As two of the biggest actors in Hollywood right now, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Will Smith are ruling the industry. Dwayne Johnson transitioned into Hollywood quite successfully after departing the pro wrestling industry and made enormous sums of money thanks to his action-packed films.

Smith, on the other hand, with his 1996 film Independence Day, which at the time had the second-highest box office earnings in history, propelled himself to the top of Hollywood’s list.

Even though the two Hollywood megastars have completed two decades in the film industry, they haven’t worked together on a single film yet.

In 2012, The Rock asserted that he and Will Smith had discussed doing a movie together. However, ten years have passed, and they haven’t shared the screen yet. Additionally, it doesn’t seem likely that they will begin working together anytime soon.

In case you missed it, Smith was questioned about collaborating on a film with ‘The Great One’ in an episode of Actually Me on GQ. He replied, “That’s my question. He’s avoiding me. I might have to do an old-school SmackDown, walk up on him. I don’t know. I would love to work with The Rock. He is a beast.”

If Johnson and Smith ever get their wish and work together, their on-screen chemistry would undoubtedly be among the finest of all time. A film starring the duo would be extremely successful and entertaining to the fans.
