When you think of Dwayne Johnson movies on the horizon you immediately think of Michael Bay's Pain and Gain and the long-awaited G.I. Joe: Retaliation. But he is also starring in a film called Snitch, and the Super Bowl trailer for the film is now available to watch.
Directed by Ric Roman from a script by Justin Haythe, it also stars Susan Sarandon, Benjamin Bratt, and Barry Pepper, and arrives in theaters on February 22.
In the fast-paced action thriller SNITCH, Dwayne Johnson stars as a father whose teenage son is wrongly accused of a drug distribution crime and is looking at a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 10 years. Desperate and determined to rescue his son at all costs, he makes a deal with the U.S. attorney to work as an undercover informant and infiltrate a drug cartel on a dangerous mission -- risking everything, including his family and his own life.
I would much rather see The Rock in actions and thrillers than children's movies. Snitch fits the bill just perfectly for me. Yes he always plays the same character, but it is a badass character I have grown to love.
