The Rock Goes Family Friendly With "Daddy's Girl"

by | July 19, 2005 | Comments

Larry Carroll of Movies on MTV had a sit-down with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson on the set of his new movie "Gridiron Gang," and discussion regarding "The Pacifier" led to a not-too-startling revelation: The Rock’s going to do his own kiddie comedy!

"Daddy’s Girl" seems to have Mr. Johnson pretty excited: "I play basically Terrell Owens of the NFL, only more obnoxious, if you can imagine. I talk more trash, and I’m better, and I’m everything that I am … All of a sudden, there’s a knock on my door, and there’s somebody at my door whom I have to take care of for the rest of my life. And that somebody happens to be a little 5-year-old girl. It’s all about how I deal with that."

The project is set up at Disney, obviously, and will be overseen by producers Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray, the gentlemen behind "The Rookie" and "Miracle."

For even more of The Rock’s gentler side, head on over to MTV Movies for the full interview.
