Jonah Hill The Rundown Dwayne Johnson

It's hard to imagine a time when Dwayne Johnson wasn't the biggest star on the planet, but as with most things in this world, you've got to start somewhere. Following his debut as Mathayus in both THE MUMMY RETURNS and THE SCORPION KING, Dwayne Johnson starred in THE RUNDOWN as Beck, a bounty hunter who wants out of the game but agrees to take on one last bounty by bringing the son of the man he works for back from Brazil. Although THE RUNDOWN wasn't a box-office success, it was well received by critics and helped to launch the career of Mr. Franchise Viagra. Talk of a sequel pops up every so often and now that Johnson is bigger than ever, it might be time to bring Beck back.

Peter Berg, director of THE RUNDOWN, recently spoke with Collider about the state of the project and the surprising actor he wants to bring on-board.

We’ve been talking about it. You know, I wanted to do it with Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson. If I could get Jonah Hill, I’d do it tomorrow. If I could get Dwayne and Jonah Hill, I’d do it tomorrow.

Hill certainly isn't the first name that comes to mind when I think of Dwayne Johnson style action, but he's certainly shown that he has what to takes to juggle action and comedy with the 21 JUMP STREET franchise. A script for THE RUNDOWN sequel has already been written but Peter Berg is aware that a sequel isn't a sure thing; he says that everyone involved would like to do it, but that it's hard to get everybody in the same room. Sound off folks, would you like to see a sequel to THE RUNDOWN with Dwayne Johnson and Jonah Hill?

Peter Berg's next project, DEEPWATER HORIZON, reunites him with his LONE SURVIVOR star Mark Wahlberg and hits theaters on September 30, 2016.

I mike Jonah Hil but he has zero sense of humor...

he was in a talk show on french TV last week promoting the release of war dogs in France, and a humorist woman said to him :
“I have a fantasy with you, Jonah. Just “fantasy” it works, so I end with this valve… It would be that it is found both in a hotel room in the evening, we talk, you make me laugh a lot and then, all of a sudden, you bring in your buddies DiCaprio and Brad Pitt and you, you leave.“
He did a poker face and he allegedly canceled the rest of his French media appearances

Yeah, I remember on one of the Apatow group commentaries, I think it was Knocked Up, he got really pissed off and actually left when it seemed like he couldn't take a joke. It was played off as a goof but I think it may have been real.

Loved the first

I'd love to see Scott back, their chemistry was great, and he's certainly grown as an actor since then. But not too sure about Hill though, seems like they would need someone to counter the more reserved Beck.

I loved the original and would welcome this. It would be cool to get Sean William Scott back though. He was hilarious in the original!

Can we bring back Seann William Scott instead? Jonah Hill is irritating.

And Seann William Scott is not irritating? It's a pick your poison situation here, and Jonah Hill, in my opinion, is a better actor than Seann William Scott. Scott plays Stifler every time. At least Jonah Hill gave two Oscar nominated performances. Either way, in terms of annoying, I'd say it's about even, with Scott, for me, taking the slight edge.

Oscar nominations aside, Jonah Hill's main comedic talent is acting awkward and taking pretend drugs. He's not going to be very funny in a PG-13 movie.

I don't have a problem with Hill, but would like Seann William Scott to be in it in some way.
