Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt are teaming up for new superhero movie Ball and Chain.

The film, which is based on a 1990s comic of the same name, centres around a married couple on the brink of splitting up, only to receive super powers that only function when they work together.

As reported by Deadline, Ball and Chain is written by Emily V Gordon, who was nominated for an Oscar for co-writing 2017 romantic comedy The Big Sick with husband Kumail Nanjiani.

Johnson and Blunt are also producing the film, which is currently being shopped around to various studios, with Netflix looking likely to become its home, although no distribution has been reached yet.


It’s not the first time the actors have worked together, having co-starred in Jungle Cruise, an adventure film based on the Disney theme park ride of the same name.

Originally due for release in 2019, Jungle Cruise was pushed back to 24 July, but because of the coronavirus pandemic, it has now been moved back further to 2021.

The film hit headlines during filming after it was alleged that The Rock had been paid £10m ($13m) more than Blunt to appear in the project.
