The two will reunite for the superhero romantic comedy film.
We last told you about Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt coming together for a film together titled ‘Ball and Chain’. Well, the film has now been confirmed to stream on Netflix.
After starring in Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise’, both the actors will lead the film as they play the role of a married couple who are going through a rough time until they have superpowers they can use if they plan on staying together. That’s where the fun begins!
Academy Award nominee Emily V Gordon has penned the script.
This project has become quite the unique & dynamic recipe to cook up. And I’m excited to team up with these very talented women. In #BallAndChain, my dear friend (I’m contractually obligated to call her that) Emily Blunt and I will play a married couple on the verge of divorce, who become blessed with superpowers that only work when we’re together. Written by Oscar nominated @emilyvgordon, who of all things, is also a licensed couples therapist 👀 #BallAndChain @sevenbucksprod @netflix 🌎
The movie is an adaptation of the 1990s comic of the same name by Scott Lobdell.
‘Ball and Chain’ will be banked by Dwayne’s Seven Bucks Production.
On the film, Dwayne said, “Netflix is the perfect partner to deliver this epic superhero/romantic comedy experience.” He added that not only is he excited to reunite with dear friend Emily Blunt in front of the camera but to also collaborate as producing partners as they bring Emily V. Gordon's script to life.
Earlier, Dwayne Johnson had partnered with Netflix for ‘Red Notice’. It is an action-comedy thriller film also starring Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds.
