Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays the role of an Interpol Agent

Although not much is known about the plot, the premise involves an Interpol agent working to track down the members of an audacious heist. He employs the help of two rival criminals to do so. The ‘World’s Greatest Art Thief’ will be played by Gal Gadot. Ryan Reynolds will play the role of ‘The World’s Greatest Con-man’ which leaves Dwayne Johnson as the Interpol agent. 

That role describes Dwayne Johnson as the most famous tracker in the world. The film is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, a man that has collaborated with The Rock twice in the past, namely in Central Intelligence (2016) and Skyscraper (2018).

Fans still await the release of the official trailer but have not missed out on much action. WWE legend Batista has also been making leaps and bounds in the film industry. He recently starred in the movie ‘Army of the Dead’ directed by Zack Snyder which is set to break the all-time viewership record of Netflix. 

Dave Bautista is set to move on to higher roles now and we hope to see him collaborating with The Rock sometime in the near future. Until then, we await the release of Red Notice, which is set to make records of its own.
