Dwayne Johnson is set to take on giant monsters in action adventure The Monster Hunter's Survival Guide.

The pro wrestler, known as The Rock, will star in the big-screen adaptation of John Paul Russ' comic book miniseries, reported Deadline.

A director and screenwriter has yet to be found, but X-Men: First Class producer Simon Kinberg is to produce the movie, which is described as a "comprehensive guide" to hunt a variety of creatures including the undead, unnatural beasts and fantasy creatures.

Dwayne - who helped drive the cast of Fast Five to box office victory and revived his Rock persona in the wrestling ring to host WrestleMania XXVII - is currently working on GI Joe 2: Retaliation.

His upcoming films include family-friendly adventure Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, followed by action thriller Snitch with Susan Sarandon and is attached to play Goliath in a retelling of the David and Goliath story, titled Goliath.
