Dwayne Johnson to Play Football Player Stranded at Sea in "Not Without Hope"

Posted: November 13th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Dwayne Johnson to Play Football Player Stranded at Sea in "Not Without Hope"Submit Comment
Relativity Media has acquired rights to the best-selling memoir "Not Without Hope" by Nick Schuyler, and has attached Dwayne Johnson to play Schuyler, a former football player.

The story follows four friends Schuyler (Johnson) along with NFL players Marquis Cooper and Corey Smith, and Schuyler's best friend, Will Bleakley, a former University of South Florida football player who were on a fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico when their boat capsized, stranding the four men at sea.

In the days that followed, the men fought to survive as they awaited to see if help would come.

"I'm humbled that Relativity was interested in paying tribute to Marquis, Corey and Will, and I was impressed with their vision for the film and how they wanted to honor how these guys lived and loved their families, friends and teammates," said Schuyler.

When Schuyler wrote the book about the incident, the families of the perished football players complained that he was trying to profit off the deaths of their loves ones. The complaining will likely escalate with the announcement of this movie.

I like how the article ruins the film's ending, which basically robs it of any and all tensions now that we know for a fact they all die, which then invites the obvious question: why are they making a film about a few drowned football players? What, they couldn't get rights to the Pat Tillman story or something?

Okay, the don''t all die. One survives, which still robs the film of any dramatic tension now that we know the ending, which means a bunch of roidheads at sea, basically a more literal version of Varsity Blues, had better provide some serious dramatic gravitas, more than we saw in Open Water, otherwise this film won't exactly be another We Are Marshall.

Not before they make a movie about those guys from Lynyrd Skynyrd who blew up in a Georgia forest after they continued to fly around on a knowingly busted engine magneto, which made them think they had more fuel than they did.

Nothing beats Randy rhoads crashing a plane and killing himself and another while trying to basically scare his bandmates by flying to close to the trailer they were sleeping in..

And I agree, they just ruin what happens. And I hadn't even heard about this? When did this happen.
