The Rock to become the Tooth Fairy
The Rock, now known by his real name Dwayne Johnson, has been signed up by 20th Century Fox for The Tooth Fairy, which begins shooting in August, Variety reports.
But before anyone begins thinking that the former world wrestler has swapped his muscular presence for fairy wings and a wand, The Rock will in fact be playing an ordinary man who has been charged with saving the land of the tooth fairies.
The beefy actor has just finished filming another comedy, Get Smart, which is due out in August.
Playing Agent 23, he will star alongside a solid-gold cast that includes Bill Murray, Terence Stamp, Alan Arkin, Anne Hathaway and Steve Carell.
Other movies graced by The Rock included The Mummy Returns and The Scorpion King.
