Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his production company, Seven Bucks Productions, will produce the cinematic treatment of It Takes Two from Hazelight Studios.
This news comes from Variety, which reports that not only is Johnson producing the film, but it’s being developed by Amazon, apparently slated for an Amazon Prime Video release (or perhaps a theatrical premiere, which Amazon has done for some of its films in the past). Johnson will produce the film for Seven Bucks Production, alongside Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia, and dj2 Entertainment will also help produce it.
Variety reports that his sources say Johnson could also star in the film, but that’s obviously not official yet. As expected, this film adaptation of 2021’s It Takes Two, which won Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2021 in December, will follow main characters May and Cody who are turned into dolls by their daughter in the middle of a a divorce proceeding. May and Cody must work together to explore fantasized areas of their home in order to find their bodies while dealing with the challenges of their relationship.
