING HILARIOUS WEIRDO! Confidently, yet innocently he has zero social graces whatsoever due to his upbringing so every interaction he has with someone is direct, odd, often uncomfortable and amazingly hilarious. After speaking for hours w/ Shane Black I can see why the creator of Superman took only the best parts of Doc Savage and leaving the "weirdo" part behind. But to us, it's that "weirdo" part that makes Clark "Doc" Savage dope! Can't wait to sink my teeth into this one of a kind character. #ItsOfficial #WorldsFirstSuperhero #GeniusIntellect #PhysicalSpecimen #FnLoveableWeirdo #ManOfBronze #DocSavage

Como señala Dwyane Johnson, este personaje fue una fuente de inspiración para crear a Superman. Lester Dent es el autor del original Clark "Doc" Savage, muy popular en los años 30 y 40, protagonizó novelas "pulp", cómics y seriales radiofónicos. Cabe señalar que ya dio origen a una película en 1975, 'Doc Savage, el hombre de bronce' ('Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze'), dirigida por Michael Anderson.

La historia gira en torno a las aventuras de un súper-hombre, increíblemente listo y fuerte, científico, inventor y explorador. Lo que me llama más la atención es que "La Roca" destaque la parte "rara" de Savage como el aspecto que le ha conquistado, a ver qué hacen. Con Shane Black al mando, esto puede ser MUY divertido.

EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: #HOBBS #F8 When you strip a man of all he has. All that's important to him. You force him to return to his roots.. and sometimes that's a very dangerous and twisted place. If I was going to return for another FAST & FURIOUS I wanted to come in and disrupt the franchise in a cool way that got fans fired up and their blood pumping to see a new version of Hobbs and his "Daddy's gotta go to work" mentality and set the table in a cool way for where the character goes in the future. Maybe it's a spinoff movie. Maybe it's more #FF movies. Or hell maybe Hobbs just gets on his motorcycle and rides off into the sunset never to be seen again. Either way, I've had a solid first week of shooting, good to be back with the ohana, good to work again w/ my bud and director F. Gary Gray and our home studio of UNIVERSAL, as always have been the best partners to me and my #SevenBucksProds team. Most importantly... you guys around the world will really dig this new version of the role, 'cause as we always say, disrupters dent the universe. #Hobbs #TwistedRoots #1Disrupter #1Savage #F8

Por otro lado, Johnson acaba de sumar otra franquicia a su carrera. Tras terminar el rodaje de 'Baywatch' se embarcó en 'Fast 8' y tiene 'Jumanji', 'Rampage', 'Shazam!' y esta 'Doc Savage' entre sus próximos proyectos. En teoría, sigue implicado en la saga de 'G.I. Joe' pero se cree que Hasbro y Paramount están planificando un reboot. Es una lástima que Bryan Singer no le fichara para encarnar a Apocalipsis, tiene el físico perfecto para el papel, ¿no crees?
