Here’s a surprising development but it looks like Dwayne Johnson is taking on a producing role for the upcoming adaptation of It Takes Two. The movie was looking for a home, which it has now found on Amazon Prime. dj2 Entertainment, the team behind the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, is still staying on to produce but is joined by Johnson‘s Seven Bucks Productions and Amazon Studios. Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia also join the project as producers.
That’s not all, as Johnson is also rumored to potentially star in the film but it wasn’t officially confirmed. The story follows parents May and Cody as a wish by their daughter transforms them into dolls that set out on an adventure to get their original bodies back and potentially save their marriage, as they were going through a divorce at the time.
It Takes Two will be written by Pat Casey and Josh Miller, who also worked on both Sonic the Hedgehog films. They alongside dj2 have a first-look deal with Amazon which is included with this project. Hazelight Studios’ Josef Fares and Oskar Wolontis are also on board as executive producers, as they were the creators of the original game. Kimberly Bialek is also overseeing the production for Seven Bucks Productions.
