One Dwayne Johnson Blockbuster May Be Getting a Sequel

by Samantha Whidden

His hit film San Andreas made its debut in theaters more than six years ago, and now it seems like Dwayne Johnson’s natural disaster film may actually get a sequel. 

While speaking to Screen Rant, the producer of Dwayne Johnson’s action-packed film, Hiram Garcia, revealed that there are some ideas for a San Andreas sequel. “We’re working o something there on how we can continue that story. New Line and Warner have always wanted a sequel to that.”

Garcia also stated that disaster movies like Dwayne Johnson’s 2015 film are so much fun and it was a great concept. “Our friend, Beau Flynn, had come up with the idea of being like, ‘You know what? You love disaster movies. And I would love the idea to do something based around a giant earthquake in the San Andreas fault.’”

The San Andreas producer then shared that he and his team have been working hard to figure out how they could crack something in the natural disaster film space. “But we’d love to be able to continue telling the story in that world. And I agree with you, there’s something to just the big cataclysmic.”

Garcia then added that he felt like The Day After Tomorrow and Independence Day director Roland Emmerich is the master of that kind of film. “He’s, that is no one wants to destroy the world more but we’d like to try and take a couple of little pieces of it and see what we can blow up as well.”

Dwayne Johnson States He Has a Great Story Idea For ‘San Andreas 2’ 

While chatting with SiriusXM last week, Dwayne Johnson spoke about plans for San Andreas 2. “There’s a great idea for San Andreas that we had, I think it’s great. You know the challenge that we’re having honestly is what you guys said, is scheduling.”

In San Andreas, Dwayne Johnson played the role of Los Angeles Fire Department helicopter rescue pilot, Ray Gaines. When a 9.1. magnitude earthquake devastated both Los Angeles and San Francisco, he finds himself rescuing his estranged wife Emma (who was portrayed by Carla Gugino) from a skyscraper in Los Angeles. The duo then attempts to find their daughter Blake in the midst of the natural disaster’s chaos. The film ends with the family reuniting safely. The film brought in a total of $474 million from the box office. 

Along with Dwayne Johnson and Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Ioan Gruffudd, Archie Panjabi, and Paul Giamatti starred in the film. 

In addition to Johnson, Daddario stated she was still interested in reprising her role in the San Andreas sequel. “I haven’t heard word in a couple of years, so yeah, I don’t have any information on that. But I would return, I really enjoy doing big movies like that, and the first one did well. I think I wouldn’t have a problem doing another one at all.”
