The former wrestler, known as The Rock, is in talks to star in the action thriller, to be written and directed by Ric Roman Waugh, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on a documentary, the film, which is eyeing a June start, would centre on a father who goes undercover into the drug dealing world when his teenage son is sentenced to 30 years under mandatory minimum drug laws.

Dwayne, who switches between family-friendly movies and action blockbusters, will next be seen in Faster alongside Billy Bob Thornton, before Fast Five, the fifth film in the Fast And Furious franchise, with Vin Diesel and Paul Walker.
