Dwayne Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions working on Ric Flair biopic

The Wrap is reporting that Seven Bucks Productions, the production company of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Dany Garcia, are developing a movie based on the life of the Nature Boy Ric Flair.

Johnson, Garcia and Hiram Garcia will produce for Seven Bucks alongside Misher Films’ Kevin Misher. Misher worked with Seven Bucks to produce the Fighting With My Family movie based on the family of current AEW star Saraya.

“As a kid who grew up in professional wrestling, I idolized, The Nature Boy Ric Flair,” Johnson said in a statement. “He was a hero to me. And once I broke into the wrestling business and began to spill my own sweat and blood – my reverence for Ric turned to respect. Because I realized just how rare and impossible it is to disrupt the wrestling business, culture and truly change the game – and that’s exactly what Ric Flair did. This project is personal, and we can’t wait to tell his unbelievable story. As always, thank you for the house, Ric.”

No timeline was given as to when this project is expected to start filming.
