Freedom grad Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be back for “Fast & Furious 8,” as the seventh installment of the “Fast & Furious” franchise breaks records.
On Friday the film which stars Johnson, along with Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker, became the fastest movie to gross $1 billion worldwide in just 17 days. Having earned $1.153 billion, it is now the seventh highest-grossing film of all time.
Johnson told MTV News that “Fast & Furious 8″ might be set in New York City.
Johnson also signed with Disney to voice the demi-god Maui for the studios next animated musical “Moana.”
In the film, a young woman uses her navigational talents to set sail for a fabled island and is joined by her hero, Maui.
On Facebook, Johnson confirmed he will be singing in the film “Manly and off key of course” he said.
“Moana” is set for a Nov. 26, 2016 release.
Next up on the big screen for Johnson is the 3-D disaster flick “San Andreas” which is coming out May 29 and in which Johnson plays a helicopter pilot who makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his estranged daughter in the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California.
Johnson, who attended Freedom High School in 11th and 12th grades, was the box office champion at the movies in 2013, according to Forbes magazine, which said his movies generated $1.3 billion in ticket sales.
