Fancy shmancy hotel suite.
Landed in the ATL and putting finally touches on scripts for tomorrow’s big #JUMANJI promo shoot. We have some great partners for this campaign and I’m excited to get to work.
Psst..just between us my laptop is playing something dirty, fun and wildly inappropriate because I’m crazy. Actually, it’s playing a documentary about the Civil War on Netflix.
Artistic photo cred goes to one of my aces @jesszobler
Come fly with me.
THANK YOU to our incredibly hard working and tireless #SkyscraperMovie film crew who lay their talents on the line on a daily/nightly basis to make something great for the people.
And thank you to our chief - Academy Award winning, Robert Elswit (Director of Photography) for not only telling our movie’s story thru mood and tone with incredible lighting, but also setting our set’s energy with ol’ Blue Eyes.
Especially at 430am when fatigue hits us all.
Helluva work week.
I’m a lucky SOB to have such a talented and hungry team around me. #SkyscraperMovie#EndOfAVeryLongNight#SinatraTime
Friday. 230am. Good people. Hard work.
Lining up the shots for the rest of the night with my #SkyscraperMovie director, Rawson Thurber.
Proud of this dude.
Fresh out of USC Film School, he breaks into Hollywood with a hit movie that he wrote and directed, called, DODGEBALL.
He follows that up with another hit movie, WE ARE THE MILLERS.
He then follows that up with another hit movie, CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE with me and my much bigger twin @kevinhart4real.
Refusing to be pigeonholed as a “comedy director”, he goes away for six months and writes a script that is not only reflective of who he is as a man, husband and new father, but also reflective of the kinds of big tent pole movies that have always inspired him from STAR WARS to RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARC.
The script becomes one of Hollywood’s hottest scripts of 2016 causing a huge bidding war (true story) between every studio. The studios who won that war were Legendary Studios and Universal Studios.
The name of the script... SKYSCRAPER.
This guy has the potential to go down as one of the best true writer/directors ever.
Too bad he’s an asshole.
Kidding, he’s family to me and literally one of the nicest humans I’ve ever known.
Eh he’s still an asshole. #OnSet#RawsonThurber#SkyscraperMovie
It’s official: The Rock Day.
Such a cool (and bad ass) honor to have the Mayor of Vancouver, Gregor Robertson, present this proclamation to me last night on set.
I’m a grateful man to be in the business of making big movies and entertainment that serve multiple purposes around the world.
One of those critical purposes is providing jobs for thousands of hard working people, local businesses and economies every time we bring a production to town.
Jobs and opportunities for people. And free waffles for me.
Thank you Mayor and your staff for being so gracious and welcoming to myself and our entire production crew to your city.
And thank you for this honor and thanks for being such a cool guy. Vancouver will always hold a special place in my DNA. Next time drinks on me.. #ItsOfficial#TheRockProc#October19th#Vancouver#TheRockDay
tbt. Asia world press tour.
I love how serious my press friend got when she thought I wasn’t giving the ukulele back . Press tours are hard work for everyone involved - journalists, studios, teams etc, so I always try to keep my energy up, have fun and keep it light.
Get ready Asia - for our upcoming RAMPAGE and SKYSCRAPER 2018 press tours, I’m coming back.
Get the guitar and tequila ready... and next time I’m keeping both.
345am. Man on the run.
Day 47 of 64 shooting our action thriller #SkyscraperMovie.
Shot big sequences tonight requiring lots of moving parts. THANK YOU to the hundreds of extras putting in the hard work.
Fear and terror are never fun emotions to play with - especially for 10hrs straight.
Thanks again and great work.
And I apologize in advance for all the extras I push and shove down the rest of the week shooting these scenes as I’m on the run. Please buy yourselves a bottle of your favorite and most expensive alcohol and send the bill to Universal Studios. #OnSet#OnTheRun#HongKong#SkyscraperMovie
