Muhammad Ali joined Instagram today, and so far, he’s only followed one person: Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson.

According to the actor, the two have had a bond that spans nearly 40 years.

“I first met my hero and friend, Muhammad Ali when I was 6yrs old in New Zealand. He pretended to spar with me and pulled me up on his lap to take this pic,” Johnson wrote on Instagram, along with the photo below. “In that moment, his kindness made me the happiest kid in the world.”

Johnson, now 42, added that 12 years passed before they met again, but Ali remembered him.

“He pulled me in for a hug and whispered, ‘Can you rumble?,'” Johnson wrote. “In 1998, as The Rock in the WWE, he granted me the true honor of using his title, ‘The People’s Champ’ – a title I proudly carry for life.”

After encouraging his more than 5 million followers to follow Ali, Johnson concluded by thanking the legendary boxer for his kindness: “Welcome to Instagram champ! #ThankUForBeingSoKindToMeAsAKid #NeverForgotIt #NothingIsImpossible #YouAreTrulyThePeoplesChamp”

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart Enlist in ‘Central Intelligence’ For New Line (EXCLUSIVE)

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart Central

NOVEMBER 11, 2014 | 09:00AM PT

Following the success of Sony’s “Jump Street” franchise, New Line plans to investigate its own buddy action-comedy, enlisting two of Hollywood’s hottest stars: Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. Sources confirm to Variety the duo will star in “Central Intelligence,” with “We’re the Millers” filmmaker Rawson Marshall Thurber directing the movie.

Scott Stuber will produce through his Bluegrass Films banner, along with Peter Principato and Paul Young of Principato-Young Entertainment. “The Hangover” star Ed Helms is exec producing.

The story begins with a class reunion approaching, as a former high school sports star turned accountant (Hart) is contacted by a classmate (Johnson) who was bullied and humiliated back in the day. The “loser” that the accountant remembers is now a CIA contract killer who ropes him into helping foil a plot to sell classified military secrets.

The original “Central Intelligence” writers are ‎Ike Barinholtz and Dave Stassen, with Sean Anders and John Morris writing a subsequent draft and Thurber taking another pass on the latest script.

New Line plans to begin shooting in the spring with Sam Brown and Michael Disco overseeing. Beau Bauman is managing for Bluegrass.

Both Johnson and Hart began teasing a possible team-up over the weekend via Twitter and Instagram

“Hardest workin’ man in the room, talkin’ to… the other hardest workin’ man in the room @kevinhart4real Keep stackin’ that belt baby boy… #BigBob #GoldenJet #ShitsGonnaBeBanana #YeahILeftOffTheS”

New Line, based at Warner Bros., has enjoyed success through previous projects with both Thurber and Johnson, and Johnson has a number of jobs lined up at the studio — he is currently attached to return for two more “Journey to the Center of the Earth” sequels and will play Black Adam in superhero pic “Shazam.” He is also set to star in disaster film “San Andreas,” which bows next summer.

Thurber is coming off “We’re the Millers,” which grossed $269 million worldwide.

The movie gives New Line the opportunity to team two of the biggest names in their respective genres in one film. Hart has enjoyed a lucrative year with both “Ride Along” and “Think Like a Man Too” striking box office gold. Hart recently finished filming the “Ride Along” sequel and has “The Wedding Ringer” for Screen Gems set to bow on Jan. 16, followed by “Get Hard” with Will Ferrell for Warner Bros., which will open March 27.

Johnson has shown his versatility in his ability to move from action-heavy movies to comedies with ease, and “Central Intelligence” looks set to combine both genres. The star’s most recent pic was “Hercules,” which has grossed $242 million at the worldwide box office, and he can next be seen in “Fast and Furious 7,” which bows in April. On the small screen, Johnson will executive produce and star in “Ballers,” a half-hour comedy that HBO recently picked up to series.

He is repped by WME and The Garcia Companies. Hart is repped by UTA and 3 Art

Dwayne Johnson On ‘Shazam!’ Being ‘Fun’ And ‘Independent,’ Confirms Film Will Exist Outside Of ‘Justice League’

Posted on

Dwayne Johnson has confirmed that Shazam! will be fun and independent, and in the process he also revealed that it won’t be tied into the Justice League film.

Johnson made the comments when he was asked by a fan on Twitter if Shazam! would have a cheerier and funnier disposition than Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and Justice League films.

The former WWE icon then confirmed that would be the case as he wrote that Shazam! is a “NL/DC property” before adding the hashtag “#Independence.” He went on to add, “I guaran-damn-tee we’re gonna have bad ass fun w/Black Adam.”

It had previously been speculated that Shazam! wouldn’t tie into the burgeoning DC movie universe and that it would exist as its own entity. According to Comic Book, Warner Bros. had placed New Line, which it owns, in charge of overseeing any other DC Comics film that weren’t really in the Justice League universe.

Toby Emmerich, who is the president over at New Line, previously teased that this would be the case back in September. While speaking to Entertainment Weekly he explained, “It feels to me like Shazam will have a tone unto itself. It’s a DC comic, but it’s not a Justice League character, and it’s not a Marvel comic. The tone and the feeling of the movie will be different from the other range of comic book movies.”

Emmerich was also at odds to insist that Shazam “will have a sense of fun and a sense of humor” before he warned “but the stakes have to be real.”

This came after Dwayne Johnson confirmed that he would be playing the Black Adam character in Shazam. Johnson presence will certainly give the film a different flavour and style to its contemporaries. However, we won’t be able to truly decipher how original it will be until Shazam is cast and the film’s writer and director are confirmed.

DC’s burgeoning movie universe began with 2013’s Man Of Steel and will be followed in 2016 by the hugely anticipated Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. This will then be followed by a cavalcade of comic book delights with Suicide Squad coming soon after in 2016 too, before Wonder Woman, Justice League Part One, The Flash, Aquaman, and then Shazam, Justice League Part Two, Cyborg, and the Green Lantern will all follow before 2020 too.

If you’re one of those people watching life pass you by or can’t seem to get the ball rolling, then you might be in need of a Wake Up Call. That’s certainly what the most electrifying man in Hollywood thinks. We all know Dwayne Johnson is the epitome of grind. At 42 years old, he’s in the greatest shape of his life and still snags some of the biggest roles that Hollywood has to offer. In 2013, he made his first run at reality television with The Hero, a competition series that put contestants through mental, physical, and moral tests for the title of “hero” and, of course, a cash prize. After eight episodes, TNT pulled the plug on the series, but that won’t stop Rocky from spreading his ambitious philosophies to those in need.

TNT has picked up Dwayne’s new series Wake Up Call. It follows Rocky as he surprises people at their homes and motivates them to make something of themselves. Earlier today, he shared the trailer for his new show on Instagram.

“Here’s the exclusive Instagram trailer for my new transformation show #WakeUpCall No cash prize at the end and no one gets voted off. Just good people who are down on their luck and need a helping hand. Wanted to create a TV show where real change can happen – if you’re willing to put in the work.”
